Donate

Our work is free to all and does not require a subscription. Instead of charging for access, we rely on the generosity of members, donors and sponsors. No amount is too small.

As a member, you’ll receive insider briefings from THE CITY’s editors and invitations to STOOP SESSIONS held in all five boroughs. Membership also includes an invitation to FIVE BOROUGHS: THE CITY FORUM – an annual members event for discussion and debate of the topics that matter most to New Yorkers.

THE CITY is applying for recognition by the IRS as a not for profit 501c3 charitable organization. In the meantime, your donation to THE CITY is tax deductible to the full extent of the law through our fiscal sponsorship agreement with the Lenfest Institute for Journalism, a project of TPF Special Assets Fund, which is recognized by the IRS as a not for profit 501c3 charitable organization.
