Our Funders

You can make a tax-exempt contribution to 596 Acres through NY Charities by clicking here or by sending us a check (info below). One-time donations are great but a small recurring gift that happens every month is another great way to keep us going!

Sending a check? Make it out to "The Fund for the City of New York" with "596 Acres" in the memo line; then mail to:

596 Acres, Inc. 
540 President Street #2E
Brooklyn NY 11215
