As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Bottomless Closet relies on the generosity of donors at all levels to provide our vital job and career readiness services to disadvantaged New York City women.

In 2023, we saw a 50% increase in demand for our services and served, 1,578 individual women through our in-person Pre-Interview and Post-Hire Programs while a further 1,616 women participated in our self-sufficiency workshop program.

There are a wide variety of ways to support our mission and know that you are helping a woman in need to create a new future for herself and her family as well.

Matching Gifts

Today, more and more companies financially match donations that their employees make to non-profit organizations. Companies usually match at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at 2:1 or even a 3:1 ratio!

Ensure your gift will make maximum impact by checking on our online donation form if your employer will match it or letting us know if you send a gift via check.

Stock Gifts

By giving appreciated assets (like stocks held for more than one year), you’ll get a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the asset and avoid any capital gains tax that would have applied if you had sold the stock and made your gift in cash.

Planned and Legacy Gifts

Your long-term support of Bottomless Closet will help us meet our current goals and reach further into the future. By including Bottomless Closet in your will or trust, naming Bottomless Closet as a beneficiary of part of a retirement asset, or taking advantage of other giving opportunities, you can preserve your assets now and support Bottomless Closet for years to come. Find out more here.

Donor Advised Funds

The benefits of using a donor-advised fund are strong and, with the new tax laws, are expected to grow in appeal to strategic donors. They are far easier to establish than a private foundation and allow you to support Bottomless Closet with relatively small amounts of money. Find out more here.

Charitable IRA Rollover

If you’re 70 ½ or older, the IRA Charitable Rollover provides you with an excellent opportunity to make a gift during your lifetime from an asset that would be subject to multiple levels of taxation if it remained in your taxable estate. Find out more here.
