Other Ways to Get Involved

Volunteer

At Greenwich House, each person can make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. We are happy to accept volunteers who are interested in becoming more civically involved. While daily individual volunteer opportunities may be limited, there is always the opportunity to participate by engaging your company in the Greenwich House corporate volunteer program, or to become involved with our Advisory Council and parent committees. In the past, volunteers have joined our students on field trips, helped serve special holiday meals at our senior centers, repainted our facilities and planted flower boxes for our rooftop playground. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Diane Perrin, Development and Events Manager by email or (212) 991-0003 ext. 401.

  • Leave a specific dollar amount or a particular property

  • Leave the remainder of your estate after providing for your heirs.

The Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch Legacy Society

By naming Greenwich House in your will as the beneficiary of a retirement plan or insurance policy, we will acknowledge your thoughtful gesture with your name engraved on our beautiful Legacy Society plaque in the lobby of 27 Barrow Street. (Please note: this recognition is optional; you may remain anonymous if you choose).
