When you contribute to Community Health Charities of New York, your contribution is directed to our 54 local member charities, all of which conduct research and provide support and care to thousands of people throughout the state of New York. We conduct rigorous screening of charities before they are allowed to become a member of CHC-NY because we want you to know that your contributions will make an impact.
CHC member charities meet accountability standards that include the following: each charity must undergo an annual application and review process; be a 501(c)3 non-profit organization as certified by the IRS; have an annual audit conducted in accordance with the generally accepted auditing standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants; have an active voluntary board of directors; and have fundraising and administrative costs that are at or below industry standards.
