In order to expedite estate distributions, provisions in the donor’s will or trust agreements should include the statement: “I give, devise, bequeath [assets/percent share of the residue of my estate] to the New York Academy of Sciences, with its principal office at 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10007.”

If needed, the Academy’s tax ID number is: 13-1773640

Most bequests are used to provide support wherever it is needed most. If you wish to designate a specific purpose for your bequest, we encourage you to discuss your wishes with us in advance as the needs of the Academy change over time.
