Help us feed the hungry.


University Community Social Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends on donations from people like you to continue our work. Despite our name, we are not affiliated with any university, nor are we affiliated with any religious organization. We are entirely volunteer-run, without a single employee, so 95 cents of every dollar you give goes towards providing meals and services to our guests. Please make your fully tax-deductible donation today.


As a reminder, many companies provide matching funds for charitable giving by their employees while others have programs that make contributions to charities with whom employees are involved. Please check with your employer.



Please Make Check Payable To:

University Community Social Services

P.O. Box 20930

Tompkins Square Station

New York, New York 10009

We prefer donations by check because every dollar you give goes to work for our guests, while PayPal (2% to 4%) and Network For Good (5%) extract  processing fees.   

A copy of our most recently filed financial report is available from the Charities Registry on the New York State Attorney General’s website or by writing the New York State Attorney General, Charities Bureau, 28 Liberty Street, New York, NY 10005 or calling (212) 416-8401.
