Cash Contributions

Your Membership or Gift Membership
Through your tax-deductible contributions to the Guardians' Funds, you can leave a legacy to men in the greater Manhattan area. Every new contributor of $100 or more to the Endowed Fund will receive a "Guardian" lapel pin that can be worn to help spark interest among other men. Members continue to give through an annual contribution and through participation in Guardian events.

Guardian membership is also an excellent option for honoring a man who has played a special role or made a difference in your life:
  • A husband, son, brother, nephew, or grandson
  • A man who has been a Guardian in your life
  • A younger man to whom you are a mentor
