HHT is committed to following best practices regarding nonprofit transparency, and are pleased to offer this information to empower informed giving.
HHT’s fiscal year runs from July 1st to June 30th. Fundraising supports our day-to-day operating costs, including program, administrative, and fundraising expenses, but our reported annual operating costs include City funding through sole source contracts that are funneled directly into capital restoration projects at the individual houses. These projects are managed by City employees assigned to HHT (for more about this relationship, see Partner with Parks). This capital expenditure is itemized in HHT’s Form 990 as “Restoration” expenses listed under “Other Expenses.”

At the Historic House Trust of New York City (HHT), we treat private donor information with sensitivity and confidentiality. Records are maintained in a secure donor database and access is limited to HHT staff. HHT Board members may be given donor information on a limited basis for the purpose of acknowledgement and limited communications. Donor information is disclosed as required by law (e.g. IRS Form 990). Due to its relationship with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, HHT is also annually required to submit limited information about donations over $5,000 to the New York City Conflicts of Interest Board. Please click here for information regarding the Annual Disclosure Law.
HHT is committed to the principles outlined in the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ Donor Bill of Rights. HHT does not sell, share, or otherwise exchange donor lists with any other entity, nor does it obtain lists from other entities without the consent of their donors.
