Our Professional Partnerships and Community Involvement
Manhattan Gold & Silver is proud to be an active member in a number of national, professional organizations.
The Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC), educates jewelers, but with a specific focus on legal compliance. Founded in 1917, the JVC strives to educate and protect all levels of the jewelry industry against liability, litigation and to stop negative publicity. JVC is considered the industry’s leading authority on legal compliance and is a champion of safeguarding the industry’s integrity.
The New York State Jewelers Association was founded in 1909 to foster, promote and protect the welfare of the jewelers in New York State. The NYSJA focuses on mentoring its members and educating jewelers on the latest best business practices, ethics, and industry developments.
The National Pawnbrokers Association (NPA) was founded to support responsible pawnbrokers in the US through guidance on how to be involved on a local, statewide and national basis. Founded in 1987 (just two years after Manhattan Gold & Silver), the NPA also offers members compliance training related to the federal, state and local laws that apply to the industry.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation was founded in 1982, and has grown to be one of the most influential organizations in breast cancer research. Every year, we hold our Cupcakes for Cancer fundraiser and donate 100% of the proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
In addition to our professional partnerships, we are also happy to partner with the Manhattan community throughout the year for a number of charitable and educational events. Stay tuned to our MGS News page and blog to keep abreast of our latest community involvements.
