Our Professional Partnerships and Community Involvement
Manhattan Gold & Silver is proud to be an active member in several 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 jewelry 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 its members compliance training related to the federal, state, and local laws that apply to the industry.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. The BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S.
Every year in October, we hold a fundraiser and donate 100% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.
Gold is heavy and very valuable – it doesn’t take a large amount before shipping and insurance costs start to get very expensive. However, if you use our Ship & Sell service you can still get the high payouts MGS is known for in addition to reduced insurance costs. It’s all thanks to our partnership Parcel Pro. By working with our dedicated Parcel Pro agent, our customers can get free guidance on shipping options and discounted insurance coverage when they want to use our Ship & Sell feature. This keeps your shipping costs from absorbing too much of your payout.
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. Sign up for our newsletter and read our blog to stay up to date on our latest community involvements.
