Making an investment in tomorrow, today...

It's the Giving Season.

We are helping Long Islanders make a difference.

This #GivingTuesday, give locally.

Thousands of Long Islanders amplify their charitable giving through the Long Island Community Foundation, the community foundation for the region. This year, LICF is offering generous neighbors three ways to make Giving Tuesday and the entire giving season.

At a time when busy people are overwhelmed by appeals for donations, LICF’s three options help Long Islanders make sure that they are making a real difference by helping nonprofits that educate children, protect the environment, feed the hungry, and much more.

Together, LICF and donors can have an impact on causes,people, and places. Here are the three quick ways:

SUPPORT OUR ANNUAL FUND: Can’t decide which local organization to support? Choose our Annual Fund and help respond to the Island’s most urgent problems. Or, if you do have a donor-advised fund with us, look for the Annual Fund tab in MyNYCT. Either way, help us turn more great ideas into projects that make life better on Long Island. You choose how we put your gift to work, supporting children, arts and culture, or Long Island’s most urgent needs.

GIVE LOCALLY: Support your favorite local charities. Make this Giving Tuesday (and the days before and after) count! Not sure where to give? Check out our Investing in Change newsletters or our press releases for inspiration. Or give us a call (our contact information is below.)

PLAN FOR THE FUTURE: Let Giving Tuesday be the start of the conversation. Support the future of local, vital, and efficient nonprofits through an enduring legacy. Talk to us at LICF about how easy it is to leave a bequest in your will, or to make a planned gift. You can do something NOW to provide much-needed help in the future.
