Long Island’s Community Foundation Announces $365,000 in First Round of Grants for 2019

The Long Island Community Foundation is giving $365,000 to help 19 nonprofits encourage the arts for culturally diverse students on the East End, campaign to eliminate single-use plastic items in Nassau County, restore our Island’s natural habitats, and connect people to training and career opportunities. Funded projects also will help advocate for transit-oriented development in Elmont, Uniondale, Hempstead and Central Islip and encourage pediatric service providers to promote supplemental nutrition programs.

This is the Foundation’s first round of grants for 2019, following its total giving of nearly $1.5 million total to more than 60 nonprofits last year from its competitive grants program. These grants would not be made possible without donor funds like the Henry Phillip Kraft Fund which exists to fund environmental projects, like clean water and restoration; or the DeWitt Wallace Fund for Youth – helping young people reach their full potential; and the Henry Shepard Fund – which supports hunger programs. Long Island’s community foundation is committed to ensuring that our region remains a beacon of economic prosperity, acceptance, and opportunity for all.
