Applications are once again being accepted from East End charities for grants being made through the All For The East End (AFTEE) Fund at the Long Island Community Foundation. Grants through this program will support nonprofit organizations serving Long Island’s East End communities of Riverhead, Shelter Island, Southampton, Southold, and East Hampton. Proposals will be accepted to support projects and programs in the fields of health and welfare, the environment, arts and culture, education, and youth. An advisory committee consisting of one representative from each of the five East End towns will help guide the Long Island Community Foundation in determining the projects to be funded.
The application deadline is August 18, 2016. Additional information and guidelines can be found at www.licf.org under the Grant Seekers tab and then Building Stronger Neighborhoods – AFTEE Fund.
The All For The East End Fund is a field-of-interest fund established within the Long Island Community Foundation in 2013 by All For The East End (AFTEE), which is an independent 501(C)(3) organization whose mission is to raise funds and awareness for East End needs.
