Long Island Community Foundation
Since 1978, LICF has assisted donors of all means to effectively and efficiently support the issues they care about most. Through the stewardship of LICF, more than $120 million has been granted from hundreds of funds established by individuals, families and businesses to improve the well-being of the people and communities of Long Island and beyond.
The mission of the Long Island Community Foundation is to enhance the well-being of the people and communities of Long Island. The Foundation does this by:
- Providing leadership in the identification of current and future community needs, and building a permanent endowment to address these needs;
- Strengthening, through effective grantmaking and technical assistance, the capacity of the Island's not-for-profit sector to respond to community needs;
- Offering comprehensive services to donors, thereby supporting and enhancing their philanthropy;
- Working cooperatively with others seeking to encourage philanthropy on Long Island, or otherwise to support the mission of the Foundation.
