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.
