  • 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.
