The Long Island Community Foundation Board of Advisors recently announced the approval of $537,000 in grants to 25 area non-profits through its competitive grant-making program, addressing the Island’s most urgent needs.
“We had an overwhelming amount of requests for support from our nonprofit partners during this grant cycle,” said David M. Okorn, executive director at the Foundation. “It’s still a tough economy and the demand for their services continues to increase. We are so grateful to our generous donors who make these grants possible and improve the quality of life for all Long Islanders.”
One of the beneficiaries was the NuHealth Foundation, which funds in East Meadow. The foundation received a $50,000 donation.
"The state health care finance being what it is, it's imperative that we enlist philanthropic support to grow and enhance the breadth and quality of patient care NuHealth System provides," said Deidre Parrish Williams, the executive director of the NuHealth Foundation. "We are grateful for the Long Island Community Foundation's support."
