Because You Care…
THANK YOU to the many generous Long Islanders who donated to the 2022 Newsday Charities Kids Campaign. Despite the rising cost of living impacting many people’s daily lives, the Kids Campaign raised $70,691.20. Your kindness will help enrich the lives of Long Island’s most vulnerable children, enabling them to grow, dream and thrive.
100% of the money raised supports programs that provide healthy meals, stable housing, safe havens from abuse and educational opportunities.
Even as the coronavirus pandemic took hold bringing additional unemployment, food insecurity and instability to our community, many generous Long Islanders stepped up to help their neighbors in need donating $312,166 to the Newsday Charities Long Island COVID-19 Relief Fund. Newsday pays administrative cost, so 100% of the money raised will be granted to local nonprofit agencies that are providing critical services to help sustain Long Islanders who have been impacted by this crisis.

Newsday Charities helps create a better tomorrow.
People in crisis may not always be recognizable. Thousands of Long Island children and families struggle with hunger, homelessness, abuse and the lack of a proper education. We’re working to change that.
Nearly 228,000 Long Islanders, including 68,000 children, face hunger and food insecurity. We’re working to ensure that all Long Islanders have access to nourishing meals.
There are 3,696 people on Long Island who are homeless – 1,128 are children. We’re working to ensure that all Long Islanders have a stable place to call home.
Each year 14,000 cases of child abuse or neglect are reported on Long Island. We’re working to ensure that Long Island’s kids are safe, protected and cared for.
Every child deserves a quality education. We’re working to ensure that all Long Island’s kids have the tools they need to be successful in school.
Who We Are
Newsday Charities is committed to improving the lives of disadvantaged Long Islanders. Grants are made to local nonprofit organizations that provide vital programs in the areas of hunger, housing, youth education and child abuse prevention/treatment. Funds are raised through two public campaigns – Kids Campaign and Help-A-Family.
The Help-A-Family campaign is committed to improving the lives of Long Island’s at-risk children and families. Your gift will help provide nutritious meals, stable housing, youth educational opportunities and a haven from abuse.
Kids Campaign supports local nonprofit agencies that provide aid to vulnerable kids and their families. Our goal is that all Long Island children have a safe and stable place to call home, receive a proper education and never go to bed hungry.
