Newsday Charities says THANK YOU.

August 7th, 2023

For over 65 years we have been honored to work together with you to help Long Islanders in need.

Regrettably, we must now say goodbye to Newsday Charities, and will no longer be accepting donations or unsolicited grant applications. As Newsday continues to evolve, we have made the difficult decision to redirect certain resources to focus on our core business of journalism.

To our donors – Thank you for all you have done for our neighbors in need. We’re proud of the accomplishments of Newsday Charities – uniting the community in support of local nonprofits and know we could not have done it without you!

We hope that you will continue to help through direct donations to the organizations Newsday Charities funded, or to any others that mean the most to you. For your convenience, a list of the organizations we supported in recent years can be accessed here.

Be assured that 100% of all prior donations will be distributed to local 501(c)(3) organizations with programs that fulfill our mission to address hunger, homelessness, child abuse prevention/treatment, and youth education.
