The Long Island Community Chest is interested in helping people who have nowhere else to turn. Individuals who have exhausted all traditional means of help.
Our founders, Matt Silver and Jamie Austin, have been involved in many charities and not-for-profit organizations on Long Island, and wanted to create an organization that gave back to their local community. They wanted to see the rewards of their fundraising efforts in person. By helping specific individuals directly, they can get to know those they help.
Long Island Community Chest is an on-going fund to provide immediate short-term financial support to need individuals and families on Long Island.
Recipients shall be individuals or families recently experiencing traumatic life altering setbacks to their day to day lives. Individuals who have exhausted all traditional means of help such as a parent unable to work because of a car accident, or someone unable to pay for unexpected medical problems. The LICC is interested in helping specific, identifiable people who have nowhere else to turn.
