Newsday Charities Help-A-Family

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, homelessness, youth education and child abuse prevention/treatment to help at-risk Long Islanders strengthen their lives and become self-sufficient. Funds are raised through two public campaigns - Kids Campaign and Help-A-Family. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, those less fortunate in our communities will have a chance to improve their lives. Together, we are building a stronger Long Island for tomorrow by investing in our children, adults and families today.

Newsday’s charitable giving programs have a long history dating back to the early 1950s. In 2000, Newsday Charities began as a fund of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. Through that partnership, 500 grants totaling $15.5 Million were distributed to Long Island nonprofits. In August 2017, Newsday Charities became an independent public charity, assuming full management of its programs.
