United Way of Long Island Announces 2012 Community Partner Grants

Continuing to Support Long Island’s Safety Net When Needed Most

United Way of Long Island has awarded 109 grants to local nonprofit agencies, totaling $1,390,405 for the 2012 year. United Way also continues to pursue funding that helps its nonprofit partners to provide critical services to Long Islanders in need.

Despite a prolonged economic climate which has been particularly challenging to Long Island’s local nonprofit landscape, United Way of Long Island has managed to hold steady the grant amounts made to its member agencies and – in some cases – increase the grant allocation amount.

United Way works to advance the common good by collaborating with and supporting community-based health and human service agencies that address the critical needs of Long Islanders in the areas of education, income/financial stability and health.
