THE HEART OF
THE COMMUNITY
PAST GRANTS
Many organizations ask us what kinds of grants we give. We hope the following sampling of some of our recent grants will help.

Adelphi University : Long Island is suffering from a serious shortage of nurses. The Foundation established an endowed Scholarship to provide funds for students attending the School of Nursing. We hope that this scholarship will put nursing school within the reach of students who might not otherwise be able to attend, while addressing a critical need on Long Island.
We are also happy to support Adelphi’s Long Island Center for Nonprofit Leadership. In this difficult economy, every opportunity to help our local nonprofit community operate more efficiently is a help to the community as a whole. Summit 2009 was a tremendous success with over 200 nonprofit leaders and executives from across the metropolitan region in attendance.

Empire State College:
The Foundation is delighted to fund scholarships for working nurses who wish to complete their Bachelors, helping them to move up into critically needed administrative positions.

Farms for City Kids : Enriches the lives of disadvantaged students by providing the experience of helping to run a 1,052 acre working Vermont dairy farm during a one week stay. The intellectually and physically challenging farm activities broaden students’ perspectives, and build self-confidence and social skills. We are pleased to help fund this innovative program.
New York Hall of Science: The Foundation supported innovative curriculum development and interactive programming called Mission Blast Off! for elementary and middle-schools students in the New York Hall of Science's (NYSCI) After School Science Clubs that

brought together the physics of rocketry with the joy of playing miniature golf. Players of NYSCI's Rocket Park Mini Golf exhibit explore key science concepts such as propulsion, gravity, escape velocity, launch window, gravitational assist, and more as they putt through nine holes. Rocket Park Mini Golf is truly where fun and learning are par for the course!

Island Harvest: In support of its mission to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island, the New York Community Bank Foundation provided major support for Island Harvest’s core Food Collection and Distribution Program.

Queens Theatre in the Park : Queens’ diverse, growing population is exposed to a wide range of cultural events through the Queens Theatre in the Park’s First Time Free Program. The Foundation is proud to support this programmatic outreach into the community.

South Nassau Hospital: The Foundation is pleased to fund the Senior Outreach Program, which provides health outreach, education, screening and immunization services to seniors, allowing them to maintain their health and continue living in the community.
