Our founders, Matthew Silver and Jamie Austin, have been involved in many charities and not-for-profit organiations on Long Island, and wanted to create an organziation 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.
There will be no administrative costs, no Black-Tie Galas
Our desire is to avoid non-charitable, self-created events, Instead, we will utilize the attraction of existing events, such as New York City Broadway Theatre. By designing fundraisers around these events, we will offer participants the combination of an interesting evening out and the satisfaction that they also raised money for a good cause at the same time. Other events will be organized enabling companies to introduce their staff to what the LICC is all about and provide the company with recognition for their involvement in the Long Island Community Chest.
