Philanthropy

Long Island Elite (LIE) is dedicated to supporting and giving back to the community of Long Island. Part of our mission is to take a leadership role and help local non-profits and other agencies meet their organizational goals through fundraising and creating awareness.

LIE has been committed to charitable initiatives since the organization’s inception in 2002 and through our ongoing fundraising efforts, Long Island Elite and its members have positively affected a wide cross-section of the non-profit community right here in our own backyard.

Our fundraising endeavors include our annual Charity Masquerade, held from 2004–2013 at Oheka Castle. Progressing into a new charitable concept, LIE has developed our Charity Partner of the Year program through our LIE Gives initiative. We have also made great strides in mentoring the youth of Long Island at our LIE Believe Symposium.
