LIE Fundraising Efforts

Since 2002, LIE’s fundraising efforts have have positively impacted the lives of those in the local community through proactive fundraising efforts by our members.

Long Island Elite has been dedicated to giving back to our local community. We take a leadership role in helping Long Island not-for-profits and community organizations meet their fundraising and awareness goals.

Professional Mentoring

We have also made great strides with youth mentorship at our LIE Believe Symposium, a movement dedicated to inspiring young adults and business professionals to make our community a better place to live, work, and thrive.

Charity Partner of the Year Initiative

In 2014, Long Island Elite started a new chapter of our legacy, changing the way we support and raise funds for local charities. We began selecting one local nonprofit to be our annual charity partner each year. For the last four years, this initiative has been a tremendous success that helped both our organization, and our partners succeed.

2018 Charity Partner of the Year: ACLD

This year, we were honored to support the Association for Children with Learning and Developmental Disabilities (ACLD) as our 2018 Charity Partner. We donated $100,000 to the organization.


About ACLD

ACLD is a leading not-for-profit agency on Long Island that proudly serves the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. ACLD is committed to a person-centered approach to ensuring people with autism, learning and other developmental disabilities can succeed.

ACLD Mission

The ACLD mission is to provide the opportunity for children, teens, and adults with disabilities to pursue enviable lives, to increase their independence, and to improve their quality of life.

CQL Award

In 2016, the local nonprofit was awarded a three-year National Accreditation from the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL). CQL is dedicated to raising the bar for organizations, like ACLD, in defining, measuring and improving the quality of life for all people. ACLD needed to meet CQL’s strict criteria and demonstrate its ongoing commitment to person-centered excellence.
