LIE Fundraising Efforts

Since 2002, LIE’s fundraising efforts 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 non-profit to be our annual charity partner each year. This initiative has been a tremendous success that has helped both our organization, and our partners succeed.
