Help us increase the amount of food we distribute . . . increase the nutritional quality of that food . . . assist more families in becoming self-sufficient . . . and speak for those whose voices are silent because they are too young or too hungry and weak to speak.

Approximately 89% of our expenses go to support our programs; only 11% of our costs go to fundraising and administration. Our financial information is available on GuideStar, the national database of U.S. charitable organizations. Type our name or EIN (11-2524512) in their Quick Search field. Using GuideStar is free, but you are asked to sign up to access any information beyond a brief summary.
Contributions of money or property made to a "qualified organization" (the Internal Revenue Service term for charities like Long Island Cares) are generally tax-deductible. We provide IRS Publication 526 - Charitable Contributions for information, but donors are encouraged to consult a tax accountant or use tax preparation software to be sure of the deductibility of their donations.
