Newsday Charities

Newsday Mother and Child

In 2000, Newsday expanded its long-term support of helping those in need on Long Island and partnered with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation to establish Newsday Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund.

Newsday Charities is committed to helping those less fortunate in our community improve their lives and become self-sufficient. With the generous support of donors and matching funds provided by the McCormick Foundation, grants are made to qualified nonprofit organizations with programs that concentrate on child abuse prevention and treatment; child and youth education; housing; and hunger.

Since inception, over $13 million has been granted through Newsday Charities, making a positive impact in the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children, families and adults every year.
