The Manhasset Community Fund (MCF) has begun its annual drive to help local charities. For 70 years, the Manhasset Community Fund has supported local nonprofit programs in our community. The fund raises money from the community and reviews grant proposals for projects that make a difference to those who need a helping hand. Whether it is for survival, hunger, mental/emotional health, or opening doors for the disadvantaged, the Manhasset Community Fund is there.

Last year the Manhasset Community Fund was able to support the following local charities: Adventures in Learning, Child Abuse Prevention Services, Great Neck-Manhasset Community Child Care, Island Harvest, Manhasset-Great Neck EOC, Manhasset SEPTA, Manhasset Student Aid Association, Manhasset Women’s Coalition Against Breast Cancer, Nicholas Center For Autism, North Shore Child & Family Guidance, PASE of Manhasset and the Science Museum of Long Island. Consider the Manhasset Community Fund a way to donate local and help many of your neighbors in need.
