Grant Making

The Foundation supports non-profit organizations whose programs benefit abused and at-risk children primarily on Long Island.  Since inception, the Marcie Mazzola Foundation has hosted innovative fundraising events and distributes the proceeds to organizations that support the Foundation’s mission.

Annual grants can range from $1,000 – $10,000 depending on the stated needs of the applicant.  Organizations must meet the Grant Criteria as stated in the Grant Application.  Those who have received prior grants are required to submit a new grant request each year if they wish to be considered for ongoing financial support.
