It goes without saying that these are unprecedented times, and we hope—first and foremost—that you, your family and your friends are staying safe and healthy.
But apart from all this critically important work for our clients, we have another priority that we must continue. The pandemic struck just as we were about to announce a new four-million-dollar capital and endowment fundraising campaign—and the pandemic suddenly made our campaign more terribly urgent.
The Treiber Family has donated 28,000 square feet of office space—an entire customizable floor, valued at $3.5 million—in a modern office building on Oak Street in Garden City. The gift comes at a time when we have outgrown our current headquarters several times over and are in desperate need of more suitable space. The envisioned Oak Street facility has all the qualities that our current headquarters lacks. The potential of this new space is prodigious, and the results could truly be transformative for all of Long Island. With your help through this capital/endowment campaign, here is just some of what we can accomplish together...
You see, the campaign has three goals:
Capital Improvement Goal ($1,500,000): A new Garden City Program and Operations Hub. This will include a new Children's Mental Health & Wellness Center, Senior Services Center, and Administrative Operations Center.
Addiction Prevention, Treatment, & Recovery Services- Delivered On Demand ($500,000): A bold new approach to substance use disorders- combining science and services to combat alcohol, opioids, and other drugs.
Endowment Goal ($2,000,000): A robust endowment to secure Long Island's future together.
