Community Foundation of Oyster Bay
The Community Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that raises money to help fund a variety of local organizations chosen by its volunteer Board of Trustees for the charitable work they do to benefit local residents in need. The group is a grass roots organization formed in 1965 by a group of concerned local residents and have helped fund a variety of such programs in the Oyster Bay community for more than 50 years.
The Community Foundation was started to facilitate the first Head Start Program in Oyster Bay, and expanded to fund a broad array of services for children and families, services for the Hispanic community, services for Seniors, and efforts to revitalize the hamlet of Oyster Bay. The Board continually evaluates the needs of our community in an effort to channel funds to programs and services that improve the lives of our neighbors in need. The Community Foundation is in the community, working for the community.
