$2,500 Grant Supports Tools for Victims of Domestic Violence

June 25, 2015

The Retreat, a Long Island nonprofit working with families involved with domestic violence, was awarded a $2,500 grant by the Long Island Community Foundation and the Board of the All For the East End Fund.

The grant provides funding for financial literacy tools and education to domestic violence victims.


“The Retreat is grateful to the Board of All For the East End for their efforts to support local nonprofits,” said Loretta K. Davis, Executive Director of The Retreat, in a press release.  “We are proud of the work we do in the community helping survivors of domestic violence transition from crisis to self-sufficiency.”


The Long Island Community Foundation granted $50,000 to charities in Riverhead, Shelter Island, Southampton, Southold and East Hampton. Money awarded to The Retreat is among a second round of awards comprising the Building Stronger Neighborhood Program, which aims to enhance the lives of those living on the East end of Long Island.


“AFTEE’s Building Stronger Neighborhood Program provides an important mechanism for sharing knowledge and resources and creates the possibilities for positive change in these underserved communities,” said Laura Anker, AFTEE Advisory Committee Member and Distinguished Service Professor at SUNY Old Westbury.
