The Long Island Volunteer Hall of Fame was founded shortly after the United Nation’s International Year of Volunteers 2001. A coalition of local persons and agencies came together to commemorate volunteerism on Long Island as part of this international effort.
After working together as a coalition, the organizing agencies decided to establish the Volunteer Hall of Fame to honor individuals who founded the many nonprofit organizations found on Long Island. These organizations continue to advance the vision and causes advocated by their founders. We celebrate their humanitarian spirit and promote volunteerism on Long Island.
With the help of our independent panel of volunteer judges new honorees have been inducted annually since 2002. In this website you will find a list of our Inductees with links to their organizations, information about how to nominate someone and how to support our effort.
