The Long Island Volunteer Hall of Fame honors founders of nonprofit agencies on Long Island, and Lifetime Achievers in Volunteerism. Each year a representative panel of independent volunteer judges is recruited to review the nominations and select founder honorees in various categories of service to the community. In addition, an individual is also chosen by the Association of Professional Volunteer Administrators (APVA) to receive the “Lifetime Achievement Award in Volunteerism” for his/her work in advancing volunteerism and service.
All nominees are designated in one category and identified as such when inducted into the Long Island Volunteer Hall of Fame.
Nomination forms are available every spring. A formal Induction Ceremony is held in the winter, typically in early February, at the Carlyle on the Green at Bethpage State Park, the official home of the Long Island Volunteer Hall of Fame.
