Hagedorn Foundation

Families, Children and Youth


The Hagedorn Foundation (HF) is guided by the belief that all children deserve a happy, healthy and safe start to life. The Foundation considers parents and supportive communities to be essential players in the successful start of a young person's life and transition into adulthood. HF supports parents, community leaders, business leaders and policy-makers who protect and advocate on behalf of the well-being of children and youth. The Foundation supports projects and initiatives that improve early care and education, strengthen families and supportive communities and/or build public and political will to achieve these goals. Special attention will be paid to projects and initiatives that work in all three areas.

HF's primary focus is funding on Long Island. On a state and national level, we support research, policy work and related initiatives that directly benefit Long Islanders.
