“If you are one of those who have ways of helping people, it behooves you to do so, in my opinion.”
—Thomas Elmezzi

The Thomas and Jeanne Elmezzi Private Foundation is guided by the core proposition of the American Dream — that anyone, given the right tools and support, can live up to their potential and succeed. It is a legacy established by Thomas and Jeanne Elmezzi that honors their vision of providing opportunities through education, youth development, medical research and support for the elderly, with an emphasis on individuals and families in the Long Island City/Astoria area.
