Our Founders

“You can’t sit back. You have to go forward.”
—Thomas Elmezzi

Tom and Jeanne Elmezzi had a special place in their hearts for Long Island City and Astoria, and they strongly believed in the importance of education, good healthcare and providing opportunities to those who can use them to thrive.

The foundation is a legacy and a continuation of Tom and Jeanne’s lifetime commitment to helping people.
