We need your help! The Long Island Metro Lacrosse Foundation (LIMLF) is a non-profit with all volunteer members.  For decades the Long Island Metropolitan Lacrosse Foundation has tirelessly served the New York Metropolitan Lacrosse community in every conceivable capacity to maintain and safeguard its cherished traditions. The laundry list of programs and accomplishments is too extensive and textured to acknowledge and too important to prioritize. Unfortunately, only one opponent had the audacity to challenge the supremacy of its purpose…a pandemic.  Never a greedy moneymaker, our sole objective was to promote and support the many outlets that encourage and maintain ALL of the layers that contribute to the fastest sport on two feet! And never a quitter, we’re exploring ways to benefit those endeavors that rely on us.

Can you help?  As you can imagine a lot of our events in the past 18 months have been postponed and/or cancelled and we would really appreciate your help. Any donation towards our goals would be essential to the continuation of the only support supplied to most of our programs. It would be extremely difficult to imagine the backbone of our Lacrosse Community without a LONG ISLAND METROPOLITAN LACROSSE safety net to protect our beloved game.

What is the money used for?We help improve, promote, and grow the sport of lacrosse. Some of our accomplishments include but are not limited to monetary and equipment donations to underprivileged youth programs through our BRIDGE program (Building Relationships to Diversity, Growth, and Enrichment), awards, recognitions, and scholarships to high school boys and girls’ players.
