The Fund's Mission

The GLADIATOR FUND was incorporated in the state of New York in October of 1989.  It is a non-profit charitable tax exempt 501 (c) (3) organization as prescribed by law.  We have a Federal Tax Identification Number and a state tax-exempt number.

 

The FUND was established to help raise money for children in the community of New Hyde Park, who have been afflicted with a catastrophic illness, disease, disability or handicap.

 

The Gladiator Fund is now able to assist adults in our community who meet the same criteria we established for our children (those who have been afflicted with a catastrophic illness, disease, disability or handicap).

 

In our history, the FUND has helped more than twenty five children with various disabilities (Autism, Leukemia, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and Mental Retardation).  The FUND raises money by organizing our Annual Dinner Dance in the spring and a Golf Tournament in the summer.

 

We accept gifts and donations to be raffled and auctioned off at these events.

 

At this time we are asking for your generosity which will enable us to continue to help these afflicted children.

 

Please join us in bringing a little joy into their lives.

Gratefully,
Dan Connor

President & CEO
