The Andy Foundation was formed in 2004 to honor the memory of Andrew Patrick Palmeri. Andy's family, young friends and their parents came together with the mission of helping less fortunate children.

A "by kids-for kids" 501(c) 3 charity, The Andy Foundation raises funds through grass roots events like tag sales, football clinics and bingo parties. Grants, donations, and hands on assistance are given to worthwhile, child-based organizations.

Who we've helped:


Activities for Children with Special Needs

Recently The Andy Foundation ( was happy to donate supplies and fund two scholarships to Sparkidz a nonprofit located in NYC.

Pal-O-Mine Equestrian

Equine Therapy Programs

An enthusiastic group of children watched recently as Jill Palmeri, on behalf of the Andy Foundation, issued a check to Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Executive Director Lisa Gatti.

The Andy Foundation executive and junior committee selected the Pal-O-Mine equestrian facility to be the recipient of its first donation because it is dedicated to teaching horseback riding to disabled individuals, many of whom are children.

The Foundation's donation enabled Pal-O-Mine, a non-profit organization that relies largely on volunteers, to purchase two horses, Sonny and Diva, as well as help feed and board them. The addition of the two new horses will also allow the program to accommodate 30 additional children with disabilities. The Andy Foundation is dedicated to achieving lasting improvement in the lives of children less fortunate than others.

If you would like to meet Sonny or Diva or learn more about the remarkable therapeutic horseback riding program Pal-O-Mine Equestrian, log onto or call 631-348-1289.


Safe Horizons

"moving victims of violence from crisis to confidence"

Over the past few months, The Andy Foundation has been working with Safe Horizons, a provider of safe havens for battered women and children. The kids at the Andy Foundation through various fund raising efforts purchased furniture and equipment for Safe Horizon's Lilly House Childcare Room and After-School Room. We also conducted a toy drive collecting more than 100 toys which will be delivered to the house.
