Pink Aid grants are awarded to recipients whose goals best advance Pink Aid’s Mission. Pink Aid currently has two chapters: our original chapter in Westport, Connecticut, serving the state of Connecticut and our newest chapter in Huntington, New York, serving all of Long Island.
All funds raised in Connecticut are used exclusively to benefit residents of the State. Likewise, all funds raised in Long Island are granted exclusively to benefit its residents. Pink Aid CT and Pink Aid LI each have separate grants committees, but both chapters are served by a main office in Westport, CT.
