Long Island ABATE is a very active non-profit, 501(c)3 located on Long Island that helps to promote Bike Safety, lobby for motorcyclist's rights, and raise money for local Veteran Organizations.

Long Island ABATE has no management costs. All of our members, including our officers are purely volunteer and do not take any compensation or salary for the work they do.

Every dime we raise goes to support our mission, or in cases where we raise money for veterans, we donate every penny we raise directly to those organizations. Long Island ABATE does not take any percentage of that money raised for its own purposes.
