Who was Conor Long?

Conor Long was a young man from Boston, N.Y. who lost his life in July 2018 in a hiking accident 10 days after his 20th birthday. While Conor’s life was short, the impact he made on people’s lives in the Hamburg community was extensive.


First and foremost, Conor was kind. He was always the first to help a student in need, a child with a disability or a neighbor in need of a hand. Conor also initiated many programs that showed students the positive impact they could have on their community

Our  2020 Scholarship Winners

The Conor J. Long Foundation surprised our scholarship winners with a Zoom call to let them know that they won one of our $1,000 scholarships. The students were told that the interview was for "follow up questioning" before any final decisions were made. Check out some of their reactions from the Zoom call! 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Related Updates

Updated May 29th, 2020


Since the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) a global pandemic, communities nationwide have implemented many changes in response. At The Conor J. Long Foundation, we are watching the developments daily and are firm in that we will comply with any directive issued by an authoritative agency that affects our planned events.  

  • We recently met our goal providing Meals for Healthcare Heroes, a program to deliver ready-to-eat meals to those on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.

  • In accordance with the decision to close schools in Erie County until April 20, 2020, our Wednesday morning yoga program is suspended until further notice. 


  • As of March 29, Spring Clean Up (May 16th  & May 17th) has been postponed until the Fall. We will post information when a new date has been selected. 

  • We will continue to provide updates via social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) as necessary.

  • Kindness matters, always and especially now.  Remember those who may need a hand so that they can avoid exposure; perhaps there’s a way you can help.  At this time, we continue to urge our friends to #BeLikeConor.

  • If you have any questions or concerns regarding our planned events please contact us at info@conorjlongfoundation.org
