No need to respond to my earlier posting, as I was able to access a
list of ALL the registered non-profits in New York State, and select
those in Long Island and Queens.
The list includes name and address information, along with the EIN
number (used for IRS reporting). It does not include any size
information, like employees or budget.
However, there are additional sources of information that can most
likely create such lists, and I've included contact information for
these groups, below.
I trust this information fully answers your question.
However, please don't rate this answer until you have everything you
need. If you would like any additional information, just post a
Request for Clarification to let me know how I can assist you further,
and I'm at your service.
All the best,
The list of 6,638 non-profits in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens is here,
as a spreadsheet file:
Please save this file to your local system, as the above link is not permanent.
The file was created from the records of the NYS Attorney General's
office, Charities Bureau. You can access the full list (for all of
Despite its name, it includes non-profits that are not usually thought
of as "charities".
The Charities Bureau *may* be able to provide a list that contains
fuller information, especially budget information. You can contact
to request additional information.
There are two services available that have comprehensive listings of
non-profits, and who can probably custom-tailor databases with
organization information, budget information, names of executives, and
The two groups are Guidestar and the Economic Research Institute:
Guidestar's main page is here:
Connecting people with nonprofit information
and their information on purchasing custom-tailored data sets is here:
Custom Data Services
ERI's page is here:
Public Domain Tax-Exempt Source Data
and their contact information is:
Tel: 800.627.3697 | 425.556.0205
Fax: 800.753.4415 | 425.885.5091
Although ERI clearly has the capability to create a list of
non-profits in LI, it wasn't entirely clear to me whether they make
such a service routinely available on a fee basis. Your best bet
would be to contact them directly and let them know what you need.
Again, if there's anything else I can do for you on this one, just let me know.

Thanks for getting back to me.
I hope you've had a chance to contact Guidestar, through the
information I provided earlier, as I still feel they are the best
source for creating a custom-tailored list with exactly the
information you're seeking.
In the mean time, though, I've gone back to the original list I
provided and sorted out 142 organizations in LI and Queens that have a
primary focus of health care services.
You can download the new list here:
and again, this is a temporary link, so please save this file to your
Although these are not all organizations with a focus on
rehabilitation services for the disabled, it's certainly a
small-enough list that you can begin pulling together more detailed
information on the organizations of specific interest to you.
I trust the combination of the information in this new list, along
with the services available through Guidestar, will fully meet your
original request: assistance in locating the list you need.
However, if there's anything else I can do for you, just give me a holler!
All the best,
