Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP has pledged $50,000 to financially support the mission, work, and programs of The Energeia Partnership and its efforts on behalf of Long Island. Joe Campolo, CMM Managing Partner, recognized business leader, and a member of the Energeia Class of 2016, has also been elected to Energeia’s prestigious Board of Advisors.

Energeia, which derives its name from a Greek word used to describe the demonstration of inner character in deeds, brings together a diverse group of ethical leaders from Long Island’s public, private, and nonprofit sectors to help address the region’s most complex issues including education, poverty, land use, energy, transportation, and healthcare. Energeia’s mission fits seamlessly into CMM and Campolo’s efforts to improve the quality of life for all Long Islanders and bolster the economy.

“We are very grateful to Campolo Middleton & McCormick’s Joe Campolo for believing in our mission to serve as stewards of positive change here on Long Island,” said Executive Director Paul J. Tonna. “Support from generous donors like CMM is essential to achieving our goal of promoting and enhancing life on Long Island, and ensuring the long-term sustainability of The Energeia Partnership.”

Campolo has spearheaded some of the most important initiatives in recent years to grow the Long Island economy. In addition to CMM’s support of The Energeia Partnership, Campolo is the driving force behind projects that attract public and private dollars to support economic engines on Long Island, including the Hauppauge Industrial Park, and has facilitated partnerships among the region’s power players to boost the economy and promote innovation. The firm also provides philanthropic and pro bono support to many national and local nonprofit organizations.

Campolo explained that his personal experience with Energeia was eye-opening, vastly improving his perspective on key issues. “Energeia is a terrific path to help Long Island leaders become more thoughtful about different perspectives before making decisions that impact people and society at large,” he said.  “I am proud to support Energeia’s incredibly important work.”
