When my clients ask how they can accomplish their charitable objectives, I often introduce them to the Community Foundation. Over its 90-year history, it has successfully carried out its mission to improve the quality of life for the residents of Central New York.

The Foundation’s staff is skilled at matching donors’ charitable interests with the critical and long-term needs of our community. The Foundation is also adept at sharing its experience, leadership and resources to help jumpstart community initiatives for the advancement of many fields of interest. Donors can realize tax savings while taking advantage of the Foundation’s national investment consultant to grow their philanthropic investment.

I want Central New York to be a place where everyone can realize their personal dreams. For that to be achieved, our local charitable organizations need the necessary resources to accomplish their goals. A financially strong and proactive Community Foundation is the cornerstone of a progressive, caring community. The Community Foundation will continue to benefit generations of Central New Yorkers who live in this beautiful region we proudly call home.
