Community Foundation Awarded Nonprofit of the Year Award

We were recently honored with Centerstate CEO's Nonprofit of the Year Award.

We are humbled to be the recipient of this year’s Nonprofit of the Year Award from CenterState CEO, but this honor really belongs to our entire community. The positive impact of our work over the past year would not have been possible without the extraordinary generosity of our partners and all of the Central New Yorkers who saw the need our local residents were experiencing during a tumultuous 2020 and stepped in to help. Thank you for trusting in us to be your partner in philanthropy.
