Amos Family Foundation

The Amos Family carries a long history in Central New York. Owners of flour mills and a brick factory in the late-1800s, the family built the now Nationally Historic Amos Building, which sits on Water Street in downtown Syracuse. In addition, one family member — Jacob Amos — served as Mayor of Syracuse in 1892. Family members converted the Amos Foundation to this fund to simplify their giving and perpetually continue their family’s support of the region in honor of its Central New York heritage.
