Holstein Family Fund for Citizen Engagement

Charlotte (Chuckie) and Alex Holstein, long-time community leaders, advocates and models for civic engagement, established this permanent fund to support civic trusteeship in perpetuity. Before Alex’s passing in 2020, the couple shared the belief that the place where we live has only been loaned to us by past generations to hold in trust for present and future generations. The fund will support the development of individual, organizational, and community capacity to encourage civic trusteeship that promotes a sustainable community. The fund memorializes many members of the Holstein family who were recognized for civic engagement in the founding of the CNY Community Foundation, Community Chest (United Way), and served as leaders of Temple Concord, Community Nursery School at Pioneer Homes, Syracuse Housing Authority, Hotel Syracuse, Corinthian Club, and CNY Jewish Federation.
