The Greater Pulaski Community Endowment Fund is a geographically-specific fund administered by the Central New York Community Foundation. This philanthropic initiative serves as a collection of gifts from many donors who are committed to preserving and enhancing the quality of life for residents of Pulaski and the Town of Richland through a permanent charitable endowment. Grants are awarded annually to aid vital programs in the fields of arts & culture, environment & animals, education, human services, health and civic affairs.

Established in 1991 with seed funding from the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust and sustained through critical matching challenge grants, our endowment exists to ensure that the residents of the Pulaski area have a means of supporting the nonprofit services and resources that are so important to the vitality of a community.

The Greater Pulaski Community Endowment Fund is the union of many gifts, big and small, by those who want to give back to their community. Tax-deductible gifts may be made in various ways. You may contribute online with a credit card or checks, made out to Central New York Community Foundation with “Greater Pulaski Community Endowment Fund” written in the memo line, may be sent to: Central New York Community Foundation, 431 East Fayette Street, Suite 100, Syracuse, NY 13202.
