The Northern New York Community Foundation -

Working with donors to benefit the community through grants and scholarships since 1929

The Northern New York Community Foundation raises, manages and administers an endowment and collection of funds for the benefit of the community. We use our earnings to support a program of college scholarships for area residents and grants to non-profit organizations to improve our community’s quality of life.

Since 1929, we have helped make good things happen in northern New York. We serve as a resource for local charitable organizations, donors, professional advisors and non-profit organizations.

Through the generosity of many donors, we have been able to invest in a permanent endowment now valued at over $40 million, and have awarded more than this amount in grants and scholarships.

The Foundation’s role in the community goes beyond grants and scholarships. We bring people together to discuss local community problems and work to find creative solutions. And, we work to help donors achieve their charitable objectives now and for generations to come.

Since 1957, the Northern New York Community Foundation has been a member of the Council on Foundations, a national membership organization that serves the public good by promoting and enhancing responsible and effective philanthropy. More information is available at their web site, www.cof.org.

Donors who establish funds within the Foundation receive professional administration, significant tax savings, and the opportunity and satisfaction of broadly benefiting our community now and in the future.

 

DYK William P. Herring

Born in Rodman in 1844, William P Herring went on to make his mark as a successful businessman in Northern New York.  His will called for the establishment of a college in Watertown.  Lacking sufficient funds for an actual college, the courts decided to establish the Herring College Trust, the income from which is given to the Foundation.  Each year the Foundation awards Herring Scholarships to students studying engineering, mathematics and related fields.
 
William Herring cared deeply for his community...You too can count on the Northern New York Community Foundation to turn caring into commitment.  We make it easy to be a philanthropist now and for generations to come. Please contact us for more information on how you can start a fund at the Foundation.
