Our Projects

Giving is a personal matter. You need to give where your heart is, to those who matter most to you. By including the Cortland Community Foundation in your donations, you will be sure that your gifts will benefit local, well deserving not-for-profit organizations.

Also, we have Donor Advised Accounts that let you indicate more specifically where you want your contributions to go to help out.

Please browse our web site, see how the Cortland Community Foundation can help you help others. Then call or e-mail us for a confidential discussion of your plans and ideas.

The Cortland Community Foundation has allocated over $1,000,000 to more than 65 different local agencies since its inception. If you would like to make a difference in YOUR community, contact us today!
