PULASKI – The Greater Pulaski Community Endowment Fund will launch its annual fundraising campaign this fall with a goal of reaching and surpassing $15,000 in donations to be matched by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust.
The Trust pledged to provide a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $15,000, of contributions received on or before December 15, 2015.
This yields a potential for $30,000 of growth in a permanent endowment that solely supports local projects.
Last year, individual contributions to the fund totaled $16,395.
This year’s fall fundraising campaign seeks to meet the full $15,000 challenge to continue growth of the fund and compound charitable dollars available to the community.
The Pulaski Fund supports town improvement programs and projects operated by nonprofit organizations in the village of Pulaski and the town of Richland.
Organizations such as the Pulaski Area Little League, the Pulaski Historical Society, and United Friends of Homeless Animals were all supported by grants from the fund.
Since its inception, the fund has supported arts and culture, community development, education, environment, health, and human services programming in the Pulaski region with nearly $270,000 in grants.
To support the fund’s growth and help the committee reach its matching grant goal, taxdeductible contributions can be sent to Greater Pulaski Community Endowment Fund, c/o Central New York Community Foundation, 431 East Fayette Street, Suite 100, Syracuse, NY 13202 or you may donate securely online at www.cnycf.org/pulaski.
