Nonprofits play a large role

To the Editor:

The Adirondack region’s nonprofit organizations deliver services that help make this region the vibrant place that it is, and they play a critical role in supporting a healthy, diverse economy.

For most of our history, Adirondack Foundation has been holding seminars to help our nonprofits strengthen leadership, seize opportunities, and overcome the many challenges they face. On May 9, Adirondack Foundation and the Essex Community Fund teamed up to host a seminar, “Nonprofit Marketing on a Tight Budget & Building a Board That Works,” at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall.

Led by Andy Robinson, a nationally-recognized nonprofit trainer, the seminar’s 40-plus participants received valuable marketing advice and learned how to build a more productive and engaged board. Adirondack Foundation thanks the nonprofit organizations that attended the seminar—your participation reinforces our belief that nonprofits across the region benefit from this type of capacity building.

Special thanks go to our co-host, the Essex Community Fund; our friends at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall, who provided a perfect setting; and Susan Smith of Flying Pancakes Catering.

We also thank the volunteer board members who participated—you help give our nonprofits structure, identify and momentum, and your contribution is, in many ways, priceless.
