Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum Creates Endowment Fund at Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan

Fund will support education programming, capital improvements, and technology upgrades

MONTGOMERY, N.Y. (June 21, 2022) – The Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum (CFFCM) has created a permanently endowed fund at the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS) to support the organization’s future needs.

“The Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum is a gem in the region, and the Community Foundation is beyond pleased to be entrusted with an endowment fund that will support this beloved destination for generations to come” said Nicole Feller Lee, CFOS Director of Development and Communications.

The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to

preserving the heritage of fly fishing in the Catskills and educating the next generation of

anglers and conservationists. Distributions from the fund will enhance education programming,

and support capital improvements, infrastructure needs, and technology upgrades.

“The CFFCM is honored to establish this fund with CFOS,” said Anthony J. Magardino, CFFCM Board President. “It offers a new way for our members to invest in future generations’ abilities to carry out our mission and expand our programs and outreach in youth education.”

Situated on the banks of the Willowemoc in Livingston Manor, the birthplace of American dry fly fishing, the multifaceted museum and 50 acres of grounds provide a vibrant cultural hub with a global reach.

“The CFFCM is a place for the luminaries of fly fishing to engage anglers and naturalists of all ages and levels of experience, to enrich the future of fly fishing, and to ensure the sustainability of the delicate ecosystem on which it depends,” said Jill Borenstein, CFFCM Program and Development Director.
