Community Foundation Ribbon Cutting Event and Milestone Celebration

Montgomery, NY – The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan will be holding a Ribbon Cutting event on Thursday, August 14, 2014 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to commemorate its recent office move. The Community Foundation is still located in the Orange County Chamber of Commerce Business Center at 30 Scott’s Corners Drive in Montgomery, NY, but is now located in a larger suite, Suite 203. Light refreshments will be available. RSVP by August 11 to


The Community Foundation is currently celebrating its 15th year of charitable leadership and philanthropy in connecting people who care with causes that matter. The generosity of those who have given through and to the Community Foundation in its 15 year history has resulted in over $12.2 million of charitable community assets. Moving to a larger suite was necessary to accommodate the growing demand for the Community Foundation’s services in the region.


The Community Foundation administers these assets across more than 180 charitable funds that benefit Orange, Sullivan and more. Begun in 1999, the Foundation is an effective steward of the community’s charitable resources and a leader in the administration of scholarships, and grant making for the benefit of nonprofit organizations in Orange and Sullivan Counties, and beyond. The Foundation has significantly increased local charitable funds and empowered donors to make a profound difference in the quality of life in our region. To date, the Community Foundation has distributed over $7 million in grants and scholarships in our communities through funds set up by individuals, businesses and organizations.


“Celebrating the Community Foundation’s 15th anniversary is a tremendous milestone. We are looking forward to continued growth of the Community Foundation and sharing news of others who will step forward to make a positive difference in our world.” said Karen VanHouten Minogue, President and CEO. The Community Foundation exists not to support a single organization, but to address the broadest range of charitable issues by building an endowment that serves as a perpetual source of community capital.
