Your planned gift to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan will have meaning and impact for years to come. We honor those who have made a lasting commitment to our community by choosing to support the charitable goals of the Foundation through planned giving.

Those who remember the foundation through a will, trust, designation or other planned gift, are invited to join in the community foundation’s Greenleaf Legacy Society*, recognizing this special form of lasting philanthropy.

Involvement in the Greenleaf Legacy Society gives you the opportunity to enjoy the company of others who, like yourself, care about leaving a legacy to protect and strengthen this community. Members are recognized in community foundation publications and at events such as our Annual Reception and other exclusive events for legacy members.

You may always choose to remain anonymous in your philanthropy with the Community Foundation. However, participation in the Greenleaf Legacy Society can be an inspirational experience, and may encourage others to look toward the future and how they too may have an enduring impact on the causes they care about.

How does the Legacy Society work?

  • Establish – Donors can include a gift to the Community Foundation in their estate plans.
  • Notify – Donors notify the Community Foundation of their plans and automatically become members of the Legacy Society.
  • Join – Donors join the network of other Legacy Society members and receive special recognition.

*The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan was two years old when it received its first major donation – a planned gift from the estate of Oscar B. Greenleaf in 2002. Mr. Greenleaf was an ordinary person with extraordinary goals: to live life to the fullest, and to give so that others could learn. His goodwill lives on forever because of his gift to the Community Foundation. To honor that caring legacy, the Community Foundation created the Greenleaf Legacy Society which recognizes those donors who have included the Community Foundation in their estate plans or have created a life income gift to the Foundation. In good times and bad, these gifts will continue to benefit the community in perpetuity.

Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan is not engaged in rendering legal, financial, or tax advice. Information in our publications and on our website is provided as a service to provide general information about charitable giving. Please consult your financial or legal advisor.

About the Friends of the Orange County Youth Bureau Fund: The fund was created to enhance existing and/or provide additional services that are not currently in the Youth Bureau’s operating budget. This fund will be utilized for special projects (i.e. youth scholarships, skill building opportunities for children, youth, young adults, and families). Orange County Youth Bureau’s Mission: To promote positive youth development through County-wide integrated planning, funding, monitoring, coordinating and developing youth and family services programs for Orange County youth ages 0-21. Promoting Positive Youth Development since. 1978! Donations are fully tax-deductible charitable contributions and should be made payable to CFOS-Friends of the Orange County Youth Bureau Fund. 

 

About the Child Care Council of Orange County: Organized as a Non-Profit Corporation in 1971. The Council was organized to coordinate, assist and promote day care services in Orange County. Original funding came from RECAP (Regional Economic Community Action Program) and services were referrals to parents and training of child care center staff. In l978 reduced funding to RECAP caused us to lose their funding. Via a group of center directors, they tried working with parents needing child care and to hold trainings at each other’s site to maintain staff development for about five years. Through the 1980’s they accessed funding of discretionary funds from one of our Assemblywomen and hired a director to continue parent referrals, were a resource for Work Family Directions parent referrals, became a sponsor of CACFP (Child Adult Care Food Program) and hired another staff person. About then the County started to certify Family Day Care Providers and they were given funding to train providers. With the 1990’s they became stronger, hired additional staff and were awarded the CCR&R (Child Care Resource and Referral) contract from NYS DSS (Department of Social Services) and in about 1994 were given the Registrar contract by Orange County. Today they continue all of the above services under contracts from NYS OCFS (Office of Children and Family Services – www.ocfs.state.ny.org) , USDA NYS DOH CACFP (United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Health – www.fns.usda.gov), Orange County DSS (Department of Social Services), and Professional Development Program (http://www.ecetp.pdp.albany.edu/). They charge minimal fees for enhanced training, work with providers on CDA (Child Development Associate credential – www.cdacouncil.org) and SACC (Afterschool Works NY credential –www.afterschoolwksny.org), and for program accreditation (refer to child care professionals on our website).
