For those who attended the Community Foundation of Otsego County’s Nonprofit Breakfast on May 22 (and for those who didn’t), CFOC has partnered with the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties to have Otsego County Nonprofits participate in Mohawk Valley Gives on September 20, the 24-hour community-wide giving day to benefit nonprofit organizations serving the Mohawk Valley.

Registration is easy and free. There’s no downside to participating. Once you register, you’ll see that your submission is being reviewed and you’ll be notified about approval. Once approval takes place, you can build your page.

I’ve attached the very informative slide show presentation from yesterday’s breakfast.

In 2022, Mohawk Valley Gives raised over $630,000 in 24 hours and 100% of participating organizations received a donation. The Community Foundation of Otsego County is so excited to work with Otsego nonprofits, businesses, donors, board members, and community residents to make our first-year participation a success. Spread the word!
