This month, Cornell Cooperative Extensions (CCE) from across the Hudson Valley are kicking-off the 2020 #CCEResponds Year-End Campaign to help raise awareness and critical funds for our county organizations. For more than 100 years, Cornell Cooperative Extension has worked side by side with our neighbors all across New York. Sharing research-backed solutions from Cornell University, we help New Yorkers grow healthy food and thriving businesses, empower our youth, strengthen families and communities, and make our environment more sustainable for current and future generations.
Today, all of New York is being tested like never before. However, Cornell and CCE’s resolve has never been stronger. Across the state, our people are answering the call. Finding new ways to work and new ways to connect. Please join CCE Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, Putnam, Sullivan, and Rockland Counties in our #CCEResponds Year-End Campaign to raise awareness of and crucial funds for our county offices. Donations can be made on Giving Tuesday (Dec. 1) or any time before the end of the year by visiting your county Extension’s website.
To make a donation in Orange County visit http://cceorangecounty.org/education-center-and-4-h-park/-cceresponds-2020-year-end-campaign. CCE Orange is 30% funded through grants and contracts. We host multiple fundraising events throughout the year to raise funds to help with the cost of programming and to continue building our Education Center and 4-H Park. This year, we have been forced to cancel most of these events. Please join us for this one-day campaign and support our programs who rely on these funds, especially in times like now. Our goal is to raise $10,000 before the end of the year.
About Cornell Cooperative Extension
Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) is a dynamic education system connecting Cornell’s world-class research with regional and county-based educators and partners across the state. With a presence in every county and all five boroughs of New York City, CCE is uniquely positioned to tailor opportunities and resources to match the diverse and ever-evolving needs of individual communities across the state.
CCE partners with local, state, and federal government agencies, and is supported by the national land grant system and Cornell University. In fulfillment of Cornell’s land grant mission, faculty, and staff –primarily from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Human Ecology — collaborate with extension associates, agriculture specialists, CCE educators and staff, local partners, and volunteers across New York state to engage citizens and empower communities to transform and grow from the group up. The resulting education system is responsive, nimble, research-based, and locally-rooted. Extension educators develop programming that collects information and experience from their own communities to inform Cornell research and program development. Such a dynamic organization would not be possible without the dedicated staff, volunteers, and partnerships that power the CCE system.
