Steuben County Community Foundation has served as a community leader and champion for improving quality of life since 1991. We are committed to providing grant funds for exciting projects, sustaining support for essential services, awarding scholarships for students to receive higher education, and connecting donors who care with causes that matter to them.
Earlier this year we shared a quick snapshot of our 2017-2018 fiscal year. However, we know numbers don’t paint the full picture of the generosity of Steuben County. Please enjoy reading our 2018 Annual Report, filled with stories of SCCF donors, the grants they have supported, as well as community projects and scholarships awarded through the Community Foundation. We kept the report focused on telling these stories, but you can see the full list of 2018 donors, grants, committee volunteers, and funds on our website at steubenfoundation.org/2018.
Total Assets: $28,463,118 ● 2018 Investment Return: 8.46% ● Gifts Received in 2018: $2,252,400 ● 257 Donors ● 464 Grants Totaling $2.02 Million
This year, Steuben County Community Foundation worked with local nonprofit organizations serving Steuben County to create a community-wide Nonprofit Wish List. The goal for this list is to connect nonprofit organizations and the donors in our community who may be looking for an opportunity to give during the holidays. The list, which now consists of 23 nonproft organizations, includes monetary needs at $10, $100, and $1000 increments as well as collaboration needs. Whether you have construction experience or an understanding of finance, your skills and gifts are welcome additions for many nonprofits on this list. SCCF will continue promoting the wish list until the end of the year.
Bridget Harrison became the first staff hire of Clear Lake Township Land Conservancy in 2015, and she has been busy working with their active board and volunteers since then. The mission of CLTLC is to preserve and protect the natural environment of Clear Lake Township through three service areas: environmental education programs, natural area preservation, and annual testing for water quality. “CLTLC has existed for 27 years, so we’ve had success and challenges,” explained Bridget. “It’s a humbling experience to work with so many people who really show up for these projects.”
