Nonprofit Information from Connecting through Philanthropy January Program

Saturday, January 19, 2019 5:16 PM | Anne Notarthomas (Administrator)

Sharon Owens, Deputy Mayor of the City of Syracuse, speaking to WBOC about the importance of Nonprofits in Syracuse

Our January 2019 Program, Connecting through Philanthropy, received an overwhelmingly positive response from our membership. WBOC is a volunteer organization and we depend on our membership’s generous spirits. Each one of you brings something special to the organization with your time, talent, and treasure.

There was lots of positive energy in the room and we are grateful to everyone who attended. Many of you asked for the contact information for the Non-Profit Organizations that were present at the January program. We are happy to share that with you below. It is humbling to know how many of our members actively work to make the world a better place.

This list is a work in progress. We thank you for your patience as we wait to hear back from a few of our Non-Profit friends. We will send out an email when the list is complete.
