Mission

To strengthen Greene County by building charitable endowments, maximizing benefits to donors, making effective grants and providing leadership to address community needs

Most Meaningful Change

We convened a group of interested individuals, organizations and businesses to address issues of food insecurity in our county. The Greene County Food Security Partnership-consisting of two to three dozen active participants representing public schools, food service programs, health/human service nonprofits, food banks, businesses and individuals-has helped to increase the number of children receiving supplemental food assistance through Summer Food Programs (from none in 2009 to more than 1,000 in 2013); established Weekend Food Programs for hungry schoolchildren in four of five school districts, providing packs of food for 120 children each weekend during the school year; increased awareness of public and private food resources though volunteer outreach; and is developing a pilot initiative for food box delivery for home-bound senior citizens. The foundation acts as a fiscal sponsor to receive contributions to support these initiatives.
