The Community Foundation begins 15th year of Charitable Leadership in 2014!


For over 15 years, the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan has been increasing the philanthropic capital of our region with the creation of over 170 funds that will provide grants and scholarships for ever!

Military Appreciation Day Fund

Created by concerned citizens as a vehicle to which the wider community may contribute. The Fund will provide support for “Military Appreciation Day,” a community-wide day of complimentary activities, food, music and fun for local military personnel and their families.



Firefighters Burn Treatment Fund Inc. of Orange Ulster and Sullivan Establishes Fund…

The Firefighters Burn Fund has been established within the Community Foundation to support educational and burn prevention programming in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, and Sullivan County (including equipment, supplies, and specialized training of burn care personnel within the four county region).  



What Is The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan?

It’s really quite simple: We facilitate and manage ENDOWMENT FUNDS that grow and benefit our community…forever.

The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan is a public charity unlike any other in our area.  It was created by and for the people of Orange County and serves the county and beyond.  We exist not to support a single organization, but to address the broadest range of charitable issues by building an endowment that serves as a perpetual source of community capital.

We connect people who care with causes that matter and we serve people of all means.

To donors, CFOS represents an effective and innovative giving vehicle, one that combines maximum tax savings with maximum flexibility and the opportunity to make a difference right here at home in and around Orange County… and beyond.

To other charitable organizations, CFOS represents the source of grants whose sole purpose is to improve the quality of life in our region.

Perhaps most important of all, CFOS is the link between donors and other charitable organizations, and between donors and those students who receive grants from scholarship funds which are established through the Foundation.

CFOS currently manages more than 170 permanent charitable funds for individuals, families, businesses, and organizations that turn to us to help fulfill their charitable dreams.  And this number of funds continues to grow as more people like you feel compelled to step forward as generous participants in the vision of a stronger community.
