James Moss

James Moss

established in honor of Jim Moss, publisher of the Times Herald-Record from 1996 to 2006.  Jim was a man who also devoted much of his life to bettering the community the newspaper served.  Although he was a newspaper man to the core, Jim also worked tirelessly for causes such as the United Way, the Orange County Partnership, as a founding board member of the Community Foundation, and most recently as chairman of the board of Safe Harbors. He led the newspaper during a time of transition from print to digital media. Most notably, he was one of the first African-American publishers of a daily newspaper in the country, and was the first black president and publisher of the Times Herald-Record. Newspapers were Jim’s passion, his life and his legacy. He retired from the Times Herald-Record in 2006.




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 190 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.

Nonprofit Leadership Summit @ Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
Mar 4 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

This year’s theme, Working Together for Healthier Communities and Improved Quality of Life is in collaboration with Marist College’s Dept. of Public and Nonprofit Administration and NYCON, bringing together healthcare providers with the region’s diverse nonprofit organizations and businesses, all of which stand to benefit from working together.

The annual Nonprofit Leadership Summit has repeatedly sold out, serving the region’s diverse needs in human services, arts and culture, education, healthcare, agriculture and the environment.  Nonprofit professionals and volunteers learn from and exchange ideas with civic, business and philanthropic leaders from across the state.  We support the region’s nonprofit community with professional development, for- and nonprofit business-to-business networking, and tools for both identifying new resources and pooling existing ones, all of which facilitates collaborations for greater effectiveness and impact.

Please join us for a day of learning, professional development and camaraderie, creating a greater voice for regional nonprofits and contributing to the growth, sustainability and vibrancy of our communities. Tickets are limited for this event, so please reserve your ticket today!
