The writing is on the wall… YOU are amazing!

By participating in one of the biggest giving events in Cortland County, YOU helped your YWCA win a $10,000 prize and made your donation count more! The Cortland Community Foundation’s National Philanthropy Day contest raised over $500,000 for 43 local nonprofits, and the Foundation awarded $30,000 in prize money. 

Your support for Philanthropy Day allows girls in our community to create empowering art projects like the YWCA Lobby Mural.

“Every year, we are always incredibly moved by seeing the support of the community,” said YWCA Cortland Executive Director Kelly Tobin. “The work that we do is very fulfilling, it’s not always easy, and it takes incredible resources to be able to have the impact we do in the community.”

Thank you to the Cortland Community Foundation for holding this annual fundraising contest, and congratulations to the other prize winners!
