When a neighborhood comes together to beautify, build bonds and introduce youngsters to the magic of gardening, good things blossom. That’s what’s happening on Kirkland Street in Utica, in the Oneida Square Project Community Garden.

4

An initiative of Cornerstone Community Church, the twostage undertaking includes a garden with six raised beds — cultivated and cared for by neighborhood families — along with an adjoining green space being developed as a safe area where kids can play while their parents tend the garden. Community Foundation grants — the first from the B. Victor & Ruby Rogers de Iorio Memorial Fund and a second from the Frank W. Baker Fund — have supported the two phases of the project.

Oneida Square Project Community Garden Mother nature still brings the brightest smile to a child’s face — seen here as Jimmy Vo, Emanuel Dehang, Gamela Kuwa and Mariam Kuwa water one of the flowerbeds in the Oneida Square Project Community Garden. Blueberries and herbs were also among the garden’s first crop, with an expanded line of edible produce planned for next season.

Guided by the philosophy that children learn through play, the Hand In Hand Early Childhood Center in Boonville uses play-centered experiences to teach youngsters skills and concepts, all the while surrounding them with quality care. Over 40 are served on a daily basis, including infants, toddlers and preschoolers, with an afterschool program nearly doubling the numbers during the school year.

10

The Center has received two grants from The Community Foundation. The first, from the Rosamond G. Childs and Jay-K Lumber funds, helped support construction of its new facility on Route 12. The second provided a padded, artificial grass surface material for an outdoor learning center that adjoins the building. It came from The Foundation’s B. Victor and Ruby Rogers de Iorio Memorial, Daniel C. Hayes, Harry & Edith Hurd, John E. and Harriet T. McGrath, and Alexander Pirnie funds.

While there’s early education going on, kids think of Hand In Hand’s outdoor learning center as a place for one thing – fun! Proving that are David Abraham,Izzy Marcy and Adriana Greco.

Through a partnership in several successful lumber companies, Melvin Kowalsky spent a lifetime helping others build. Through a living trust that left a large portion of his estate to The Community Foundation after his passing, to establish two funds, he will help build forever.

16

The Melvin L. Kowalsky Designated Fund benefits five agencies, in equal shares: the Stevens-Swan Humane Society, Herkimer County Humane Society, Resource Center for Independent Living, Oneida County Historical Society and Jewish Community Federation of the Mohawk Valley — two-thirds for its general use and one-third for the United Jewish Appeal.

Melvin L. Kowalsky

The Melvin L. Kowlasky Fund generates unrestricted income The Community Foundation can use for grants to meet an unlimited variety of needs. Grants have already ranged from sponsoring a concert by the Chamber Music Society of Utica, to providing scholarships for graduates of the Young Scholars Liberty Partnerships Program.

The Community Foundation Where a Gift Gives Forever

___________________

Trust and Certainty

Donors who wish to pursue a charitable passion, honor a loved one, or establish a family tradition of giving can design a fund to suit their needs. We offer a variety of fund options, all available with a minimum gift of $10,000. The fund can be started by giving the minimum all at once or as an Acorn Fund, by giving over three years with an initial gift of $5,000.

The Community Foundation provides a simple, powerful and highly personal approach to giving. We are a connecting partner — helping you, our donors, identify and support causes that reflect your personal values and priorities. We are stewards — following your specific instructions to solve problems, lift the human spirit and anchor the community.


We make giving easy by providing a wide range of giving vehicles: cash, stock, property, life insurance and real estate. Charitable donations can be made during your lifetime or planned for the future through your estate. Gifts to The Foundation benefit from the maximum tax advantages and are appreciated regardless of size.

Fulfilling Your Charitable Goals We offer a variety of fund types through which you can address your charitable vision: a Field-ofInterest, Designated, Donor-Advised or Scholarship fund; or you can create an Unrestricted fund and allow our Grants Committee to use its expertise in responding to the most urgent current community needs. Over the past 50-plus years, we have established funds for donors concerned about virtually every type of human or societal need. The grants report starting on page 6

indicates the multitude of causes that benefited from our funds in 2010.

Bequest by Will Including a charitable bequest in your will is an easy way to transfer assets to charity and make a lasting gift to your community. When you make such a gift to The Community Foundation, we establish a special fund that becomes your personal legacy (also see Legacy Society on page 36). You create the legacy while continuing to enjoy the assets you need to maintain your current lifestyle. What’s more, you are able to re-distribute some or all of your assets tax-free. Examples of language that can be used in your will for a bequest can be found on The Foundation’s website or provided by our staff for use with your professional advisor.

Ways to Give Lifetime Gift: Watch your philanthropic dollars make a difference and make a personal connection to your community by establishing a fund now.

Retirement Fund: Gift the assets from your retirement fund by naming The Foundation as a beneficiary. You can start a philanthropic fund and receive a charitable deduction.

Bequest: Leave a legacy by making a long-lasting gift through your will.

Life Insurance: The Foundation can be designated as the owner and/or beneficiary of the policy.

Charitable Remainder Trust: Receive income from a trust and designate the remainder to create a philanthropic fund. You receive an immediate charitable deduction for a portion of the gift and may avoid capital gains taxes.

General Gifts: Cash or stock gifts of any size are welcomed and appreciated at any time. They can be made in honor or memory of a special person or event in the donor’s life, and can be added to an existing fund or placed in the general endowment.

Charitable Lead Trust: Create a trust that stipulates a dollar amount to go to charity over a specific period of time. At the end of the trust term, the principal of the trust passes back to an individual beneficiary.

For More Information More information about giving through The Community Foundation, including starting a fund, leaving a bequest or making an online gift, is available at www.foundationhoc.org or by calling us at 315-735-8212.

Fun, competition and team-building experiences come together for youngsters of all ages at the Rising Stars Soccer Club.

Take the love of a game, help youngsters at all skill levels become better at it, create an atmosphere promoting teamwork and trust — on and off the field — and you begin to understand what the Rising Stars Soccer Club of Central New York is all about. Located in Westmoreland, the club’s three-field indoor facility hosts some 170 teams comprised of over 2,500 young people from communities across central New York. A grant from The Community Foundation’s Rosamond G. Childs Fund supported construction of the complex, and grants from the John A. Storm and Marjorie D. Wagner funds helped build an outdoor pavilion.

Donors Reaching Out The Wolfe-Smith Fund

Since it was established by Wesley Smith and Diane Wolfe in 2003, the Wolfe-Smith donor-advised fund at The Community Foundation has generated more than 140 grants to organizations and causes across the region and beyond — addressing human needs from hunger to health care, education to the arts. “We appreciate The Community Foundation’s recognition and support of the needs of the community. Those needs are great. Our fund provides an organized way to contribute to a larger range of causes, helping a greater cross section of people.” WESLEY SMITH, DIANE WOLFE


Legacy Society Continues to Grow The Community Foundation’s Legacy Society honors those who have chosen to shape their legacies through planned gifts from their estate to The Foundation. These gifts do not replace active giving during one’s lifetime, but rather are a final act of philanthropy that can create a new fund or enhance an existing one.

36

Giving through an estate does not diminish a donor’s current disposable income or cause financial strain. It does, however, add a gratifying dimension of permanence and affirmation that the donor is helping to ensure the future of our community and will indeed make a difference forever. Our Legacy Society continues to grow and now includes the following members:

David Jones —


“We foster informed leadership that generates excellence, innovation and entrepreneurship.” HARRISON HUMMEL, III, TRUSTEE

“ I was attracted to The Community Foundation because of the vitality it gives to nonprofits. Our new strategic plan has made me an even bigger believer. “ I’m enthusiastic about The Foundation’s resolve to identify critical issues and address them with a major portion of its grant funding. Equally exciting is the focus on fostering collaborative relationships with nonprofits across the two counties. “ These commitments should excite everyone in our region.” DAVID JONES

Sharing a Resort Community’s Historic Side While best known for its resplendent mountains and lakes, the Old Forge area of the central Adirondacks has a history as rich and intriguing as its natural beauty. Preserving that history and sharing it through exhibits, programs and restored buildings is the Town of Webb Historical Association. The Association is based in the Goodsell Museum, a century-old Victorian home in the heart of Old Forge, whose grounds include an original carriage barn and ice house. The Association also oversees the historic Hemmer Cottage, located a short distance away on the Old Forge Pond.

Town of Webb Historical Association Exhibits at the Webb Historical Association’s Goodsell Museum take visitors back in time as well as outdoors for a fascinating exploration of the region’s rich history and habitat.

Since 2004 the Association has been the beneficiary of 20 grants from The Community Foundation, emanating from discretionary funds as well as from several donor-advised funds, including the Town of Webb, A. Richard Cohen Family and Janice Luck O’Connor Friends funds. The support has been used for a variety of purposes, from building restoration and improvements, to preserving and archiving historical materials. The Association also has an agency fund at The Foundation, started in 2006.


Corporate Partners Our Corporate Partners are companies that have joined forces with The Foundation to address broad community issues, expand philanthropy and build nonprofit excellence. These businesses deeply believe in “giving back.” They are partnering with us because we can do more together than alone. We thank them for their sponsorship, citizenship and generosity.

LAVC Website Identifying Needs Launched in the spring of 2010, the website embodying the results of the community indicators study undertaken by the Leadership Alliance for a Vital Community is well into its second year of being a resource for identifying and addressing the region’s most pressing needs and opportunities for positive change. The Community Foundation is a partner in the Alliance, along with Mohawk Valley EDGE and United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area. The website, www.hocindicators.com, provides a statistical snapshot of key issues, and projects county-level data benchmarks that agencies and organizations can use to establish shared goals toward increasing the region’s economic viability and sustainability.

“We partner with other leaders in order to support and sustain community well-being.” MARY LYONS BRADLEY, TRUSTEE
