Endowment Giving

The Northern New York Community Foundation continues to demonstrate it support for ONNY in many ways. Once again last year, NNYCF awarded a $15,000 grant to the Orchestra to help defray the cost of producing the Watertown concert series. 

In June 2019, it bestowed a $10,000 matching grant to grow ONNY's endowment. Since then, $3,945 in private donations to the endowment have been matched by NNYCF.

Finally, in August, NNYCF authorized another $15,000 grant from the Sidney T. Cox Memorial Fund, held by NNYCF, to fund the season opening concert at the Clayton Opera House.

Double your contribution to ONNY with this wonderful matching gift opportunity. Contact Executive Director Kathy Del Guidice at or 315-267-3251.
