As CCE Schuyler looks to the rest of 2020 and 2021, we are beginning an annual fund drive to help support our programming here at CCE. It is called RISE Together – highlighting our four key vales of Resilience, Innovation, Sustainability and Education – values that are even more important today than ever before. The coronavirus has made it a tough year for everyone, including CCE. We’ve had to shift much of our programming to virtual platforms and unfortunately had to cancel Hidden Valley 4-H camp this year. But CCE carries on. It’ll be a tough year with the Coronavirus and it’s many impacts and we can use all the support our community can muster. We have set a fundraising goal for 2020 of $10,000 to support our youth services, horticultural programming, agricultural programs, woodland services, parenting education , nutrition and energy programming, and we need your help.
Please contribute what you can today!

Through challenging times, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County supports and strengthens our community. Because of us, families, farms and communities can remain healthy and thrive.

We need your support to continue our work that brings benefits to you and your neighbors.

CCE Schuyler:

  • Conducts agricultural research and educational programs to help farms increase profits, reduce costs and minimize the impact on the environment, including teaching about organic and sustainable practices.
  • Encourages people to “buy local,” which saves money, leads to healthier diets, and lends support to local farms.
  • Shows people how to grow their own food, how to prepare it and how to preserve it for later use.
  • Builds positive life skills and provide alternatives to risk-taking behavior in youth.
  • Supports community initiatives such as Solar Schuyler and the HEART (Healthy Eating and Activity in Rural Towns) club.
  • Educates people about how to save energy and how to reduce their heating and cooling costs.

Your donation, large or small, helps us continue to be an effective local partner. Thank you for supporting youth, families, farms and community!

CCE Schuyler is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
