Our Community Cares, Inc.

Assisting residents of Columbia County, NY


Our Community Cares, Inc. is an approved 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.  All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by current IRS regulations.


The key to being able to help the members of our community is to fund-raise throughout the year. This will enable us to keep a reserve of funds that can be distributed throughout the community as the need arises. This will make us more “pro-active” to community requests instead of “re-active”. Currently, when the need arises for a resident, the community scrambles to find a way to put together a spaghetti dinner, bake sale or coin drop to raise money. Each of these items take planning, resources and time to put together. It may be several weeks before the affected resident receives any financial or emotional support from these fundraising events. By planning events throughout the year, a source of funds will be available within hours to an affected resident. We can then address short-term needs versus long term needs.
