Friends of Extension

Dear Prospective Friend of the Extension Foundation:

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County (CCEMC) has helped thousands of Monroe County adults and youth through its Agricultural, Nutritional, Horticultural and 4-H Youth Development Programs, as well as the ever-popular Master Gardener Volunteer and 4-H Programs.

Programs, such as 4-H’s “learn-by-doing” projects, activities and camps; Horticulture’s Diagnostic Lab and Master Gardener Volunteer Help Line; Nutrition’s nutrition classes; and the Agricultural teams’ economic development and production and marketing expertise, have been meeting the needs of Monroe County residents since 1913.

We’d like to invite you to join us in our effort to continue fulfilling our mission by becoming a Friend of the Extension Foundation. By joining and becoming a Friend, you’ll not only reap the benefits of the various giving levels, but also support CCE Monroe programming.

CCE Monroe continues to enhance its programming to address current educational needs, as well as emerging community needs. These emerging needs include an abundant and safe food supply, profitable plant and animal production systems, youth and family development, environmental stewardship, and improved community health, as well as addressing the effects the economic crisis is having in our area.

In the past and in its collective vision for the future, CCE Monroe brings many educational opportunities to Monroe County residents.

Cornell Cooperative Extension in Monroe County is supported by public and private funding. Primary cooperative partners are the County of Monroe, the State of New York, and SUNY’s Land Grant Colleges at Cornell University, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Cornell Cooperative Extension is an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities and provides equal program and employment opportunities.
