Northern Rivers Receives $25,000 in Grants for Camp To Belong NY



Northern Rivers Family of Services’ Camp To Belong NY program has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Seymour Fox Foundation, a $5,000 grant from the M&T Charitable Foundation, a $3,000 grant from the MAXIMUS Foundation, and a $2,000 grant from the Cohoes Savings Bank Foundation.

The funds will help support operations for Camp to Belong NY, a weeklong camp provided free of charge to children who have been separated by the foster care system. This year’s session is being held June 23-29 at Camp Chingachgook in Lake George.

“We are truly grateful to the Seymour Fox Foundation, the M&T Charitable Foundation, the MAXIMUS Foundation and the Cohoes Savings Bank Foundation for supporting Camp To Belong NY. Our campers will be able to make memories with their siblings to last a lifetime thanks to the generosity of these donors,” said William T. Gettman, CEO of Northern Rivers.

“It is with great pleasure that I present Northern Rivers with this MAXIMUS Foundation grant, which is funded, in part, by MAXIMUS employees,” said John Boyer, MAXIMUS Foundation Chairman. “It is an honor to present this grant to such a deserving organization, and I thank Northern Rivers for its commitment to enriching the lives of those it serves.”
