Published on

Presentation about partnership between NY Council of Nonprofits, the statewide nonprofit association, and Creating Rural Opportunities Partnership, a provider of after school programs for 17 school districts in Otsego and Delaware Counties. The partnership involves NYCON providing social media training to help CROP create a social network to better connect parents and school districts, and ultimately help CROP develop a proposed foundation or friends group to support and solicit charitable contributions for sustaining after school programs.
