Support

If you are a member of the community who would like to contribute to the lives of the children of Oswego County, we encourage you to join our team as a volunteer and even consider becoming a Board member.

Donations

The organization accepts private contributions from individual donors and civic organizations. All contributions are deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Individuals donors of the annual United Way Campaign can designate Children’s Board of Oswego as a recipient of their donation. Our organization is grateful to those who have partnered with us. Please consider designating Children’s Board during the next campaign. Donation forms are available or donate online through PayPal.

 Volunteer

The Children’s Board of Oswego NY, Inc. meets monthly, from September through May, on the third Tuesday of each month. Our membership includes a diverse representation of backgrounds, interest, and professions in the community. The nice thing about becoming a Board member is that you can choose how much time you are able to commit to the projects of the Children’s Board.

Perhaps if now is not the right time to join our group on a regular basis, you may wish to find a Children’s Board opportunity or project on which you would like to team with us.  We are a flexible organization and are grateful to those who would like to occasionally partner with us.  Some of our projects for which you may wish to volunteer, include:

  • Poinsettia day offering help with sorting of plants and with delivery of them
  • Assembling and/or distributing poison prevention packets
  • Shopping for a family in need with funds provided by Children’s Board
  • Assist at one of our sponsored art events, such as ice skating or an author’s reading

If you are a member of the community who would like to contribute to the lives of the children of Oswego County, we encourage you to join our team as a volunteer and even consider becoming a Board member.  We are always eager to have new ideas and creative participation. Contact us to learn more about our activities.
