By Upstate Institute on October 15, 2014

The Philanthropists at Colgate house will organize a 5K race on Saturday, October 25 as part of Colgate’s Family Weekend, and they have designated Madison County Gives as the recipient of any funds raised during the event. Race participants may register for the race here.

Madison County Gives, a new partnership between the Upstate Institute and the Konosioni Senior Honor Society, is an online crowd-funding platform that will connect not-for-profit organizations that provide services to residents of Madison County, New York with students and community members through web-based fundraising campaigns. This site will provide an avenue for direct funding for local organizations from students and campus groups, and from individuals in Madison County and beyond. The site will also provide easily accessible information about the important work that is being done in the community by organizations. The site will launch on December 1, 2014.

Funds raised through the PAC 5K will be distributed equally among the eight organizations that will be funded by Madison County Gives. These organizations are:

  • Caz Cares
  • Chenango Nursery School
  • Community Bikes
  • Community Action Partnership’s Mary Rose Center
  • Emmaus House
  • Kelberman Center
  • Wanderer’s Rest Humane Association
