6th Ward Athletic Association Foundation, Inc

The 6th Ward Athletic Association Foundation is looking for principal donors to support the new foundation. The 6th Ward created this foundation so that your donation would be tax deductible. All the money that is used to support local organizations from the 6th Ward Athletic Association Foundation comes from people like you. In an attempt to support local community activities the board of directors is attempting to raise funds for the foundation.

The 6th Ward Athletic Association Foundation Inc will serve as a source of funds to assist in the support of local charitable and educational institutions in the Oneonta, NY area. The Foundation is specifically interested in supporting organizations and activities that are connected with youth athletics and the promotion of good sportsmanship, building good character, and making of responsible local citizens. This support will include high school student scholarships, food drives, and many other social and cultural programs for the benefit of the general public. The Foundation will also use its funds to support various public service organizations with the purpose of enhancing education, health, and community spirit in the city of Oneonta, NY.

The 6th ward has been supporting community activities for over 50 years, and looks forward to continuing to support as many activities as possible. In the past we have supported the Oneonta Boys and Girls Club, Oneonta Family YMCA, American Legion Baseball, Catskill Area Hospice, Opportunities for Otsego, as well as many others. With the help of your charitable, tax deductible donation the 6th Ward Athletic Association Foundation will continue to be able to help all ofthese organizations and many
more for years to come. If you would like to learn more about our foundation please contact any of our board members or call the club at (607)436-9136. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

The Foundation’s purpose - will serve as a source of funds to assist in the support of local charitable and educational institutions in the Oneonta, NY area.  The Foundation is specifically interested in supporting organizations and activities that are connected with youth athletics and the promotion of good sportsmanship, building of good character, and making of responsible local citizens. This support will include high school student scholarships, food drives, and many other social and cultural programs for the benefit of the general public. The Foundation will also use its funds to support various public service organizations with the purpose of enhancing education, health, and community spirit in the City of Oneonta, NY

There will be two separate and distinct areas of giving to be supported by the Foundation; grants to community programs produced by local charitable groups and student scholarships.  There is a clear application process for both. The Foundation Board will be meeting monthly.  It is expected that the 6th Ward Athletic Club will be the primary funder to the Foundation, but it’s the Board’s hope to grow the Foundation by appealing to individual, family and corporate donors wishing to step-up to help facilitate the good work of the Foundation.
