The Adirondack Nonprofit Network (ANN) and the Common Ground Alliance (CGA) will present "The Power and Promise of Our Nonprofits" Thursday, Nov. 21, at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake. The event will feature the unveiling of a study that analyzes the economic impact of 36 regional organizations.
"The Adirondack region's nonprofit sector plays a vital role in maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in our communities," says Nick Rose, executive director of the Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century (CAP-21), a member of ANN and a CGA participant. "These organizations provide healthcare for families in need, protect valuable environmental resources, and respond with aid when disaster strikes. They also entertain us, educate us and enrich our lives."
ANN paid for the economic impact study. The findings were compiled and analyzed by the SUNY Oswego Office of Business and Community Relations, while the study itself was written and produced by Adirondack Foundation (formerly Adirondack Community Trust) and Davidson Design Inc.
The Wild Center Director of Philanthropy Hillarie Logan-Dechene and Blue Mountain Center Director Ben Strader will present the study starting at 10 a.m.
The agenda also features opportunities for collaboration and networking. The event costs $40 each, which includes lunch. For more information or to register contact Adirondack North Country Association at (518) 891-6200 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.adirondack.org/nonprofit.

THE 36 THAT WERE STUDIED
The following organizations are included in the study. This list includes 26 members of ANN and 10 other nonprofits selected for inclusion by a subcommittee of ANN. A more comprehensive study including churches and tax-exempt civic organizations would have been too costly.
