Help us win the Cortland County Community Foundation’s 2020 Philanthropy Challenge!
Each year, the Cortland County Historical Society, with the support of our membership as well as local history fans, participates in this generous giving event in honor of National Philanthropy Day on November 15.
We have all felt the challenges of this strangest of years. For the Cortland County Historical Society, 2020 has been a particular challenge, with the loss of county funding combined with the pandemic. We can minimize these losses and beat our record from previous years with a little help from our friends!
