Your support helps us do more in the community!


For the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought forth immeasurable heartache, challenge, and perseverance in our lives and communities. Throughout this extraordinary time, Cornell Cooperative Extension has remained committed to exploring and implementing new ways of bringing high quality programming to our neighborhoods through virtual and hybrid platforms.

Backed by Cornell University-based research, Cornell Cooperative Extension continues to bring educational programming to you based on your needs. Our priorities are determined by people like you. Our volunteer board of directors is comprised of a diverse group of individuals who in turn represent our area as a whole. The result is a broad spectrum of educational programs for the residents of the Capital Region. Cornell Cooperative Extension also works collaboratively with all levels of government and community organizations, schools, and businesses.

The Cornell Cooperative Extension network brings you the expertise of locally-based extension educators, volunteers, and other experts through programs such as:

  • Master Gardeners
  • Recycling and Composting Education
  • 4-H Youth Development
  • Nutrition Education
  • Parenting Programs such as Healthy Schenectady Families

This year, the Cornell Cooperative Extension Associations of Albany, Columbia & Greene, Fulton & Montgomery, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Warren, and Washington Counties are joining together in a year-end campaign to increase awareness of and raise crucial funds for Cornell Cooperative Extension. We invite you to click on your county’s individual icon on the left side of this page to find out how CCE impacts your community. Please consider donating to your local CCE office on Giving Tuesday or any time before the end of the year.
