Annual Appeal

The staff and volunteers of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County have been serving the people of Suffolk County for more than 100 years! Since 1917, extension educators have been assisting families, responding to the relevant issues facing our area businesses and keeping our heritage industries of agriculture and marine resources thriving.

Without you, our supporters and friends, CCE would not be able to accomplish what we do. With your support, we are able to secure innovative grants. Because of you, we are looking to the future in order to meet the needs of the next generation!

As we approach 2020, we continue to look at ways to meet the needs of our youth, adults and seniors. With an eye to the future, together we will strengthen families and communities, enhance and protect the environment, foster economic development and promote sustainable agriculture.

Thank you for being such an important part of our past … and our future!
