Cynthia O’Connor selected by the Gifford Foundation . . .

Oct 31 2017

The Gifford Foundation has announced the newest cohort for ADVANS (Advancing and Developing the Assets and Value of Nonprofits in Syracuse), a major capacity building initiative started by the Foundation in 2007. Cynthia O’Connor was asked back as one of ADVANS select consultants to lead AccesCNY through this two-year process. It starts with an extensive self-assessment and is followed by the implementation of a work plan to strengthen all facets of their organizational capacity. AccesCNY was founded in 2015 as the result of the merger of Enable and Transitional Living Services (TLS). They offer person-centered services that empower individuals of all ages and abilities to reach their full potential as part of our shared community.  This is Cynthia’s third ADVANS cycle and she noted “I am excited to get started with this new ADVANS cohort  – – – and am honored to be a part of this important work  building strong non-profits that are so vital for life in Central New York .”
