The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region invites you to join us for a learning tour of nonprofits who are making a difference in the lives of women and families across our region.
The series is open to women who are curious and want to understand our community’s emerging needs and learn more about innovative nonprofit solutions. You are invited to attend one, two, three… or all stops in our series.
And if you would like, we encourage you to bring an engaged female friend who shares your sense of adventure.
There is no cost to attend, and no one will be asked to give.

|We know the positive effect of connecting with nature, but we often forget how difficult
this can be for individuals with differing abilities. The Community Foundation is grateful
for the Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Fund, part of our Community Impact grants, which
supported the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance with funding to create a 1-mile round trip
ADA wheelchair accessible trail at the Albert Family Community Forest. The project also
includes an ADA compliant parking area at the trailhead. We encourage seasonal/weather
appropriate outdoor attire and welcome friends of all abilities to join us.

47 Phila Street, Saratoga Springs
|“An American Treasure” were the words used by the Library of Congress to distinguish
this hometown jewel. Rooted in history, Caffe Lena is widely recognized as the longest,
continuously operating folk music venue in the United States and has significantly
contributed to the development of American Music. Join us for a behind the scenes look
and listen with Executive Director Sarah Craig who will share the history, architecture,
and continued commitment to educating children and adults. Caffe Lena continues to
support the creation and art of folk music year-round. No matter your musical ability or
taste, we are certain that your visit to Caffe Lena will lift your spirits. Refreshments will
follow our tour and conversation.
