Northern New York Community Foundation

In order to responsibly raise, manage, and administer the collection of funds in William Plante’s name we have partnered with the Northern New York Community Foundation, Inc. (NNYCF).

NNYCF has been working with donors in the community to benefit Northern New York through grants and scholarships since 1929. For more information on the important contributions NNYCF has made to our community, please visit the NNYCF’s webpage.


NNYCF has a portal through which they can accept donations for the charities and scholarships they support throughout the community. By making a donation through NNYCF, donors will be able to receive a proper charitable receipt.

To make an online donation, please follow the link below and select the William P. Plante Memorial Fund.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a method of supporting non-profits and charities that enables philanthropic individuals or donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. While some planned gifts provide a life-long income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and other heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. NNYCF can also assist with any planned giving you may want to contribute to the memorial fund.
