Peter C. Cornell Trust

After engaging in strategic planning for the past year, the Peter C. Cornell Trust has decided to distribute all its assets and will not be accepting grant applications in the future.

Current and former Cornell Trustees are grateful to have had the opportunity to support our region throughout the Trust’s 73-year history.

In 2011, Cornell Trustees chose to partner with the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, which provided the Trustees with administrative support, investment stewardship, philanthropic advice, and access to local nonprofit leaders and initiatives.  This partnership enhanced the Trustees’ ability to make generous, effective and impactful grants.

On behalf of future generations of Western New Yorkers who will benefit from their visionary generosity, we thank the Peter C. Cornell Trustees for their philanthropic investments in our community.
