What Others Are Saying About Us

We work closely with many individuals and organizations to fulfill our core initiatives, whether it’s helping people celebrate their community’s history or supporting patients and their families facing a blood cancer diagnosis. The sentiments of our partners and grant recipients matters deeply. We’re proud to share what they’re saying about us. 

A number of significant Crouse Health initiatives have received support from The William G. Pomeroy Foundation. Nurse training and educational programs, critical emergency and healthcare services, and efforts to enhance the patient experience – all have benefited from the ideas and involvement of The William G. Pomeroy Foundation. At Crouse Health, it is truly our privilege to work with such generous and visionary friends like Trustees Bill and Sandra Pomeroy, Executive Director Paula Miller and the Foundation’s dedicated staff.

We’ve had the opportunity to help more than 40 communities celebrate their local stories through the Pomeroy Foundation’s Legends & Lore program. It’s strengthened our statewide connections, brought more attention to folklore, and enhanced awareness of our work.

I have worked on a variety of projects with the William G. Pomeroy Foundation for several years, both in my previous position as Executive Director of the Museum Association of New York (MANY) and in my current position as New York State Historian. Their New York State Historic Marker Grant Program is world-class and the support they have given to the A New York Minute in History podcast is vital to that program’s success. I can honestly say that there is no better friend to New York State’s history than the Pomeroy Foundation.

As the great-great granddaughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and the great granddaughter of Harriot Stanton Blatch, both woman's suffrage & rights pioneers, I am scurrying around New York State for the unveiling of Pomeroy plaques in Shoreham, Long Island; Johnstown, at the foothills of the Adirondack mountains; and soon to East Hampton. At these events, I have noticed that your foundation has created the greatest sense of civic pride that I have witnessed in years. Thus, from the depth of my existence, thank you for recognizing contributions to democracy that have impacted 51% of the population – women. Your cause is worthy!

I congratulate The William G. Pomeroy Foundation for its contributions to preserve New York’s history. The North Hempstead grants provided by the Foundation have reinforced the rich history of our town while inspiring restoration and preservation efforts at these historic sites. Please continue your wonderful program!

The Cedar Point House marker recognizes the symbol of dreams realized through hard work and persistence. Often, the attempt to modernize leads to the destruction and disappearance of what was once our greatness. Though many are too young to remember the history firsthand, The William G. Pomeroy Foundation has offered the opportunity to study and appreciate it by funding historical markers across the state. As a retired teacher and the granddaughter of the last proprietors of Cedar Point House, I applaud your work. I hope the interest of many will be sparked and they will be motivated to consider the legacy they will leave to future generations.

I just want to thank the William G. Pomeroy Foundation for awarding a grant for commemorating the birthplace of Matilda Joslyn Gage. This worthy lady was (until now) practically forgotten about in Cicero. If not for your foundation, her footprint may have remained unnoticed here indefinitely. Thanks again for your generous grant.
