Humanitarian foundation sets up in Montour

MONTOUR FALLS—A foundation, called Share-Capitol Foundation, dedicated to providing funds to groups already working in the humanitarian area will set up in Montour Falls.
The organization's chairman is Jeff Snider, one of the owners of the Harvest Cafe in Montour Falls for three years now.  He and his wife, Valerie, have been involved with many charity and humanitarian groups over the years, before moving to Montour Falls.  Snider said they have previously been involved with Habitat for Humanity and Sanctuary.
Share-Capitol will take up residence in the building next to the village hall, at 412 West Main St.  Snider said the organization's scope will be to help other groups nationally and internationally.  The focus will be on things like affordable housing and child care.  He added it will not be their intention to go in and and try to help someone where another agency is already trying to do the same.  Share-Capitol's specific purpose will be to help those who "do not have the resources to to fulfill their dreams."
"The Share-Capital Foundation is established to make cash gifts, grants, zero interest loans and contributions of in-kind tangible assets, for charitable, scientific, literary, religious and educational purposes," said Snider.
The organization is still in its early stages though.
The Share-Capitol board of directors will meet in March to get them acclimated to the area.  Snider also said he is meeting with Kelsey Jones and Brian Williams from Schuyler County Partnership for Economic Development (SCOPED) this week.
