Schenectady Works exists to help people. We believe that is best achieved when we can work on the same page with individuals, organizations, and the community. Schenectady Works exists within the context of other businesses and non profits. Through our multiple social enterprises we offer services that add value to your organization and the community. If you are interested in partnering with one of our business units or simply investing back into the community we would love your partnership. We are grateful for each and every partner that has supported us as we have grown and learned.
As a 403-B Non-Profit, we do not receive government funding or assistance. Your generous contributions matter. It is only through the financial support of our partners, community, and friends that we are able to continue our work in Schenectady and the Capital Region.
