Springbrook NY, a non-profit organization which serves people with developmental disabilities has announced the appointment of two new members to the The Springbrook Foundation, the fundraising affiliate of Springbrook NY Inc.

According to AllOTSEGO, SUNY Oneonta President Barbara Jean Morris and Ommegang CEO Doug Campbell have been chosen to join The Springbrook Foundation board (pictured above). New appointments were also made for board offices of that same board: Dr. John Anderson, past Hartwick College provost, was named as board president, Amanda Mirabito, a lawyer at Barclay Damon in Albany, was named Vice President and Secretary; Patrick Prior, whose brother Michael is a Springbrook resident, was named Treasurer.  Other board members include Patricia O’ Brien, Jim Kelsey, Executive Minister of the American Baptist Churches of New York State and Patricia Kennedy, Springbrook’s Chief Executive Officer.

The Springbrook Foundation is structured to be an organization with its own Board of Trustees tasked with raising funds for Springbrook and operating in accordance with all rules and regulations currently set in place by the New York State Nonprofit Revitalization Act. These rules and regulations exist to ensure that nonprofit organizations are operating in best practice and avoid any potential conflicts of interest that would otherwise jeopardize the integrity of a nonprofit organization.

Patricia Kennedy says, “The foundation’s responsible management of financial assets, and keen investments designed for long-term growth, assure Springbrook’s bright future. Successful leadership from the Board to Trustees and skilled operations by Foundation staff enable Springbrook to continue to achieve our mission of providing exceptional services for all of the people we support, for a lifetime. The Springbrook Foundation is a model example of a nonprofit organization in best practice.”
