Cortland Youth Bureau Receives Over $150K Donation

Local News

In last night’s City Council meeting, the Cortland Youth Bureau received a donation of over $150,000 from the estate of Donald P. Sharpe.

The money was accepted by Youth Bureau director John McNerney, who was also honored by Mayor Tobin at the meeting for his 30 years of service.

As per the wishes of Mr. Sharpe, the donation will be placed in a trust fund that will only be used for new ventures and opportunities within the Bureau, not to offset current costs.

The Youth Bureau has already come up with several ideas it could use the new funds for, including new programming for recreation and youth center activities, scholarship funds for youth sports participants, renovation of the “Rocket Slide” at Beaudry park and new youth football uniforms, among many other ideas.
