CAP COM Cares Mission

We nurture our community by supporting large and small local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of families in New York’s Capital Region.

Together, we're making a positive impact throughout the Capital Region.

Giving: It's in Our DNA

Our Causes


Families in need receive tangible support through our signature programs and partnerships with local nonprofit organizations we work with.


More than 30 annual scholarships and awards go to young adults who are pursuing higher education or attending a trade school as well as those returning to pursue a degree.


Each year, hundreds of children receive winter coats and backpacks with supplies for success in school, and we support agencies focused on children’s issues.

Financial Literacy

Financial literacy is a critical life skill, and we deliver educational programs to children and young adults through local schools and organizations.

Health & Wellness

We promote personal well-being by partnering with local organizations such as the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, St. Peter’s Health Partners, and others.
