Help increase CGR's impact in the community

In 2022, CGR (Center for Governmental Research) continued to support local nonprofits in their ability to use data, refine strategy and execute effective operations. We helped local governments respond to challenges including reduced volunteers for critical functions like fire protection and emergency medical services and ways to ensure professional management in small municipalities. And we worked closely with collective efforts such as the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative, ROC the Future and Together Now (formerly Systems Integration Project) to support our community’s growing capacity to work collaboratively to tackle our most persistent challenges.

Highlights of our efforts this year include:

  • Helping Goodwill of the Finger Lakes apply a racial equity lens and incorporate measurement into a new strategic plan
  • Developing a plan for Together Now to track its implementation, impact and return on investment as it builds out a cross-sector technology platform to coordinated, person-centered services to our community’s most vulnerable individuals and families
  • Working with RMAPI on data, measurement and a landscape scan of efforts in our community to boost upward mobility
  • Evaluating the existing operations of the Tioga County Emergency Medical Services system and developing a series of recommendations
  • Aiding the Town of Seneca Falls in developing a Town Manager Position
  • Using community-based participatory research methods to involve parents and youth in developing solutions to increase the reach and effectiveness of afterschool and summer programs for youth

CGR uses philanthropic donations to keep our nonprofit research and consulting practice strong and responsive to our community’s most pressing challenges. We thank you for your support of our mission to drive positive community change through the highest quality research, analysis, data insights and collaboration.
