NYS Maple Producers Association Support for the Cornell Maple Program

The NYS Maple Producers Association is continuously grateful for all of the research, information, and knowledge provided by the Cornell Maple Program.  Helpful resources such as Stephen Childs and the research studies he completes and educational tools he provides are a direct result of the Cornell Maple Program efforts.  This program has not only advanced association knowledge and interest, but also has helped maple, as a crop, gain more local and national exposure.

We ask our members to consider donating to the Cornell Maple Program endowment, to ensure the continued funding support of these valuable resources.  Here are some commonly asked questions regarding donations.

What address should gift checks be sent?

Please send your donation checks to:

What exact ‘pay to’ name should be on the check?
