New Initiatives

Encourage and support new ventures to improve the lives of high need populations.

SiCM provides the knowledge, supports, and connections to assist individuals and/or agencies in Schenectady County develop new nonprofit programs/services. SiCM has the expertise and leadership to support new initiatives that will optimize risk and provide stability to strengthen the venture.

For SiCM to consider a New Initiative, the plan should:

  • Align with SICM’s mission
  • Address gaps in services for high need populations
  • Present a proposed budget (i.e., projected revenue and expenses)
  • Articulate purpose of venture project/service
  • Demonstrate individual empowerment and self-reliance, whenever possible.
