The Council of Agency Executives
The Council is a product of its history, its mission, its members and its leadership. We are continually evolving and growing, bringing together some of the most dynamic, trusted, and forward-thinking community leaders. Our members are challenged daily to meet the needs of their constituents with fewer and fewer resources.
Our members include a wide spectrum of nonprofits, from the very large to the very small. Collectively, members invest over 1 billion dollars in the Greater Rochester area, and employ more than 20,000 individuals. The services they provide help more than 1,000,000 people each year. (Note: This number includes duplications since beneficiaries may be served by more than one agency and we have no means to unduplicate agency reports.)
Our members are also resources in themselves. They are experts in their respective disciplines, and make productive, contributing partners in community planning efforts. The Council provides access for those seeking the kind of experience and expertise our members have.
