Learn about Alano Club and SCCF's January nonprofit training.
Alano Club of Angola
“It started as a thought.” Bill Ramos, Executive Director of the
Alano Club of Angola, said the idea for the nonprofit came from a similar club in Detroit. He thought that Steuben County could benefit from a safe meeting place for people in recovery from alcohol and addiction to socialize and talk recovery. Ramos reached out to community members he had met through meetings and asked for their advice and expertise, which helped Alano Club become a tax-exempt nonprofit organization with the ability to provide hope and direction for people. Today, it’s a welcoming place in downtown Angola for those who are in recovery or still struggling, to come in and ask for help from people who have been in their shoes. It’s also a family friendly place – especially for karaoke night on Saturdays!

Thank you to all the nonprofits who participated in SCCF's 2019 Nonprofit Wish List! The Community Foundation has already heard from donors who appreciated reading about the greatest needs of our local 501(c)(3) nonprofits, and we hope it continues to be a useful resource for you throughout the next year. We're gathering your feedback to make next year's list even better. If you haven't already, please take this survey:
On November 13th, Dr. Kelly Trusty led a group of representatives from Steuben County 501(c)(3) nonprofits in a discussion about their organizational needs and community-wide challenges. SCCF is thankful for the time and input given by all the attendees! Your discussions will be put to use as we determine future nonprofit capacity building projects.
