About the Greater
In 1952, Dave and Gladys Emerson returned to Oxford to take the helm of the family business and to raise their young family. Over the next 50 years, they worked tirelessly to give back to the community that had given them so much. From church suppers to scout troops, from youth programs to elder care, they gave their time and money to make Chenango County a great place to live.
Inspired by their example, the Emerson sons Tom and David along with close friend and business partner Neil Bartle took it upon themselves to create and invest in what they hope will become a self-sustaining local initiative, the Oxford Community Fund.
The purpose of the Greater Oxford Community Fund is to provide financial support for community enterprises.
“By making a significant long-term investment in the greater Oxford area, we can improve life for residents in a variety of ways. Whether increasing opportunities for our youth, filling gaps in local medical care, nurturing the growth of local businesses, or helping meet the needs of our seniors.” Dave Emerson
