About Community Foundation of Tompkins County

To improve the quality of life in Tompkins County, the Community Foundation inspires philanthropy. A motivated board of 27 members and many volunteers. In 2018 Community Foundation supported our communities with $1.8 million in grants and raised $2.6 million.

We do 4 functions with 3 resources. Functions: We take in, take good care of, learn and put back out. Resources: 1. With gifts we prudently invest and it comes out as a grant. 2. Information: We look at what are our needs? Challenges? That information guides us and where we put financial resources. 3. We share that information by convening and catalyzing groups and meetings.
