Tompkins County Funders Group

The Community Foundation is proud to be an active participant in the Tompkins County Funders’ Group.

This gathering of local philanthropic professionals meets quarterly or more often to help coordinate our joint activities, network with one another, and better learn about community needs.

We gather information on grant opportunities from other local funders who have interests in investing in the results of the work of Tompkins County non-profits.

quote Sir Wilfred Grenfell

The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth. It is obvious that man is himself a traveler; that the purpose of this world is not "to have and to hold" but "to give and serve." There can be no other meaning
