Tompkins County Funders Group

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

quote George Ferrari, CEO, Community Foundation

Community philanthropy is first and foremost about people not transactions... We offer a different vision of philanthropy embedded in the context of collaborative achievement, uplifting capacity, and fierce self-determination. We think of philanthropy as an expression of hope.
