I’ve been a member of the Library Grant Cycle Review Team for multiple years. I continue to be energized by the Community Foundation’s approach to community-based decision-making. My experience of working with a team of volunteers who expressed a deep concern for the Tompkins County community and the challenges that local libraries face in serving youth was refreshing. While we had differences of opinion, they were expressed in a respectful manner and everyone was heard. It’s great to be a part of a process that continues to result in wonderful things for the community. The Community Foundation succeeds in creating an inclusive, respectful environment that ultimately results in better decisions and better results for the people served by its grantmaking. It’s a great representation of our community and one of the many reasons I love Tompkins County.” Review Team Member, March 2016
