Community Foundation Partners with Tompkins Chamber of Commerce Finger Lakes Pay It Forward Initiative

Community Foundation provides confidential, no-fee philanthropic advising to Tompkins County Chamber members participating in the new Finger Lakes Pay It Forward initiative.


As generous corporate citizens of our community you likely receive many requests to contribute and make donations of all types. You respond in the moment and do what you can. But you wonder if there is more information that could help your business to be even more effective in its giving strategy. What local resources and information are available to assist your corporate charitable giving?


Community Foundation is the answer, by serving as a no-fee philanthropic advisor with comprehensive, current and critically analyzed data on local needs, best practices and specific nonprofit agencies. Expert in exploring with businesses and organizations how to achieve goals, Community Foundation can create a plan that uses individual judgment, corporate values and philanthropic data to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of corporate giving.
