Celebrating our most generous supporters on August 8th; our annual Philanthropy Magnified Reception was held aboard Discover Cayuga Lake’s MV Teal.

Thank you donors and corporate sponsors, for the role that YOU play, bringing people and resources together to build a more equitable Tompkins County by inspiring diverse philanthropy, catalyzing collaborations and championing inclusion and justice.

Thank you, Stamie, for sharing powerful words, building upon the foundation of relationships and trust.
“I moved to Ithaca in May of 2020. I remember it clearly because it snowed on moving day, which was Mother’s day and we were in shorts, moving from Charlotte, NC It was a bit daunting thinking about moving during COVID and not knowing a single person in Ithaca.

I knew that I needed to find my people and get involved in my new community. I joined Rotary and attended a virtual meeting where I met George Ferrari and heard about the Community Foundation of Tompkins County. I knew right away that I had found an organization that was making a local impact and I had found some of my people in the staff and volunteers.” Stamie Despo, donor and board member ~ READ more, click HERE
