Partnering with the Community Foundation

The CommunityFoundation of Tompkins County is dedicated to improving the quality of life in Tompkins County by inspiring and supporting enduring philanthropy.

Nancy Massicci, Chief development Officer, describes the Community Foundation  this way:

Community Foundation is uniquely focused on creating a learning network to engage residents in assessing and addressing local needs in the arts, children and youth, education, animal welfare, environment, civic engagement, and health and human services. We often hear, “Part of the reason people come to Community Foundation is that they know the issues, challenges, and needs.”

In 16 years, with modest resources, we have conceived, built, and advanced a dynamic foundation engaging in the best professional practices and innovative models of service, and involving donors to empower philanthropic action. Everything we do is made possible by our donors. At this point, the Community Foundation needs to raise additional operating support – both current use and endowment – by engaging others in fundraising to enhance our impact in the community.

We have much to look forward to, and feel good about, when it comes to Tompkins County. Please join us in making a financial commitment to your Community Foundation by visiting For more information please contact:
