Making a Difference For Our Community Since 1945

The Legacy Foundation of Tompkins County (formerly known as the Tompkins County Foundation), is a private foundation committed to improving the quality of life in Tompkins County by supporting non-profit organizations through semi-annual grant awards. Funding for grants comes from our endowment that continues to grow from careful management by our board, and donations and planned gifts from our generous community.

We invite those organizations needing assistance to apply for support, and we invite those community members who love Tompkins County and the quality of life it strives to provide for its citizens, to join our efforts by making a gift to Legacy.
