Just Be Cause Not-For-Profit Development Center, Inc. was created in honor of Judy Dietz as a resource for not-for-profit organizations in the Tompkins County area and beyond. Inspired by Judy's philanthropic work, the Corporation is dedicated to helping organizations increase their productivity and enhance their efficiency.
Among the Corporate activities, we intend to provide physical space and shared facilities for burgeoning and established not-for-profits at market rate rents or below. We recognize that cross-fertilization, collaboration, synergy and creative thinking are enhanced when charitably oriented organizations work side-by-side.
We expect to raise funds for the purpose of providing and subsidizing rental space for not-for-profits. We also intend to conduct community strengthening events throughout the year that will raise additional funds to provide grants, financial and organizational counseling, networking and other similar services to not-for-profits in our community and beyond.
