Birth To 3 Fundraiser

Help Tompkins County and our little ones now. An early investment for a lifetime of returns!

A fundraising campaign for Community Foundation of Tompkins County

The first three years of a child's life are a critical period of development. Early interactions and supports serve as the foundation for later skills and achievements. Your gift to the Birth to 3 Fund supports the social, physical, and emotional capabilities of infants and toddlers, which will generate returns that will accrue over a lifetime.

Your gift, alongside others, fuel much needed funding for vital services supporting children and families.  

Here are a few examples of how your gift helps young children and families:

  • Emergency basic supplies (such as formula and diapers) for families struggling to meet these needs of their young children during the Covid-19 crisis.
  • Support for quality affordable day care for infants and toddlers.
  • Support for a current collaboration with 211 to create a user-friendly website to help families with very young children find and access needed services.

About the Organization

Community Foundation of Tompkins County

Guided by the board, donor’s gifts are granted to meet needs and challenges in Tompkins County. In 2020, community members on our Grant Review Teams see an increase in applications and make hard choices to distribute funds to non-profits in the region. A few examples of needs and grants made: Local libraries cannot afford story time for children. Economic downturn expenses, housing, food, childcare and groceries. Community Foundation grants bring fresh, nutritious food to these individuals free of charge and other basic need resources.

With your help, significant progress has been made to continue this good work and to achieve our mission to improve the quality of life in Tompkins County.

Thank you for your generosity.

George, Janet, Nancy, Amy and Jessie
