Holiday Gift Giving Event

Help your community send two people of financial need through the Leadership Tompkins program. Fundraiser for Leadership Tompkins

A fundraising campaign for Leadership Tompkins

Leadership Tompkins Values Diversity!

We are fortunate to live in a community that values civic engagement and volunteerism! Most Leadership Tompkins participants are sponsored by their employers. Two essential sectors, however, are traditionally under-represented: small business and non-profits. Help us diversify our program and strengthen our community by providing scholarships for aspiring leaders from these two groups!

What's our Goal?

Our goal is to raise $2,000! This is enough to send two people with financial need through the Leadership Tompkins program.  Any funds raised above this amount will go into the scholarship program.

About the Organization

Leadership Tompkins engages a diverse group of aspiring and existing community leaders in building networks, developing leadership skills and raising awareness of local issues.

• Become more aware of and engaged in current issues facing the region
• Set realistic goals for personal leadership development
• Expand local network of mentors, community leaders and resources
• Learn how local leaders tackle community issues
• Prepare for future involvement as a non-profit board member, community volunteer or public servant
• Foster continued relationships with Leadership Tompkins
