Grant Programs

The Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers role is to inspire people and mobilize resources to strengthen our communities. To accomplish this the Foundation works in partnership with our donors and with leaders in the nonprofit, business and government sectors to address key community issues.

2018 Robert Sullivan Grant Incentive

The 2018 Robert Sullivan Incentive Grant Program focuses on endowment-building. The program’s goal is to incentivize the Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers Nonprofit Endowment Partners to invest for the future needs of their organization so the good they do can continue. Endowments also provide a steady revenue source, allow donors to leave a legacy, and convey stability, fiscal responsibility and prudent planning.
