Sustainable Tompkins has several programs and projects. Read below to learn about our current programs, as well as some projects we have helped to launch in the past.
Our mini-grant program provides funds to neighborhood or community organizations working to improve quality of life for local residents through programs or projects that protect our long-term health and build capacity for sustainable living. A local citizens council makes grant awards up to $750 every quarter.
The mission of Finger Lakes Bioneers is to establish an ongoing conversation that transcends the barriers of geography, class, race, and generation to co-create a shared future based upon sustainability and social justice. Together we are offering the We Make Our Future conference as a regional venue for that conversation.
Sustainable Tompkins is preparing to launch the Finger Lakes Climate Fund to support local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect our climate. The Fund will provide our community a place to purchase offsets for carbon emissions that we can’t avoid making.
