Building a sustainable community, one supporter at a time.

Since 2004, Sustainable Tompkins has been providing leadership and support to the local sustainability movement.  We’ve been at the leading edge of designing for healthy, thriving communities that safeguard the well-being of future generations and the natural systems we all depend on.

With an office and staff, we have demonstrated our capacity to stay in the work for the long haul – and we need your support and engagement to keep our programs like the Neighborhood Mini-Grants, Signs of Sustainability, and Finger Lakes Climate Fund going. Instead of our formal membership program of the past, we are now engaging with all of our donors as our supporters.

Your donations to Sustainable Tompkins allow us to build a community of individuals and organizations who both support and challenge one another to live more sustainably.
