Good news for all the citizen activists in Tompkins County! Natural Investments has joined our team as a sponsor for the Neighborhood Mini-Grants program. Natural Investments has been a leader in socially and environmentally responsible investing for over two decades, actively seeking to balance the need for financial return with the desire to improve life for others and the Earth.

They donate ≥1% to nonprofits of their choice and Greg Pitts of the New York branch picked Sustainable Tompkins mini-grants program to sponsor. Natural Investments is a B Corporation “Best for the World” winner in 2015 and a Green America Certified Green Business.  The latest book by their principals, The Resilient Investor, looks at more than how we use and invest or money – it also focuses on how we direct our time and attention.

The next deadline for applications to our Mini-Grant program is September 1. Thanks to the sponsorship of Natural Investments and Finger Lakes Wealth Management, we will be able to support the good ideas our local residents have for making this community more resilient, just, and sustainable.
