Social Service League

Social Service League of Ithaca Grant Guidelines and Application

The mission of the Social Service League is to support Tompkins County not-for-profit, human service organizations in their work to address the most significant community needs. Any not-for-profit, incorporated, human/social service provider in Tompkins County is eligible to apply. Ordinarily, public/government agencies and individuals are not eligible to receive funds. Projects must prove ability to sustain themselves without continuing support from the League. Funding is not granted for capital fund drives or deficits. For more information, contact the Human Services Coalition at 607-273-8686.

In 2014-2015, the Social Service League of Ithaca Foundation received 21 applications requesting a total of $69,301 of support. The Board met in October and allocated $16,008 to 15 organizations. The Human Services Coalition continues to provide technical support and facilitate the funding process.

The next application deadline will be in Fall 2015.  For a copy of the application form please click here.
