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. Public/government agencies and individuals are not eligible to receive funds. Projects must show the ability to sustain themselves without continuing support from the League. Funding is not granted for capital fund drives or deficits. For more information, read the Social Service League brochure or contact John Mazzello at the Human Services Coalition at 607.273.8686.
