The Community Foundation has gone digital! Inquiries and applications to our granting programs can now be completed on-line. If you do not have access to a computer, or if you do not feel comfortable with your on-line application skill-level, please contact Tina Barber, Program Officer at 607-772-6773. Please do not submit a paper application unless you have been instructed to do so after speaking with Tina.
Before you begin the application process, you must create an account for your organization. To create an account, visit our log-in page.
Below, please find the link to a tutorial that will help you navigate this step. Your organization will only be required to register once and thereafter will be able to access the system by logging-in with the password you’ve created. If you are with a large organization, you may create multiple accounts as long as you clearly designate the department that you are representing. (e.g. Tioga Opportunities-Family Planning or Broome County Council of Churches-CHOW)
