SAYRE - The Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers is beginning its annual fundraising campaign.
"We realize these are hard economic times that have been compounded locally by our recent flood. However, these times serve to highlight the value of such organizations as the community foundation," said Bill Ransom, CFTT Board Chairman. "That is why we turn to our local businesses, organizations and individuals to support its operating budget."
The CFTT serves the residents of Bradford, Potter, Sullivan and Tioga counties in Pennsylvania and Tioga County in New York State. The CFTT is a purely public charity, incorporated as a nonprofit organization.
The mission of the CFTT is to continuously improve the present and future quality of life in the counties served by the Foundation. It establishes endowment funds from contributions of many individual citizens, corporations, other foundations, other charitable organizations and government agencies for philanthropic purposes.
As the endowment funds grow, it uses the interest earned on these funds to make grants that follow the goals and interest of the donor and, in the case of discretionary funds, to organizations or projects that serve identified community needs as determined by the CFTT Board of Directors.
