Corporate Cornerstone Partners

Building a foundation of philanthropy and leadership


Tompkins County can be defined in many ways: home, a place of learning and fun, a workplace, a chance for new beginnings, an area to appreciate the journeys of a full and long life. All of these experiences and more make this community unique and a place that can foster the best that life has to offer.

Since 1921, United Way of Tompkins County has been an integral part of life in this special area. Regardless of location and activity, UWTC has been a constant in making life better. As UWTC strengthens our community, Corporate Cornerstone Partners provide the infrastructure upon which UWTC works and serves. This generous and committed group of individuals and employers join together and underwrite UWTC’s administrative costs so that 100% of all other donations can be used for needed program services.

You can be a part of this important effort that leverages every contribution, and the programs supported and operated by UWTC. When you choose to be a Corporate Cornerstone Partner, you are investing in creating a better community and elevating the philanthropic efforts nearly 5,000 caring individuals and employers.

Your support will be recognized in a variety of public ways including website, traditional and social media, UWTC collaterals, and more. The names of Corporate Cornerstone Partners become almost synonymous with UWTC through year-round activities and branded events.

If you are interested in making a community investment that will produce multi-level returns, strengthen lives and our community, please email or call 607-272-6286.

Join us and help make the full promise of this special community a reality.
