First Steps for The Sophie Fund

The Sophie Fund is off to a heartening start. Nearly 100 donations arrived—from within the Ithaca community and from people all over the world—in just the first two weeks of the fund’s existence.

Our very deep thanks for your thoughtful and generous contributions. The Sophie Fund also thanks George Ferrari, Amy LeViere, and everyone at the Community Foundation of Tompkins County for their tremendous efforts on the fund’s behalf.

Posters announcing The Sophie Fund are going up all over Ithaca.

Please help us spread the word so The Sophie Fund can better support mental health issues in the greater Ithaca community.
