The Sophie Fund, Inc. is a nonprofit charitable corporation established in 2017 to support mental health initiatives aiding young people in greater Ithaca and Tompkins County. It supports programs and projects; raises awareness and fights the stigma around mental illness and treatment; advances a “zero suicide” ethos in the community; and serves as a community advocate for young people struggling with mental illness.
The Sophie Fund works closely with local government authorities, nonprofit agencies, university administrators, youth organizations, and mental health specialists in efforts aimed at achieving tangible results. Through a fund set up at the Community Foundation of Tompkins County in April 2016, The Sophie Fund provides financial grants to organizations.
