Tioga Downs Regional Community Foundation
Tioga Downs Regional Community Foundation’s (“TDRCF”)1 mission is to promote economic and community development in the counties surrounding Tioga Downs Casino Resort, including:
TDRCF will award $1million a year to 501(c)3 organizations that combat local poverty and community deterioration. The Foundation aims to provide funds to groups that advance charitable, religious, literary, scientific and educational purposes in the target counties.
Grants will be awarded in two grant cycles each year, July and January, with $500,000 being awarded during each grant cycle. Grants will be accepted on a rolling basis and are due May 31st for the July cycle, and November 30th for the January cycle.
