The goal of Tioga County Seniors Foundation is to enhance the quality of life of senior citizens living in Tioga County, New York. This is accomplished through grants awarded to agencies that provide support for the needs, interests, safety and comfort of the county’s senior population. Since 1982, a total of $1,465,827 has been awarded to grant requestors. Typically, grant awards are made to those applicants providing direct services to senior citizens. For example, over the last 10 years Senior Citizens Foundation has contributed $85,420 to the libraries in Tioga County to support librarians’ requests for items such as large print books and books on CD. Senior Citizens Foundation also gladly supports the requests of the eleven senior citizen clubs located in Tioga County. These clubs often become the main link to other people and services for our many aging citizens. Since the year 2000, Senior Citizens Foundation has put $86,300 into the activities of the senior citizen clubs found throughout Tioga County.  To learn more about the Tioga County Seniors Foundation visit .
