Nominations are open for James J. Byrnes Awards for Excellence

Nominations are now being accepted for Tompkins Trust Company’s 2021 James J. Byrnes Awards for Excellence, an annual program that recognizes outstanding individuals and volunteer-based non-profit organizations for their contributions in Tompkins County.

A monetary award will be donated to local charitable organizations from the bank’s endowment fund through the Legacy Foundation of Tompkins County. The honorees will each designate their award to not-for-profit organizations of their choice.

Nominees may be a group of individuals presenting a key volunteer element of a local non-profit organization or local individuals performing humanitarian community service.

Candidates for the award should be those who generously volunteer time and effort on an ongoing basis to activities that help others in Tompkins County. They should make a significant contribution towards improving the quality of life for others either as a major component of a non-profit organization or through individual efforts.

Nominations must be received by July 6.
