Annual Fund

Contributions to the Annual Fund are unrestricted and allow Family & Children’s Service to respond to the current and on-going needs of those we serve.

The James G. Johnston Fund for the Uninsured and Underinsured

Established in 2011, this fund helps to ensure that all clients in need of mental health care are able to turn to Family & Children's Service of Ithaca's mental health clinic regardless of the insurance coverage, or lack thereof. This fund was established by the F&CS Board of Directors in 2011 to honor former President & CEO, James G Johnston (Jim) and his passionate dedication and commitment to providing affordable, high-quality mental health services for children, families, and adults in Tompkins County.

The Spero Family Fund for Child Psychiatry

Established in 2004, this fund allows children who are experiencing significant mental health challenges to receive child psychiatry services. These services include psychiatric evaluations and medication management by a professional Child Psychiatrist at Family & Children’s Service. Jim and Ceil Spero, who helped to establish this fund in 2004, believe passionately in providing quality psychiatric care for families who need it most.
