Foundation Introduces New Name & Brand

December 7, 2020

Effective today, the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation has formally changed its name to COMMUNITY GIVING FOUNDATION and introduced a meaningful new logo and website.

New Look. Same Philanthropic Commitment

Committed to enriching the lives of those in the Central Susquehanna region through partnerships with generous donors, fundholders, and local leaders, the Foundation manages nearly 300 charitable funds supporting nonprofit organizations across a 5 1/2 county service area, with combined assets exceeding $61 million (as of December 31, 2020). According to president and CEO Holly Morrison, D.Ed., the change comes as a result of strategic planning with the Foundation board. The new name and look were developed with a dedicated committee of board members and staff over the last year.

“Community Giving Foundation will represent the same personal and professional services our area communities have come to rely on for the last twenty years,” says Morrison. “The goal of our Foundation is to help people create funds that change lives, both now and for years to come. As we continue serving and supporting area nonprofits through the giving spirit of donors and fundholders, we look forward to growing our impact and partnerships with community leaders across our region.”

“All of the words and symbols within our new brand are significant,” adds Morrison. “They have been carefully designed to embody our philanthropic commitment to our region and represent who we are to all of our stakeholders. This new brand communicates everything the Foundation stands for and reinforces our leadership position among regional nonprofits:

  1. Community indicates our essential role in serving communities in our 5 1/2 county service area, as well as the community of generous donors and fundholders that partner in this work.
  2. Giving reflects our emphasis on meeting donors’ charitable intentions to support these communities, which in turn provides vital resources and support for area nonprofits.
  3. Foundation identifies our position of providing a trusted and solid base for community philanthropy in our region.
  4. The Tree in our logo suggests strength and growth, while the gentle arch indicates umbrella support for our communities.”
