Sunbury Family Promotes Community Giving Through New Fund

August 29, 2022

Community Giving Foundation: Sunbury is pleased to announce the creation of the Fasold Family Donor Advised Fund, which will support charitable interests in Sunbury, Herndon, Line Mountain, and surrounding communities.

Cory Fasold was born and raised in the Sunbury area. His family was introduced to the Foundation by their dear friend and mentor, Robert Mertz, who was one of the originators of the Foundation’s Sunbury affiliate. When Cory was invited to join the Sunbury Board in 2014, he directly saw the positive impact of charitable grants on a wide range of organizations in the community and was impressed with the dedication and care shown by the Foundation staff in their work.

Seeing their community grow and thrive has always been important to the Fasolds. After many years of partnership with the Foundation, the Fasolds made the decision to establish the Fasold Family Fund to honor their family legacy and celebrate Cory and Diane’s 39th wedding anniversary. Together with their children, Linsey and Tanner, the family is passionate about supporting organizations and programs in the Sunbury area that benefit children, conservation efforts, and care for animals. In this way, the Fasold family – both now and through future generations – will impact the community they call home in perpetuity.

“Community giving is a way of thinking. We want to set an example for others to follow. We are blessed to have financial resources to share, and it is comforting to know our fund was created so it will impact others forever. Giving to organizations who promote our values and help those in our local community is very rewarding. We feel that most often the biggest satisfaction in giving is realized by the giver!” write the Fasolds.

Contributions can be made to the Fasold Family Fund online here, or mail to the Community Giving Foundation, Attn: Fasold Family Fund, 725 West Front Street, Berwick PA 18603. You can tell your community giving story by giving to a fund at the Foundation. It’s a wonderful way to honor a person or business or carry on the memory of someone important to you. Learn how you can leave your own legacy of giving.

Sunbury is an affiliate of the Community Giving Foundation, which manages over 320 charitable funds and makes grant investments throughout the region to improve the quality of life in the Central Susquehanna area.
