Bloomsburg Highlights Giving Stories

September 7, 2022

The Community Giving Foundation: Bloomsburg held its annual event on September 7th to share stories of community giving and impact. The breakfast, held at Monty’s, was an inspiring time of togetherness to celebrate the partnerships and dedication that make this philanthropic spirit thrive in the Bloomsburg area.

During the event, Bloomsburg board member Elizabeth Dowd spoke about the feeling of community in the Bloomsburg area and the impact of the Bloomsburg funds created by donors who continue to invest in its well-being and future. A list of Bloomsburg funds and 2022 grant recipients were included in this year’s event handout. Foundation President/CEO Holly Morrison recognized the dedicated individuals that make up the Bloomsburg board and shared about the Community Giving Foundation’s commitment to personalization and relationship-building. Fred Gaffney told the story of Community Giving Foundation: Bloomsburg’s affiliation with the regional Foundation and it’s impact felt by nonprofit organizations, local businesses, residents, and community partners.

What’s your community giving story? What legacy do you want to leave in your community? Guests were prompted to consider these questions as everyone was given an opportunity to share their own giving story at their tables. Through special giving cards and the many resources compiled in the Foundation’s Giving Workbook, discovering your passions and philanthropic goals has never been easier. Learn more here.

The Foundation was inspired and uplifted by the stories and conversations that were shared. It is only through the unity of each donor, board member, nonprofit organization, and community partner that we can continue to make a difference—For Good. For Ever.
