The Community Foundation Model

Giving is more impactful than it ever was before. We all want to ensure our chosen charities are benefiting as much as possible from our support because so many of them are in desperate need of our dollars. Giving through your local community foundation can protect the perpetuity of your gifts, ensuring they benefit the community for years to come.

Here are just a few reasons why you should consider reaching your charitable goals through the Community Giving Foundation:

1. We focus on local needs. With deep roots and strong leadership in local communities across the Central Susquehanna region since 1999, we have a broad understanding of local needs and where there are opportunities to invest and create lasting change.

2. We foster highly-personalized philanthropy. With our stewardship and expertise, we offer exactly the level of services and involvement that you desire to fulfill your philanthropic goals. We currently manage over 350 different charitable funds for families, individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations.

3. We invest to protect your charitable giving. With an experienced investment team and asset manager (Wilmington Trust) and a wide variety of investment types, we operate on a 16-quarter rolling average to protect your giving in the good and bad times.


You have your own community giving story. Our Foundation recently created a unique Giving Workbook to walk you through the process of discovering what you want your giving story to be. Click here to learn more!
