A Story of Local Giving

Seeing the community grow and thrive has always been important to Cory and his family. 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. After many years of partnership with the Foundation, the family made the decision to establish the Fasold Family Donor Advised Fund to honor their family legacy and celebrate Cory and Diane's 39th wedding anniversary.

"Community giving is a way of thinking. We want to set an example for others to follow. It is comforting to know our fund was created so it will impact others forever. We feel that most often the biggest satisfaction in giving is realized by the giver!" (Cory Fasold, Fundholder)

Sunbury's Mission

With more than $3 million in assets from the sale of the Sunbury Hospital in 2005, Sunbury's goal was to improve healthcare in the local community.

After affiliating with the Community Giving Foundation in 2006, Sunbury continued to provide for charitable healthcare needs and expanded its mission to meet a multitude of charitable needs in the greater Sunbury area.

Through Community Giving Foundation: Sunbury, donors are establishing meaningful impact both now and into the future.

"Your partnership can help cement a charitable legacy right here, and help promote a stronger, healthier community through your contributions." (Adam Purdy, Former Board Member)
