The Ian & Patty Carlis Fund

In 2016, Ian & Patty Carlis established this donor-advised fund to provide grants to charitable programs and organizations in the Lehigh Valley region.

The Carlis couple has been serving the community in a plethora of ways, from establishing this fund to their roles as educators.  Patty Carlis taught creative drama and was an active member in the performing arts department at Muhlenberg College.  Ian Carlis was a dentist at Bethlehem Smiles, served as a President of the dental staff of Lehigh Valley Hospital where he taught as a clinical instructor, and was a member of the Continuing Dental Education Committee.

The Carlis family’s community commitment will continue to be recognized through the establishment of this fund.

Hamilton Street, Suite 310, Allentown, PA 18101.  Gifts can also be made via credit card by clicking the PayPal 'Donate' button below.  A PayPal account is not required to make an online gift to the Fund.
