Bethlehem 225th Anniversary Fund

Created in 1968 with funds remaining from Bethlehem's 225th anniversary celebration, this Fund was the first broadly charitable fund of the Bethlehem Area Foundation, LVCF’s predecessor organization.  Creation of a permanent community endowment - to meet changing community needs and opportunities - was a specific goal of the 225th anniversary celebration.  The Bethlehem Anniversary Fund has been providing unrestricted annual support for more than 45 years.

Gifts to the Fund can be made by submitting a check, payable to the Bethlehem 225th Anniversary Fund, to the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, 840 W. 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.
