George T. Walker Charitable Fund

The late George Walker of Monroe County, PA discussed his charitable goals with his professional advisors in 2005, creating the parameters for a charitable fund at the Foundation which would be funded by bequest upon his passing.  The George T. Walker Charitable Fund was established with his bequest in 2011.  Grants from the Fund are made to Mt. Pocono United Methodist Church; Effort United Methodist Church; the Salvation Army of East Stroudsburg; the American Red Cross of East Stroudsburg; St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital; Deborah Heart and Lung Center; and Guiding Eyes for the Blind.  Mr. Walker specified that the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation has complete discretion, each year, regarding the amounts to be granted to each of these charitable organizations as well as the specific programs to be funded by grants from the Fund.
