Annual Report 2019-20 | Lehigh Valley Community Foundation

Message from the Board Chair and President & CEO

During the unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation demonstrated much needed leadership throughout the community.  Staff and board members of LVCF served the community by increasing its grantmaking and human resources in support of a wide range of needs while continuing to sharpen its focus on improving the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations, responding to relief needs, and leading a region-wide campaign to have everyone counted in the U.S. census.

The Nonprofit Effectiveness Program continued to evolve into a community-leading effort aimed at nonprofit sustainability.  Staff and community participants worked diligently to find best approaches to strengthening critically important nonprofit organizations. It is the ultimate goal of the Foundation, through the work of this Fund to strengthen the Lehigh Valley nonprofits so they can prosper and be impactful for years to come.

In March 2020, LVCF established the LVCF COVID-19 Response Fund to unite with individuals who have an interest in giving back to our local community during this time of crisis. The Fund supports a regional, coordinated effort to rapidly deploy resources to community-based, front line nonprofit organizations in the Lehigh Valley as well as distribute grants directly to nonprofits.  Through the generosity of our donors, we have raised over $200,000 for pandemic response efforts and beyond. We now turn to recovery and reimagining the nonprofit sector in a post-COVID 19 environment. 

Finally, the Community Foundation staff and board provided critical community leadership in joining efforts aimed at ensuring accurate counts during the 2020 Census. LVCF joined a statewide group of community foundation leaders by partnering with local Complete Count Committees across the region. These efforts proved to be successful as both Northampton and Lehigh counties met their respective goals for Census counts.

At the end of 2020, we thanked two Governors who had a major role in the growth and impact of the Foundation. Meredith Retalliata and Bonnie Coyle both generously served the Lehigh Valley and beyond by giving their time and talents to the efforts of the Board of Governors of LVCF.  At the same time Monica Brooks, Tom Groves and Charlotte Hartmann-Hansen were welcomed in 2020.

Once again, we thank you for your continued support of philanthropy in our community.  We are proud of the leadership role the Foundation is playing and we look forward to working with you in the future. This annual report takes a look back to Fiscal Year 2020.
