Support Your Community
As a tool for charitable giving, the Community Foundation offers the advantages of tax benefits, flexibility and personalization, administrative convenience, sound fiscal management, and community knowledge and expertise. The Foundation has the ability to accept contributions—large and small, complex or simple—from different types of donors with different types of charitable visions and goals. Gifts can be made via check, or by credit card using PayPal. Gifts of securities are also conveniently accepted.
For more complex ways of giving including real estate, personal property, and life insurance, or to establish a planned gift, please contact Carrie Krug Nedick, Director of Donor Services at (610) 351-5353 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail) with any questions as you start building your legacy in our community.

Make an Unrestricted Gift to Help Support the Community Foundation
Unrestricted gifts to the Community Foundation can be made by submitting a check, payable to the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, 840 West 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 support the general operating expenses of the Foundation.
Charitable Donation Deduction
For taxable years beginning in 2021, taxpayers who do not itemize deductions may take a deduction for cash donations of up to $300 made to qualifying organizations. The CARES Act revised the charitable donation deduction rules to encourage donations following a decline after the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017.
The official registration and financial information of Lehigh Valley Community Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll-free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999.
