Philanthropic Services

Connecting People Who Care...

To Causes that Matter.

For more than 50 years, we’ve partnered with individuals and families, professional advisors and corporations, and nonprofits who have trusted us with creating more than 260 philanthropic funds. Thanks to them and their generosity, we’ve awarded over 100 million in grants. Today, the Foundation manages more than $65 million in assets to drive community-wide change in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

The Community Foundation leverages donors’ resources with other like-minded people who care to have a greater impact than any one of us could make alone. From personalized foundations, unique asset gifts and legacy planning, we manage a diverse portfolio of charitable giving solutions.
