At the Community Foundation, we are fortunate to work with dynamic philanthropists interested in learning more about how philanthropy strengthens communities. Your continued generosity allows us to make an impact.
As your partner in philanthropy, our aim is to make the grantmaking process easy and flexible for you. We provide personalized support via our staff philanthropic advisors to help you make grants through your fund.
Family and Individual Fund Advisors are urged to attend any of our Smart Giving Series, designed to illuminate and inform about issues impacting Chester County philanthropy.
Emerging philanthropists are urged to join the PHILANTHROPIC LEARNING ACTION NETWORK (PLAN) and get involved in giving circles, site visits, and nonprofit grantmaking discussions.
The Community Foundation’s Enhanced Suite of Services for Family & Individual Philanthropy helps donors more deeply address their charitable giving. The Center provides customized services to help you be more strategic in recommending grants from your fund, engage multiple generations in giving, and more deeply discern the value of philanthropy giving in the community.
