Community Foundation- https://comm-foundation.academicworks.com

The Community Foundation of Western PA & Eastern OH has one guiding purpose, that is to help individuals give back to a region for which they care about deeply. Our founding fund, the O’Brien Children Memorial Fund, started it all by raising $53, 997 during a fundraiser in 1981. Since then we have helped donors grant over $90 million into the community.

Because nobody knows a community better than people that live and work in it on a daily basis, our foundation created its affiliate system. These affiliates work to help individuals set up donor advised, field of interest, donor designated, and scholarship funds that will support the community now and into the future. http://www.comm-foundation.org.
