A Very Charitable Year
The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains is pleased to report that 2014 proved to be a very charitable year. Thanks to individual, family, and corporate donations The Community Foundation received more than $1,578,000 to provide charitable and education assistance. 17 new charitable endowments were formed in 2014 to provide assistance to such worthy causes as education, land conservation, low-income housing, school districts, libraries, nature centers, public gardens, and other community projects. The Community Foundation worked for donors from England to Texas and provided charitable grants to organizations reaching from New York City to Grosse Point, Michigan. Overall, The Community Foundation is now managing more than $10 Million in assets comprising 175 permanent charitable endowments.
We thank our twelve corporate donors that in 2014 collectively contributed more than $865,000 toward our Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit program. This helped provide tuition assistance to deserving Pre-K through 12th Grade students attending schools in Bradford, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties. We also helped special projects in the Montrose Area and Susquehanna Community School Districts.
The Community Foundation is pleased to assist our donors with their charitable goals. On their behalf we are proud of our accomplishments in 2014 and look forward to continued charitable growth in 2015.
