The Bradford County Impact Fund, one of over 100 funds held at the Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers, wishes to thank the community for its support and announce three Bradford County Impact Fund grants that were awarded during 2018.
The Bradford Impact Fund sponsored an event – attended by people from the community – which was instrumental in raising awareness and broadening the reach of the Community Foundation. The event provided an opportunity for attendees to learn about the important work of the Community Foundation and the Bradford County Impact Fund and was held at the Riverstone Inn, Towanda.
Four grants were given this year: $600 to Allen F. Pierce Free Library, $250 to the Bradford County Library, and $250 to Serve, Inc. The money granted will assist with ongoing programmatic needs of the organizations.
“The great thing about the Bradford County Impact Fund is that it gives local people the ability to address local causes,” said Suzanne Lee, president. She added, “Building a permanent fund such as the Impact Fund means that every year grants will be made to support those who need it most within Bradford County.”
The Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers serves Bradford, Potter, Sullivan, and Tioga Counties in Pa., and Tioga County in N.Y. It is a public charity, incorporated as a non-profit that has been granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS.
The Community Foundation establishes permanent endowment funds from contributions of many individual citizens, corporations, other foundations, other charitable organizations and government agencies for philanthropic purposes. As the endowment funds grow, the earnings from these funds is used to make grants to meet identified community needs or fulfill the desire of the donor. Donors can even make recommendations to the Community Foundation of the charitable organizations to receive grants.
