At the Scranton Area Community Foundation our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all people in Northeastern Pennsylvania through the development of organized philanthropy. Over the years, millions of dollars in grants have been made to assist the educational, human service, environmental, civic, and arts & cultural organizations in our area.
