#PhilanthropyFriday: Celebrating National Community Foundation Week and 65 Years

Scranton Area Community Foundation is joining the nationwide celebration to recognize the local impact of community foundations this week. 

For more than a century, community foundations have served as a trusted partner and resource whose effect can be seen in the lives of millions and in the vibrant neighborhoods that continue to thrive through their mission-driven work. During Community Foundation Week, we join the network of 900+ community foundations who come together to share and reflect on the stories of impact over the past year.

This year, the Scranton Area Community Foundation is proud to celebrate 65 years serving the community as a steward, a grantmaker, a charitable resource, and a catalyst for change and growth.

We are proud to be accredited with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations®—the highest standards for philanthropic excellence. National Standards says that we meet the most rigorous standards in philanthropy and is a promise to our community that we’ll continue to do this good work together, right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Our accreditation provides assurance that we have sound policies and practices in place. In short, it means we meet the highest standards for local giving. The National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations® program was established in 2000 in cooperation with the Council on Foundations. For more information about National Standards, visit www.cfstandards.orgWe are proud to be your community foundation. And we are proud to celebrate 65 years in 2019.

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Scranton Cultural Center for our 65th Anniversary Community Celebration as we celebrate the many accomplishments made possible through the generosity of our donors over the past 65 years while also featuring various community partners and charitable funds that have made a significant impact on our region in 2019.
