What We Do

We help plant the seeds of community by assisting donors to carry out their charitable giving through organized philanthropy. By providing a convenient, flexible vehicle for our donors, we are able to help you make a permanent contribution to the community.

We gather information, track local agencies, and monitor the community to determine the unique needs of our community.   Our grant-making facility allow us to pool the charitable donations of many donors into a coordinated investment.   It is through these generous donor contributions that we are able to provide many services and resources that offer long-term benefits for the residents of Lackawanna County.
