Celebrating 70 years creating charitable connections…


In 2024, the Scranton Area Community Foundation celebrates 70 years of service and impact in our region. Since its founding in 1954, the Foundation has experienced tremendous growth, but one thing remains constant: the Foundation’s success is fueled by the generous support of our donors. Our donors have enabled the Foundation to address critical needs, foster innovation, and empower positive change throughout our community.

As we celebrate this significant milestone, we invite you to tell your story about the Scranton Area Community Foundation and its impact on our community. Your reflections on the Foundation are vital to the story we want to share with our community this year. We also know that words from donors like you are extremely powerful in inspiring the philanthropy of others. Please consider sharing your testimonial through this short survey.

Telling the Foundation’s story through several perspectives is one of the many ways we will celebrate the Foundation’s 70th anniversary. Please stay tuned for more exciting new features, announcements, and things to look forward to in 2024!

In addition to the Foundation’s 70th anniversary, 2024 marks another exciting milestone: the 5th annual NEPA Gives! In the past four years, NEPA Gives has collectively raised over $4M for charitable causes in our region. NEPA Gives will take place on June 6-7, 2024, and charitable funds held at the Scranton Area Community Foundation are welcome to participate. Contact us today for more information about registering your charitable fund to participate in NEPA Gives.
