Celebrating 70 years of creating charitable connections!


This year, as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of The Scranton Area Community Foundation, we reflect on the incredible journey we’ve shared together and the strides that we have made in making a difference for our community.  

We’re honored to have the privilege of serving this great region for seven decades, and grateful to the individuals, families, and organizations who have partnered with us along the way to improve the quality of life for our friends and neighbors.

Since our 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 donors like you! Your trust and generosity has enabled the Foundation to address critical needs, foster innovation, and empower positive change throughout our communities.  We are honored to have earned your trust, and to partner with you in helping to carry out your charitable goals. 

In commemoration of this significant milestone, we invite you to share your stories and testimonials about your experiences with, knowledge of, and perspective on  the Scranton Area Community Foundation. Whether you’ve been a donor, a grant recipient, a volunteer, or have otherwise been involved with our organization in the community, we want to hear from you!

Your stories are the heart of our foundation, and they inspire us to continue our mission of enhancing the quality of life in our community for generations to come. By sharing your experiences, you help us showcase the impact of our efforts and inspire others to join us in creating positive change.

If you have a story or testimonial you would like to share, please use the link below to follow our short survey or email us at by May 15, 2024. We may feature select submissions on our website, social media channels, or other communication materials as part of our 70th-anniversary celebration.

If we feature your story throughout our anniversary year in 2024, we’ll give you an opportunity to award a special grant in the amount of $1,000 in your honor to benefit a local nonprofit organization of your choice!*

Thank you for being an integral part of our journey. It is because of you that we have been able to accomplish so much, and we look forward to many more years of generosity, innovation, and impact.
