Giving Through the Schuylkill Area Community Foundation


We understand that each donor has specific desires, financial considerations and charitable wishes. SACF makes every effort to be flexible with the types of funds and ways to give to make their dreams come true.

You can donate to an existing fund at the Foundation or create a fund in your name or for an organization you care about. Giving to the Friends of the Foundation Fund means you support the residents and nonprofit organizations of Schuylkill County. The grants from this fund are awarded annually through an application process and allow the Foundation’s Committee to make recommendations to the Board of Directors.

Having a fund with SACF is a wonderful way to support the educational aspirations of county residents and to strengthen nonprofits you care about in the future.

Our staff handles all the administrative tasks, including check writing, reporting requirements, tax returns and annual audits. We also monitor all grants to make sure that they were used as specified by the donors.

As you can see, our goal is simplicity, accessibility and convenience for you to work with the Community Foundation. We can give you an ideal way to easily give back to the community and make a positive difference in the lives of people.
