An essential element of the mission of The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County is to encourage philanthropy and assist local residents to become donors. The CFWC staff and directors work with our donors to reach their philanthropic goals which directly impact and benefit Westmoreland County. Potential donors are matched with non-profits whose missions align with the donor’s area of intended giving. CFWC strives to attract new donors to build an established legacy in Westmoreland County as well as establish new charitable funds which will continue to generate definitive change in the community.

Create a Fund

One of our region's greatest assests is our philanthropic tradition. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the proud history of The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County. Since 1995, over 190 funds have been established at CFWC. These funds represent individuals from all walks of life who share a passion for giving and a deep commitment to making this community better- today and in the future.

As a donor at CFWC, you become an important component of the rich history of charitable giving in western Pennsylvania.

Our professional staff can assist you and your professional advisors at no charge and help create a plan that fulfills your philanthropic and financial goals. Whether it is teaching children about philanthropy or supporting a favortie charitable program while presenting additional retirement income, we can help determine your best options.

An endowment fund at CFWC- established during your lifetime or through a bequest or other planned gift- provides community engagement, grantmaking and a legacy of good will.

There are many reasons for creating a fund at CFWC. The motivation of each donor is different, but the outcome is the same. Our donors continue the legacy of generosity and caring that are hallmarks of our community.
