The Power to Start a Legacy
The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County responds to the ever changing needs of our county by working as a community matchmaker in the areas of grantmaking, community leadership and donor development. CFWC is committed to building better communities, now and forever.
A half-century of history is just the beginning for the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center, according to speakers at a 50th anniversary open house held Oct. 25 at the facility. The open house provided guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with the facility itself and with representatives of the organizations that currently keep offices there, including The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County.
Officials from Westmoreland and Allegheny counties have already established complete count committees, which are working to raise funds to aid local businesses and educational institutions. So far, the Westmoreland committee has raised $50,000 to be used for community outreach in regards to the census, said Phil Koch, executive director of the Westmoreland Community Foundation. Koch said the original $25,000 grant came from an anonymous donor and was matched by the Pittsburgh Foundation.
