Reach Out Lakota 20th Anniversary Ribbon Cutting EDGE Shamrock Shuffle


The Community Foundation has been working to identify the most pressing needs in our community amid the coronavirus outbreak. We've been speaking with West Chester Township officials, Reach Out Lakota, local hospitals, and Lakota Schools about what they are facing and how the community can help. Donations to the COMMUNITY HEALTH FUND will be used to support the purchase of medical supplies (gloves & masks), food staples for Reach Out's pantry, cleaning supplies, bedding, and groceries for local fire stations to ensure these first responders remain healthy.
Please consider donating to help right here in our community. Now is the time to pull together. Thank you!


For the healthy and safety of our employees and the community, Community Foundation offices will remain closed beginning Monday, March 16th until further notice. Employees will be working remotely. Email will be the best form of communication during this time, but we have forwarded our phone lines as well. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all adjust to this "new normal".
Karen Gibbs, Director of Programs & Marketing
Erin Clemons, President & CEO
Nancy Fister, VP Finance
