What is Imprints?
Imprints is a solution for people who want to get involved in local giving. Its mission is to leverage the talents and resources of aspiring philanthropists to make personal and collective impacts in Chester County and beyond by offering meaningful experiences to engage in sustainable philanthropy.
 

*******************************************************************************

 

Why We're Doing This
A new generation of philanthropic donors is emerging throughout the United States. Compared with generations that came before them, members of this generation:

-Desire to get engaged in meaningful, authentic and committed ways
-Demonstrate an entrepreneurial approach to giving money by seeing how they can affect the return on their social investment through their own skills, money and abilities
-Want to be in control of when and how they give
-Want to witness the impact of their giving and want to be part of the change they seek


The Chester County Community Foundation seeks to engage all people in its efforts to improve Chester County through legacy philanthropy.

 

 

     


What Do Imprints Members Do?
Giving Circles
-Pool donations and direct it to a collectively selected nonprofit to make a bigger difference.

Adopt-A-Nonprofit
-Members work as pro bono consulting teams with a selected non-profit for a year, offering executive coaching, leadership development, financial planning, and human resource management.
- Fundraiser Flash Mobs: Mobilize members, colleagues, and friends to attend fundraising events selected by members.

- Organizations we have supported through these efforts include VEP and Wings for Success.

Support Imprints
Give an annual donation that supports local giving and the permanent Imprints Fund to benefit local charities. Since 2009, we’ve raised nearly $30,000 to establish the fund while giving grants to exemplary organizations, such as Wings for Success, Interfaith Housing Assistance Corporation, Chester County OIC, Maysie’s Farm Conservation Center, Chester County Food Bank, Coatesville Community Food Co-Op, and The Garage Youth Center.
