what is a community foundation...

The Community Foundation provides a means to build a substantial amount of money over time from the contributions of people of significant wealth and modest means, and to use the income from these funds, in the form of grants, to meet the community’s charitable needs now and into the future. The Community Foundation has three unique features: 
Local expertise - Personalized service - Community convener

 Our Mission...

The Chester County Community Foundation connects people who care with the causes that matter, so their philanthropy makes a difference now and forever.


About us...

Since 1994, the Community Foundation has actively partnered with donors who believe that positive change occurs through effective charitable giving. Today, we manage more than 350 charitable funds started by individuals, families, businesses and nonprofit organizations. Together, these funds represent ordinary people who have made extraordinary commitments to our community.

CCCF strategic plan...

We are happy to share our strategic plan with those whom are interested.

Ben franklin legacy society...
The Ben Franklin Legacy Society recognizes all those who have notified the Chester County Community Foundation that they have included any fund of the Community Foundation in their will or other deferred giving plan.

The Society derives its name from the Benjamin Franklin Trust which Ben himself set up in the 1790's, to be distributed 200 years after his death.  Two centuries later in 1996, Chester County Community Foundation's first planned gift was a portion of this original trust.
