Berks County Community Foundation helps people find the best way to make charitable gifts to support their community.
Established in 1994, the Community Foundation is a public benefit, tax exempt, 501(c)(3) corporation overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors who set the strategic goals of the organization. They facilitate the progress toward these goals by staying alert for opportunities to improve the quality of life in Berks County and assist in identifying ways the philanthropic sector can contribute.
The Junior League of Gaston County, in partnership with the Central Family YMCA, has put the Y Life Program back on running track. It’s been operating for eight years, but has lost funding. Now, Junior League stepped in to help it continue.
