LV Community Foundation's 50th Anniversary on LV Discourse


Host Sally Handlon welcomes guests from the non-profit Lehigh Valley Community Foundation to discuss, “A Reflection on the Community Foundation’s 50th Anniversary," findings, and next steps. Sally's guests are Bernie Story, LVCF President and CEO, as well as Dr. Chris Borick, LVCF Lötter Fellow and Director of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion.

What if a non-profit celebrated a milestone anniversary by giving back to the community it serves? That is exactly what the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation did.

To celebrate their 50th in 2017, the foundation developed the Spark Grant Initiative providing money to 29 organizations supporting 6 of the most prominent Lehigh Valley needs–Mental and Behavioral Health, Cultural Enrichment, Food and Housing Access, Environmental and Sustainability, Human Trafficking, and Veterans Affairs along with providing potential paths for the allocation of resources.
