This was the very first fund of The Luzerne Foundation. The founding board members felt it was critical to have a pool of unrestricted or general interest assets to best serve the various and ever-changing needs in Luzerne County.
The Fund makes grants in seven key areas:
- Social Services
- Education and Scholarships
- Arts and Culture
- Neighborhoods and Community Development
- Youth Issues
- Historic Preservation and the Environment
- Health and Wellness
Over the past 25 years the needs addressed have evolved as our community needs have changed – and over 613 grants have been distributed. Your donations to the Fund for Luzerne County is combined with those from many other donors enabling the Grants Committee of the Luzerne Foundation Board to meet current and future needs. In addition, the nonprofits receiving grants from the Foundation are held accountable for the use of those funds – assuring your donation is put to the best use.
Thank you for supporting the Fund for Luzerne County and the Luzerne Foundation. Together we are Here for Good.
