Bill and Connie Umphred established this Fund to support specific organizations they hold dear to their hearts both now and in perpetuity, most notably the United Way of Wyoming Valley and the Osterhout Free Library.
The Foundation has many donors who encourage their children to carry on their own tradition of philanthropy. An advised fund is a great resource to assist you in introducing your children to philanthropy.
When the time is right for your family, The Luzerne Foundation staff can meet with you to clarify shared family values and goals. We can help you develop a value statement and set of goals that will guide future grant making from your fund.
