The Montgomery County Foundation

The Montgomery County Foundation is a non-governmental, non-profit community organization whose purpose is to help donors achieve their philanthropic ideals.

Our Vision is to be a recognized leader and catalyst in philanthropic matters for Montgomery County and surrounding area by serving as a resource for donors, charitable non-profit agencies and the general public through a proactive program of asset growth, management and distribution of funds that reflect the unique knowledge of a commitment to the Community.

We accomplish this by a process that assists donors in the development of their philanthropic vision by encompassing the permanent yet flexible characteristics of community foundations, which ultimately support innovative ideas that strengthen the non-profit organization's ability to serve its communities.

We provide donors, their families and advisors the resources they will need to help them achieve their charitable dreams.

The Community Foundation is ‘a Catalyst for Community Solutions’. As well as assisting donors to make an impact, the Foundation focuses on community issues and needs. It convenes non-profits, provides educational programs, fiscal sponsorships for civic groups and new nonprofits.

Women and Leadership:
Striving and Thriving in the Workplace

The Women and Leadership Forum: Striving and Thriving in the Workplace, hosted by The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc., drew over 200 attendees and 34 sponsors on Thursday, December 7, 2016 to The Presidential in East Norriton. Featured were three superb keynote speakers who addressed topics such as emotional intelligence, leadership presence and conflict resolution to an audience of both current and aspiring leaders from the nonprofit, private, public and educational sectors in the region. What made this compelling convening uniquely valuable was the setting to explore workplace challenges and opportunities as they relate to a woman's personal well-being and growth and how that most effectively translates to her professional success and to the strengthening of the field she is committed to serving increasingly well. Dr. Kathleen Owens, President, Gwynedd Mercy University, was honored with the Foundation's Woman of Distinction Award.
