PHILANTHROPY AND THE CURRENT ECONOMIC CRISIS

The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. has been affected by the economic crisis as has every non-profit that is working in the community. The Foundation is redoubling its efforts to encourage philanthropy. We encourage volunteers, donors, and friends of the Foundation to help open doors and introduce potential supporters to the Foundation.

We ask the donors to explore making challenge or matching gifts to stimulate giving from others and multiply the impact of their gifts. We ask donors to share the latest philanthropic information with friends and colleagues who may not have considered giving. It is more important than ever to assist in strengthening the community.

We ask donors to explore supporting the Foundation's initiatives that support the public and the non-profit community like the Arts & Culture Initiative project, which is a collaborative effort to create a shared county-wide vision that will result in a Development Plan for the future.

The Civic Engagement Project is also an initiative that will provide people 55 years of age and better with opportunities to continue to use their skills in the non-profit communities or the public arena. Both these projects have some grant support but must raise matching dollars from the community in order to achieve their goals.

We will continue to work to increase the visibility of the Foundation and its programs to be ready to assist new donors and current donors in their efforts to achieve their Philanthropic goals.

Remember that The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. can assist donors to achieve their philanthropic goals through planned gifts, wills and bequest, gifts of property and insurance, IRA transfers and permanent endowments. Call 484-532-7387 for detailed information.

SECOND CHALLENGE GRANT:

Two Montco Foundations Partner Again to Create an Innovative Grant Partnership
"Family and Community Foundation Partnership
Jointly Issue a Challenge Grant for a Local Health Organization"


The Genuardi Family Foundation and The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. announced today that they have again partnered to jointly issue a $15,000 challenge grant to VNA—Community Services, Inc. in Abington. The two Foundations joined resources last year to collaboratively make a challenge to the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, who successfully leveraged the opportunity to cultivate 11 new major gifts, and inspired the creation of a new long-term major gift campaign.

Under the terms of the current challenge, the VNA must raise $15,000 in contributions from individuals, community groups and businesses. The minimum qualifying gift amount will be $1,000, pledged by new donors, donors returning after a lapse, or donors who are significantly increasing their gifts. All funds raised will support the VNA’s general operations. The Foundations’ intent is that the VNA will use this as an opportunity to expand its base of donors able to make significant gifts, contributing to the VNA’s continued financial stability.

"The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. is interested in addressing significant non-profit issues through the strategic investment of funds to build a stronger non-profit sector," said Virginia Frantz, President and CEO of the community foundation. "This effort—a $15,000 challenge grant that hinges on the VNA raising the matching $15,000—is an unprecedented and creative tool for both foundations to advance their missions. The VNA plays a significant role in Montgomery County. Both foundations feel these grant dollars can assist the VNA in the development of new ‘friends’ whose substantial and continued support will ensure the VNA’s future."

The Genuardi Family Foundation and The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. each are committed to providing strategic support to their community partner organizations, endeavoring to build stronger communities. Virginia Frantz, President & CEO of The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. and Meredith A. Huffman, Executive Director of the Genuardi Family Foundation presented this opportunity to their respective Boards as an innovative approach to improving the long-term fundraising capacity of the VNA, whose nearly century-long service in Montgomery County has earned the organization a reputation of excellence in the provision of health services.

"Our Board was very pleased for the opportunity to once again partner with Montgomery County Foundation to achieve a greater impact with our pooled resources," stated Huffman. "The barriers to collaboration were minor, compared to the potential benefits of this partnership and the outcome to which we aspire: helping the VNA cultivate a pipeline of major supporters. We are excited to be a part of the VNA’s fundraising success."

"We are very grateful to the Genuardi Family Foundation and The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. for their confidence in our agency and for this exciting opportunity," stated Richard Cirko, Executive Director of VNA—Community Services. "With their support, as we kick off this special fundraising campaign, we will focus our efforts on educating the community on the valuable services we provide as we continue to enrich the quality of life of those we serve."
