Berks County Community Foundation administers charitable funds. Each fund is known as a “component fund” of Berks County Community Foundation, and as such is granted nonprofit status and is subject to the rules and regulations governing nonprofit organizations.
Some individual donors or volunteer groups may wish to organize fundraising events, direct mail campaigns, and/or other types of solicitations to raise money for a particular fund.
The Community Foundation, unfortunately, does not have the staff to assist directly with all fundraising activities undertaken for the benefit of a fund. However, we support a donor’s commitment and enthusiasm for these activities and offer our advice for the proper and efficient management of all fundraising.
