Berks County Community Foundation does not fund special event sponsorships, table purchases, program advertisements/listings, or tickets.
There are two exceptions to this rule:
(1) when a current foundation board or staff member, or the foundation itself, is being honored or
(2) when a current foundation staff member sits on a group’s board or committee.
In those cases, we may consider a program listing and/or table sponsorship.
The Community Foundation supports nonprofit organizations through the distribution of grants from a variety of funds created by local donors. These grants support organizations and causes at more significant levels than those ordinarily sought through event sponsorship.
To learn more about grant opportunities that may be available for your organization, explore our website or sign up for our monthly e-newsletter by clicking the button at the bottom of this page. The newsletter features the only regular, comprehensive listing of all of our current funding opportunities.
Note that the Community Foundation may choose to advertise in certain publications from time to time as part of its own marketing efforts.
