Whether donors choose to make an outright, annual gift or set up a planned gift that will last in perpetuity, their generosity has tremendous influence on our community. Because their gifts will have a lasting impact, First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania has chosen to honor donors through several recognition societies:
- Silver Circle Society: Substantial, ongoing giving by individuals, families, businesses or organizations to the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania is changing our community and our region forever. The circle - an icon of unity, infinity and completion - is an appropriate representation of the lasting power of community endowments and the collective legacy of all FCFP partners - especially that of our generous donors. The Silver Circle Society recognizes outright lifetime giving of $25,000 or more by a living donor.
- Bronze Bridge Society: Gifts from our generous donors - individuals, families, businesses or organizations - allow the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania to meet the many changing needs of our community and our region. Donations of $1,000 or more, annually, build bridges - connecting donors to causes they care about; joining nonprofit agencies with those in need and channeling new ideas and visions into positive, lasting results.
- Legacy Society: The First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania has created a Legacy Society to recognize individuals who have named the Community Foundation as the beneficiary of any type of planned or deferred gift. By designating the Community Foundation as a beneficiary, you are ensuring the future of our community and making a difference forever. The gift may come to us for unrestricted use - to meet the changing and most urgent needs of the community - or for a named fund - to serve a specific purpose or to benefit a specific charity. Either way, the impact is lasting. Donors who are eligible may download and complete the Legacy Society form.
- Door Opener Society: Recognizes professional advisors who have helped their clients realize their charitable dreams. We congratulate the following members of the Door Opener Society and thank them for their continued support of the Foundation.
