The Bethel Park Community Foundation (the "BPCF") is a non-profit 501(c)(3) which embraces a philosophy of local philanthropy. Tax-deductible contributions made to the BPCF are applied to fund local life-quality initiatives as determined through our grant application process. Our scope embraces donors from all economic levels, from both within and beyond the boundaries of the Bethel Park community.
Established in accordance with these parameters and staffed exclusively by volunteers, the BPCF elected to concentrate its activities in the following five principal areas of enrichment:
Opportunities in education for citizens of all ages
Expanded recreational and leisure time activities
Increase exposure to the fine and performing arts
Community Health and Safety
What began as an idealistic hope in 1994, has evolved into an active Foundation that continues to touch the lives of nearly every Bethel Park resident and visitor. None of this would be possible without the generous support of the Bethel Park community.
Donating to the Foundation you may designate the BPCF as the recipient of your United Way donation by entering the Contributor's Choice Agency Code 892191.
Stewardship of the funds is a priority for all the Foundation trustees who review and discuss every grant submitted to the Foundation. Through 2020 the Foundation awarded grants totaling over one million dollars.
