FCFP is North Central PA’s most established vehicle for local charitable giving. Our mission is a big one, and our work can seem complex. But ultimately, it comes down to inspiring community giving and investing in community good.

What We Do
To Inspire Community Giving —
We partner with philanthropists.
A lot of folks in our community want to give, and yet they don’t know where to start—or how to make it meaningful. Our team works with donors to learn their passions, know their goals, and devise a plan that brings fulfillment.
We manage donor-driven funds.
Financial stewardship is our heritage and our practice. We’ve specialized in charitable giving for more than a century, and we manage more than $100 million in assets. Our stable return grows the money for the next generation.
To Invest in Community Good —
We propel nonprofit work.
Every year, our funds yield millions in grant opportunities for local nonprofits. Our grantees put this money to work on the community frontlines, working to improve quality of life across our region.
We’re proud to say in 2021, we granted $4.82 million to 379 nonprofits.
We increase access to education.
Learning is a tool for lasting change, and we bring the opportunity to more of our young people. Our scholarship program, powered by donor-driven scholarship funds, gives the gift of education to over 100 students annually.
We’re also the humble force behind some of the area’s most influential initiatives.
Where We Serve
Our love for North Central PA runs deep. And our knowledge of these communities is broad.
While our efforts are focused in Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union Counties, our work reaches into Bradford, Clinton, Columbia, Potter, Sullivan, and Tioga Counties through scholarships, as well as donors and their geographic area funds.
