Focusing Community Resources... Building for the Future
The Bethel Park Community Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that 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 our activities in the following four principal areas of enrichment:
Community facilities 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.
