Letter from our Executive Director and Chair

In 2021, as the world embraced hope and resiliency, the foundation embodied this mindset to connect, engage, and thrive with our members, donors, and the consumers we serve.

With the support of our fundraising consultant, we launched a major gift fundraising strategy this year. Foundation staff initiated more than 150 touch points with donors, focusing on establishing and strengthening relationships for years to come. As a result, 14 companies gave new or increased gifts in 2021. The average gift size also went up in both general donations and gala gifts.

Our 2021 hybrid Gala was a new technological achievement for us as we hosted a broadcast of the program to our virtual guests from the Pando studio in Ambler, Pennsylvania...
