Supporting Charities in Your Community

This resource connects you to the outstanding charitable organizations who serve our community, showcasing the many opportunities to make a meaningful contribution. We hope you will be inspired by their work, and responsive to their needs.

Because the Community Foundation develops its assets for, and in cooperation with, all the charitable causes in our community, you will find profiles for the Community Foundation and it's Established Funds under some of the causes listed below.

Local charities are listed by cause:

Arts, Culture & Heritage
Community Services
Health and Wellness
Other Trusts and Foundations
Northumberland County

Communities are like orchards

Each charity listed accepts donations through planned giving  (sometimes called charitable gift planning). Since planned giving opportunities differ slightly in regards to charities and foundations, and because tax laws change frequently, it is recommended that those considering donations through planned giving consult a professional advisor. This resource was created for several reasons. Along with promoting philanthropy at a local level, we also want to encourage community members to seek professional advice in regards to estate and tax planning. Charitable giving can generate significant tax benefits in both annual and estate tax situations - and many people are not aware of these opportunities.
