Donate To A Fund

Non-Invested Funds
Donate NEPA COVID-19 Response Fund
The NEPA COVID-19 Response Fund rapidly deploys resources to community-based organizations at the frontlines of the coronavirus outbreak in the Northeastern PA region. The NEPA COVID-19 Response Fund is a non-endowed, committee-advised field of interest fund which provides flexible resources to organizations working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the related economic, social, and health-related consequences of the outbreak. The Fund is designed to expand local capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak as efficiently as possible, particularly those that might be unable to be effectively addressed otherwise. The Scranton Area Community Foundation serves as host and administrator of the NEPA COVID-19 Response Fund.
Donate The Ritz Foundation
The mission of The Ritz Foundation (a.k.a. Page to the Stage) is bringing arts and culture back to the historic Ritz Theater in Scranton, PA, including restoration to the theater to ensure active participation by the community. In further support of the mission, two scholarship programs have been established. The Page to the Stage Arts Program Scholarship will support students enrolling in a program like CaPAA or other arts organizations which focus on theater (both technical and performance), art, dance, and other performative outlets. The Page to the Stage Collegiate Arts Scholarship will be a scholarship awarded annually to a graduating high school senior pursuing arts education in their post-secondary education.
Operating Funds
Donate Community Needs Fund
The Community Needs Fund (Unrestricted Endowment) is used to fund grants that are awarded to regional nonprofit organizations throughout the year in addition to assisting with annual operating costs. This fund gives donors the ability to help the Foundation respond to the continued timely and critical needs of our community throughout the years.
Donate Jeanne Bovard Administrative Endowment Fund
This fund was established in September 2012 to honor the legacy of Jeanne Bovard, the former Executive Director of the Scranton Area Foundation who served the Foundation and the community for 25 years. The fund will be used to support the long-term sustainability and work of the Scranton Area Foundation, enabling our community foundation to continue serving, supporting, and providing funding for non-profit organizations in Lackawanna County.
