Field of Interest
  Donate Women's Giving Circle Fund
In 2016, 12 women from across the region came together to play an active role in changing the lives of women and girls in their communities. The Women's Giving Circle was established to empower, connect, and inspire women and girls by supporting initiatives and resources that better their lives. This dynamic group of women—now 70+ strong—continues to engage in new relationships, provide valuable grants to local organizations, and share their passions with the community. ((If your donation is for a Women's Giving Circle membership, please list the level in the comments/notes box.))
  Donate Brighter Christmas Fund
The Brighter Christmas Fund was launched in 1985 by Press Enterprise Chairman Paul R. Eyerly III as a campaign focused on giving back to the local community. Since its conception, the paper's readers donated more than $2 million to help families in need during the holiday season. Requests for help are reviewed by members of the Fund's volunteer advisory committee, which includes repsentatives from social service and educational institutions in Columbia and Montour Counties. The Brighter Christmas Fund joined the Foundation's family of funds in 2019, passing off administrative functions once based in the newspaper's business office. Your gift helps provide charitable grants to nonprofit agencies to support those in need in our community during the holiday season. (Your donation will be listed in the Press Enterprise and the Foundation's Annual Report per your donor information or designated "name recognition".)
