Speakers Bureau

Here at the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies, we recognize that every person has the potential to leave a legacy — sometimes, they just don’t know where to start. We partner with change-makers to realize their philanthropic visions, exemplifying honesty and transparency in all that we do.

We know that you and people in groups you belong to may have questions about the Foundation. With that in mind, we have created a brief but informative overview of the Community Foundation—how it works, who supports it, and what the Foundation, in turn, supports. Think about it as Community Foundation 101, but without any tests at the end.

We would love the opportunity to speak with your club, organization, or group. We can tailor our presentation to the size of your group and meet at your convenience.

Just give us a call or email to schedule a discussion. Please contact Stephanie Daniels or Marisa Lehman: (814) 536-7741info@cfalleghenies.org.
