The Luzerne Foundation’s Nonprofit Forum
Every year, local organizations gather at the Nonprofit Forum sponsored by The Luzerne Foundation. Each organization has five minutes to present its background and mission, and how it is addressing the community’s needs. Nonprofits attending the Forum work in the seven areas served by the Foundation: Arts & Culture, Education & Scholarships, Health & Wellness, Historic Preservation & the Environment, Neighborhoods & Community Development, Social Services, and Youth Issues.
The Grants Committee of The Foundation selects a few of the nonprofits to receive grants after their presentations. Although not every organization can receive grants at the Forum, they all have a great opportunity to find new donors through The Luzerne Foundation’s network of fundholders, organizations, individuals, and other foundations who are interested in their cause.
