OUR AFFILATE MISSION is to contribute to the quality of life in their particular service area. The affiliates pledge to lead by focusing on critical needs and facilitating the community’s response, facilitating the creation of permanent endowments that make giving effective and personally satisfying for contributors, and allocating foundation resources to address the needs of those we serve.
Venango Area Community Foundation Board of Directors
This affiliate was founded in 1975 by local attorneys to meet the growing need to form a community foundation to provide a permanent place for community funds to grow and benefit the community perpetually. VACF has been the cornerstone of all other foundation affiliates as it was originally designed to serve Clarion, Forest and Venango Counties.
In 2008 each county formed their own foundation, under the umbrella of Bridge Builders Community Foundations.
