Week of Giving to Kick Off March 16


Bridge Builders Community Foundations will hold the annual Week of Giving March 16 – 20. During the Week of Giving, donations can be given to one or many local organizations.

In the weeks and days leading up to the event, you can visit bbcfgives.org and learn about the organizations that match your philanthropic goals, with missions that most closely match what’s important to you, your business, or family.

Your gifts are enlarged by a match pool, provided by generous sponsors.  The website provides answers to frequently asked questions and, during the week, provides reporting of total contributions to each charitable organization.

We encourage you to consider a gift to the many organizations/funds making a difference in our region, including the Venango Area Chamber of Commerce Endowment Fund. Donations to our fund go towards the Be Here Initiative, FLEX Young Professionals, Leadership Venango, and more.

Bridge Builders Holds Week of Giving—March 18-22


Bridge Builders Community Foundations (BBCF) will host the Week of Giving this month—a campaign to spur collective charitable giving and garner excitement that will allow donors to give to numerous nonprofits throughout our region.

Last year, more than $240,000 was raised through the Week of Giving, with 128 nonprofits participating. Approximately 150 nonprofits have signed up this year, and the foundation hopes to raise even more towards organizations making a difference in our community.

“This campaign isn’t only about donations; it’s about educating people on our community’s needs and the nonprofits that are meeting those needs,” said Trenton Moulin, executive director of BBCF. “So many nonprofits of all sizes are making our area a better place and we want to celebrate that and showcase all that charities do.”

Beginning on March 18 at 9 a.m., community members can visit bbcfgives.org and make donations to both small and large organizations, ranging from children & youth and libraries, to environmental and arts & culture.

Donations by check must be in BBCF’s possession by 4 p.m. on Thursday, and online donations end at 5 p.m. on Friday.
