The Foundation for Enhancing Communities Launches “Together We Take Action” Funding Program for June

The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) is helping local nonprofits with the launch of their funding program “Together We Take Action.”

TFEC provides simple, effective, and personalized services to help donors achieve their charitable goals and create a lasting impact in their communities.

The “Together We Take Action” program, which runs throughout the month of June, gives donors the chance to contribute to nonprofit organizations’ partially-funded grant requests in Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Perry and York counties. Participating organizations have been reviewed by an independent committee and received partial funding for their grant request. TFEC has created an online grant catalog that provides a connection between TFEC, local nonprofit organizations, and donors so we can take action – together.

“With the help of generous donors to our ‘Together We Take Action’ funding program, the participating nonprofits’ grant requests can be fully funded,” said Caitlin Cluck, Director of Community Investment, of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities. “These projects are vetted and will make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in Central Pennsylvania.”

 To make a donation to any of these projects, or learn more about the participating nonprofit organizations, visit TFEC’s website.

The last day to donate is June 30.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
