The Greater Harrisburg Foundation (GHF) was originally established in 1920 by Donald McCormick. In 2005, GHF changed its name to The Foundation for Enhancing Communities in order to better reflect its mission rather than geographic location. The name GHF was maintained as the representative entity charged with carrying out the grantmaking efforts as one of six current regional foundations. GHF makes discretionary grants to nonprofit organizations that serve residents of Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon, and Perry counties, and the Dillsburg Area.
The Greater Harrisburg Foundation currently manages 523 funds with assets totaling $55,724,895.00 (12/31/15).
The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) is pleased to announce the new framework for the annual grantmaking that is conducted through the Greater Harrisburg Foundation (GHF).
The three new grant types include:
- The “Arts for All” Partnership
- “Our Challenge for Giving” – TFEC Challenge Grant Initiative
- TFEC’s Early Childhood Education Strategic Initiative
