HARRISBURG, PA – Helping local nonprofit organizations build permanent and consistent streams of revenue is part of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities’ (TFEC) mission. In the recent conclusion of TFEC’s Centennial Agency Match Campaign, they engaged organizations that currently have an agency fund with TFEC and offered a $250,000 match pool for all new funds raised from March 1, 2020 – September 1, 2021.
In total $415,657.60 was raised to support participating organizations and their agency funds.
“Growing an agency fund requires steadfast dedication to the principle of investing in the future,” says Janice Black, president, and CEO of TFEC. “The goal of this campaign was to provide our nonprofit partners the opportunity to achieve a key measure of financial stability and carry out their mission for generations to come.”
There were 8 participating organizations including:
- Alder Health Services
- Central Pennsylvania Food Bank
- Franklin County Library System
- Gretna Theatre
- Humane Society of Harrisburg Area, Inc.
- Market Square Concerts

Participating organizations received resources and information that they could use to raise additional funds for their endowment such as: sample press kits, sample social media posts, and a guide to running an effective endowment building campaign.
The Centennial Agency Match campaign allowed TFEC to engage and educate local nonprofit organizations on the importance of growing their endowment fund and investing in a permanent, stable source of income and the longevity of their organization in support of the great work they are doing in their communities.
