Statement of Purpose
The Penn Security Charitable Foundation generally concentrates its grant making activities on 501(c)(3) charitable organizations seeking funds to advance innovative programs having a measurable and positive impact on the residents of the communities in which the Penn Security Bank conducts business. Our goal is to return to those communities some of the benefit the bank has received as a responsible corporate citizen.
Areas of interest include health, education, scientific, literary and social welfare programs and the overall protection of children and youth. Generally, the foundation does not contribute to general operating expenses. The foundation encourages challenge grants, matching grants and partnerships involving worthwhile projects. Normally, the foundation will not consider multi-year grants or grants to programs that are duplicative of others currently being conducted in the community.
