Creating
powerful communities,
through
passionate giving.
Passionate Giving
Powerful Communities
Communities are often defined by a variety of things:
landmarks, popular streets, business and industry.
Throughout our region, our cities and towns contain
local points of pride—for Williamsport perhaps it
is Little League Baseball; for Lewisburg, Bucknell
University; for Danville, Geisinger Medical Center. The
role of our educational systems, health care providers
and tourist attractions are logical points of reference.
Communities are also identified through heritage: the
role of the river during the lumber era, the debatable
presence of buffalo rooming through Union County
and the many beautiful mansions across the region that
echo a time long ago.
From Mifflinburg to Riverside, Selinsgrove to
Williamsport, and Bloomsburg to Lock Haven, our
region is rich in history and blessed with wonderful
landmarks and institutions too numerous to list. While
many of these markers identify us within the region,
they do not truly define us. Powerful communities are
created by people. Our past is important and economic
strength is critical but it is the people in a community
that make the difference.
FCFP is committed to strengthening the cities and
towns across north central PA and it is our belief
that we will succeed when we work together across
communities. Sharing our experiences, resources, and
leaders will benefit our boroughs, towns, cities and
counties alike.
There are more than 400,000 people living in Clinton,
Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Union, Snyder,
Sullivan, and Tioga Counties and each of us has a role in
making a difference in our region for years to come.
Sincerely,
Davie Jane Gilmour, Ph.D.
Chairman of the Boar

The First Community Foundation Partnership of
Pennsylvania has a long and proud history. It is hard
to imagine that what started with $33.00 over 96
years ago has resulted in a regional community
foundation today with assets approaching $70M.
This organization has been built through the
generosity of hundreds of donors who shared in
a vision for the future—a vision centered on the
community they called home. The Foundation
holds 367 funds that are reflective of the different
hopes and dreams of their founders. Hundreds
of donors have entrusted the Community
Foundation with ensuring that their passions are
supported in perpetuity, even at a time when they
no longer can make the financial commitments
to the organizations closest to theirs hearts. The
Foundation is the keeper of legacies, and the
preservation of those legacies is at the core of
our mission.
Our funds are as diverse as the interests of the
donors that created them. The flexibility of our
organization allows us to create funds that truly
reflect the philanthropic passions of our donors.
From arts and culture to recreation, healthcare to
human services, civic projects to education; our
grantmaking spans the spectrum and makes a
difference in our collective communities.
Passionate people are what make communities
strong and that is the essence of our work. For
nearly a century, we have remained committed
to creating powerful communities through
passionate giving. The following pages highlight the
Foundation’s work across the region in 2012 but
it is vital to understand that this work reflects
almost a century of passionate giving.

The Community Foundation is fortunate
to have over 225 people volunteer for our
organization, by helping to meet community
needs. The time, energy and skills that these
volunteers invest in our community change
peoples’ lives forever.
We are grateful for the dedication of these
volunteers—without them, we would not have
a partnership that allows us to keep pace with
the needs of our community. Thank you!

Union County
Flick on Brick
Ways to Give
A new, annual fundraiser
builds awareness of
the Union County
Community Fund.
“....by far, one of the best community
awareness events we have ever sponsored,”
Some came to the Flick on Brick
event to spend a beautiful October evening socializing
outdoors; others turned out as staunch supporters of
the Union County Community Fund (UCCF). Still others
wanted to satisfy their curiosity—“What is a Flick on
Brick?”
The “Flick” was the blockbuster Ironman; the “Brick”
was a courtyard wall at the Packwood House Museum in
Lewisburg. The event was a new, annual fundraiser that
was “by far, one of the best community awareness events
we have ever sponsored,” according to Dawn Linn, the
FCFP’s Vice President of Planned Philanthropy.
8
The film provided a backdrop for old friends and
new acquaintances to connect, celebrate and enjoy
complimentary wine, beer and gourmet cinema fare. It
was also an opportunity to raise awareness of the UCCF
within the community and open a new avenue for giving.
The Community Foundation utilized new technology
to market the event, sending out invitations via social
media. This approach, Ms. Linn believes, attracted new
donors who might not be reached using traditional
marketing tools. The Union County Flick on Brick evening
raised $1,700; a similar event held in Williamsport in May
2012 brought in $5,100.
Ways to Annually Support the Foundation
Annual gifts support the mission of the
Community Foundation and allow the
organization to enhance programs and help
meet emerging needs of our communities
while assisting with daily operations.
Friends
of the
Foundation
Fund
This annual fund provides important
unrestricted support that allows us to
provide a high level of expertise and
service as we work with our nonprofit
partners to meet the greatest needs
of the residents of our region. A gift to this fund will
ensure that the Foundation will continue to provide
critical support to hundreds of nonprofits that
improve the lives of our neighbors.
Community The Community Funds were created
Funds to enhance the quality of life in each
of the regions that we serve. These
Funds allow the FCFP Board of Directors its greatest
flexibility in making grants to the community.
The Community Funds provide a permanent
discretionary resource for nonprofits. Gifts to these
Funds will address ever-changing needs—including
future needs that cannot be anticipated today.
Rider Park is one of Lycoming
County’s and Pennsylvania’s greatest
recreational areas—867 acres of
protected land available to the
public 365 days a year for hiking, trail running,
mountain bike riding, cross country skiing and
other low impact recreational activities. This Fund
was established to provide grants from the fund’s
principal and income to offset the operational costs
of Rider Park.
Friends of
Rider Park
Fund
Charitable
Gift
Certificates
Are you looking for a unique gift
for that special someone? The
Foundation offers an inspiring
and convenient way to give
while helping to support the invaluable work of
the nonprofit organizations in our community—a
Charitable Gift Certificate. The certificates are
available in increments of $25, $50 or $100 to share
with family, friends and/or business associates.
As a purchaser of a gift certificate, you receive an
acknowledgement for your tax purposes.
The program works like any gift certificate: recipients
of the certificates redeem them with the Foundation,
directing the gift to a charity or charities, in our
region, to benefit. The certificate has a one year
expiration date.
Pennsylvania
Educational
Improvement
Tax Credit
(EITC) Program
This program allows businesses
in Pennsylvania to make
contributions to approved
organizations and receive tax
credits in return for their gifts.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania created the
EITC Program in 2001. The Community Foundation
has been an approved EITC organization since 2002,
and grants through the program have provided
area teachers with funding to bring exciting new
educational opportunities to our students.
Gifts to the EITC program fund: classroom visits
and workshops with authors, artists, and performers;
and equipment and materials for new, innovative
programs that would not otherwise be funded.
The Community Foundation is here to help you with
your philanthropic needs. For information on how to
contribute to an existing fund, contact the Development
Office at 1.866.901.2372 or 570.321.1500.

The First Community Foundation Partnership of
Pennsylvania has created a Legacy Society
to recognize individuals who have named the
Community Foundation as the beneficiary of any
type of planned or deferred gift. By designating the
Community Foundation as a beneficiary, you are
ensuring the future of our community and making
a difference forever. The gift may come to us for
unrestricted use—to meet the changing and most
urgent needs of the community—or for a named
fund—to serve a specific purpose or to benefit a
specific charity. Either way, the impact is lasting.

New Fund
Connor’s
Connection Fund
Donor advised,
pass-through fund
to support educational
needs of autistic youth
in Lycoming County.
Each donor has a unique reason
for establishing a charitable fund at the First Community
Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania, but none is more
deeply personal than that of Shelly and Ray Mattie, who
created Connor’s Connection, a donor-advised, passthrough fund that provides grants for activities, supplies
and technology to help autistic children in Lycoming
County.
When their first-born son, Connor, was diagnosed with
autism, the Matties dedicated themselves to helping him
achieve his full potential. They also committed themselves
to raising community awareness of the needs of autistic
children and helping other parents meet those needs.
Mr. and Mrs. Mattie, Connor and his brother Sam do
everything as a family unit. All are on hand to participate in
grant check presentations. Both Connor and Sam
16
participate in an annual lemonade-stand fundraiser—
which raises thousands of dollars—to benefit Hope Early
Intervention Services for children with special needs. This
past year, Connor, cheered on by his family, ran in a 5K to
raise awareness for children with autism. “I want to run for
autism so people understand,” Connor said.
The teachers and staff at C.E. McCall Middle School in
Montoursville understand. In elementary school, Connor
struggled academically and socially. Today he is an honor
roll student and was named Student of the Month. The
difference, Mr. Mattie believes, is the support Connor, and
other special needs students at the school, receive. “We
have a team behind us, including a super special ed teacher
who believes that any child can be reached.” Connor’s
Connection was created to ensure that autistic children
throughout the region have the chance to be reached.
2012 New Funds
Philanthropists throughout our region rely on the
Community Foundation to provide the attention
and expertise required to help them achieve
their philanthropic goals. Whether the donor is
interested in deferred giving, the creation of a
family endowment or a gift to one of our existing

to assist in structuring gifts that maximize tax
savings and establish an enduring legacy for our
community. The following funds were established
with the Community Foundation in 2012.

in honor of their son Connor, this

Williamsport Knights
Home Association
Scholarship Fund
$40,000 for graduates
of St. John Neumann
Regional High School
When the Williamsport Home Association
of the Knights of Columbus, realized $40,000 from the
sale of property in 2012, its board of directors turned
to the First Community Foundation Partnership of
Pennsylvania to create a scholarship fund carrying on the
organization’s work in perpetuity. The Williamsport Knights
Home Association Scholarship Fund will provide annual
scholarships for graduating students of St. John Neumann
Regional Academy who are continuing their education at
an accredited college or university, according to Arthur
Girio, treasurer of the Home Association.
For Mr. Girio (above left) and fellow Knights members,
including Charles Mertes, Edward Mertes, and Andrew
Johnson (above right), charitable work and service has
been a way of life—beginning with service to country. Just
17 when he registered for the draft in 1943, Mr. Girio served
in North Africa, Italy, France, Germany and Austria. He
returned home to join the Army Reserve and work for the
Veterans Adminstration and Susquehanna Homes
Company which built many homes purchased by young
veterans. He received an accounting degree from Lycoming
College in 1957 and then set out to build a company—the
Girio Agency. Licensed as an insurance agent, real estate
agent and an investment counselor, Mr. Girio is still active
in the business.
Serving others has been the passion of this member
of The Greatest Generation. Mr. Girio has worked for more
than 25 years to help build Camp Victory, the Millville, PA,
camp for children with special medical needs. He founded
a scholarship fund, administered by the Pennsylvania
Lions District 14G and named in his honor. The Art Girio
Scholarship, to date, has awarded more than $76,000 to
worthy students. With the establishment of the Knights
Home scholarship at the FCFP, Mr. Girio and his fellow
members, have the satisfaction of knowing their good
works will live on after them.

Williamsport
Symphony
Junior Strings
Grantmaking at Work
$14,000 to develop
a strings program for
elementary & middle
school students.
Few opportunities exist
for today’s young
string musicians to participate in ensemble learning and full
orchestral performances. The First Community Foundation
Partnership of Pennsylvania is helping the Williamsport
Symphony Orchestra (WSO) create such opportunities
with a $14,000 grant from the Williamsport Lycoming
Community Fund. Grant dollars have allowed the WSO to
launch the Williamsport Symphony Junior Strings program
and expand the Williamsport Symphony Youth Orchestra
(WSYO) and Young Artists Competition outreach programs.
The Junior Strings program, led by Matthew Radspinner,
Williamsport Area High School’s Director of Orchestras, is
targeted to advanced elementary, middle school and
young high school students, according to Janet Harris,
WSO Executive Director. “This is a feeder program for
young musicians, ages 8 to 15, who are not ready for
20
the Youth Orchestra,” Ms. Harris says. Youth Orchestra
members range from age 12 to 20.
The Junior Strings presented its first concert in early
November playing Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5,
among other pieces, at the First United Methodist Church
in Willamsport. In February, the Junior Strings joined the
WSYO—now under the direction of Dr. William Ciabattari—
in concert at the Community Arts Center.
“The WSO provides students with a high quality, fullfeatured strings program and a full orchestra experience
on an ongoing basis,” Ms. Harris says. Through social
media, print media and aggressive outreach to area school
districts, the organization is promoting programs that
provide enrichment experiences for the young people who
will ultimately become Williamsport Symphony Orchestra
instrumentalists and audience members.

Ways to Give
Charitable Gift
Certificates
Jason Moyer celebrates
the holidays giving
10 First Community
Foundation Partnership
gift certificates to
friends and family.
C
haritable gift certificates are
meaningful gifts that keep on giving. The certificates can
be purchased from the Foundation, in denominations
of $25, $50 and $100, and given to friends, family,
colleagues or customers who then choose the charity
that receives the donation. The donor earns a tax
deduction; the certificate recipient experiences the joy
of giving to a cause close to his or her heart.
Jason Moyer, Chief Investment Officer and founding
partner of Hudock Moyer Wealth Resources, first learned
about charitable gift certificates at the Foundation’s 2011
Festive Night of Light celebration. Recognizing the value
of the certificates, he buys ten $100 certificates each
year. “Most people don’t like gift exchanges,” he says.
24
“Materialism is waning; people prefer the experience of
a dinner or party with friends.” By giving charitable
gift certificates to friends and family, he is enabling
them to give. His recipients, who have redeemed their
certificates, have chosen to give to a variety of Lycoming
County nonprofits.
Having served on the boards of such organizations
as the Community Arts Center, the Williamsport
Symphony Orchestra, Williamsport Chamber Choir
and Orchestra and the Community Theater League,
Mr. Moyer understands the importance of supporting
nonprofits. His firm has a well-established corporate
culture of giving back to the community.

Collective
Grantmaking at Work
$10,000 for
orchestral rock project
with Williamsport
Area High School
Orchestra.
On April 25 through 27, the Uptown Music
Collective (UMC) and the Williamsport High School
Orchestra, under the direction of Matthew Radspinner,
will perform Pink Floyd’s The Wall at the Community
Arts Center (CAC) with CAC Executive Director, Rob
Steele, producing the event.
The collaborative performance is made possible
by First Community Foundation Partnership of
Pennsylvania’s $10,000 grant to the UMC for arranger
Rob Byham’s complete orchestration of the Pink Floyd
album. The Wall, which was released in 1979, holds
an enduring appeal to young musicians, according
to Dave Brumbaugh, Executive Director of UMC, the
Williamsport-based nonprofit music school which draws
student, primarily ages ten to 18, from seven counties.
“The Wall is a touchstone for our students, as is Pink
Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon,” says Mr. Brumbaugh.
UMC students are mounting the production. They have
worked with Mr. Byham on the orchestration, and will
direct, write and be involved in set design. The set,
which will include the eponymous nine-foot wall, will
be built by the Community Arts Center in collaboration
with the Pennsylvania College of Technology
Construction Club. A cast of 30 UMC musicians and
vocalists will take the stage with Williamsport High
School Orchestra musicians for a total of 70 to 80 on
stage for the performance.
The UMC first performed The Wall in 2006. “We
were a very young organization,“ says Mr. Brumbaugh.
“It was our first time on a big stage and our first time at
the Community Arts Center. We have come a long way
since then.”

Taylor J. Ertel
Scholarship Fund
Scholarship Fund
benefits students who
have been placed in
foster care at some
point in their lives.
I
n 1993, Kay and Allen Ertel established
a scholarship foundation, in memory of their adopted son,
Taylor, to benefit students who have been placed in foster
care at some point in their lives. For nearly 20 years, Mr.
and Mrs. Ertel administered the fund, soliciting donations
from friends and family. In 2012, looking to ensure that the
scholarships continue forever, Mr. and Mrs. Ertel moved the
fund to the First Community Foundation Partnership of
Pennsylvania, creating the Taylor J. Ertel Scholarship Fund.
Since the transfer, FCFP has granted $40,620 from the Fund.
Mr. Ertel, U.S. Representative from the 17th Congressional
District from 1976 to 1982, has served as counsel for a
statewide child placement agency headquartered in
Philadelphia. As such, he and Mrs. Ertel became aware
that foster children seldom know the stability and sense
of family that Taylor enjoyed.
According to Mrs. Ertel, “Following state law, foster
children ‘age out’ at 18.” At that critical age they must
fend for themselves with few opportunities for furthering
their education. “Many of them never get a chance,” she
says. The Ertels’ scholarship fund provides that chance.
“Applicants don’t have to be outstanding scholars,”
Mr. Ertel says. “They can be enrolled in any program of
study—a college, technical school or vocational school. The
scholarship is seed money to get them moving,” he says.
For Patrick Fusaro, a senior enrolled in Temple
University’s Sport and Recreation Management
program, the Taylor J. Ertel Scholarship has brought new
opportunities. “This scholarship has been so important
to me. I can’t thank Mr. and Mrs. Ertel enough,” he says.
In May, Mr. Fusaro will graduate, an event that he sees as
“bittersweet. I will miss Temple, but I am eager to get out
and start my career.”

Scholarships
Over $231,309 in scholarships were
awarded in 2012 to help 131 students
further their education.
