The Community’s Foundation has existed since 1986. Originally, we were the Parent Corporation of Taylor Hospital in Ridley Park, PA. However, our mission fundamentally changed in 1997, when Taylor Hospital was sold to the Crozer-Keystone Health System and the Foundation began to function as an independent charitable entity.
Since 1997, we have been operating as a Community Foundation. Community Foundations are grant-making public charities that are dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined geographic area. Despite many name changes over the 20+ years, we have been steadfast in our priorities: awarding grants to local non-profits, awarding scholarships to promising students, and connecting individuals that care with causes that matter.
