The Avon Club Foundation has the mission to enrich the Avonworth community by promoting civic participation and community service, to motivate people to help others, and to increase resources to meet our goals.
The generosity of Avon Club and Avon Club Foundation has touched many lives for the better. Over the past decade, ACF has donated over $75,000 to community organizations, deserving charities and other worthy causes. The distribution of these grants are based upon our goals of Education, Recreation, Preservation and Social Responsibility. Some of the major benefactors of our grants include North Boros/Sewickley Area Meals on Wheels, North Hills Community Outreach, Avonworth School District, Wooden Ladder Preschool, Mt. Nebo Preschool, the Glen Montessori School, Avon Park, Avonworth Community Park (ACORD), North Boros YMCA, Women’s Center & Shelter of Pittsburgh, HEARTH and the Ben Avon Area Historical Association. Requests for funding are accepted once a year with a deadline date of March 30th. Anyone interested in applying for a grant can submit a written request to the attention of the Finance Committee or contact us via our website. All funding requests, as recommended by the Finance Committee, should allow ACF to achieve its goals and must be approved by a majority vote of all ACF’s members.
Although ACF’s primary geographic focus for granting funding is within the Avonworth School District, consideration will be given to charitable organizations outside our district, especially those focusing on social responsibility issues pertaining to the needs of women and children.
