Growing for Good At Community Foundation for the Alleghenies, we believe in a lot of things. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to participate in our community, to give back, to leave a mark. We believe in working together to build a better future rather than waiting around to see what happens. We believe in, and work for, the big-hearted intentions of our donors and feel an almost sacred obligation to help them realize their dreams in support of our shared place in this world. This past year, we have increased our ability to help. We’ve added new staff and dedicated full-time efforts to donor services, grantmaking programs, scholarships, and communication. We’ve moved into a new office to create a welcoming, inspiring space. These changes help us effectively manage a growing number of donations from and distributions to the community— now from over 5,000 separate donors and 745 charitable funds. Our Legacy Society, a group of generous people who have remembered us in their wills or estates, has grown to 97 members. It has been a good year. On behalf of our donors and the community, we distributed over $6.1 million, and about two-thirds of that amount stayed here in our region. You will read some of their stories in these pages. Even with these distributions, our total assets grew 8 percent to just over $78 million. We are growing because our donors are putting us to work, and we are driven to live up to their philanthropic visions. We want to do a good job for them and for our communities and together spur changes that make a difference, forever. Of all the ideals we believe in and work to realize, we believe in the future of our community. Let’s believe together. We are here to benefit the region every day. Forever. Thank you for being a part of that. For a full list of our donors, grants, and scholarships, please go to www.cfalleghenies.org. Mark Pasquerilla Board Chair

Philanthropy Empowering Generations This year, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, CFA launched the Early Childhood Education Fund, a new, ongoing special initiative. One of our region’s most urgent unspoken challenges is a lack of high-quality early childhood education programs. Right now, in Somerset County, there is not a single childcare program (other than Head Start) that the state recognizes as high-quality (Keystone STAR 3 or STAR 4). It’s a similar story in Cambria County, where only 30 percent of children under 5 are enrolled in high-quality programs.

Why is this important? To put it simply, our region’s future depends on it. Research links high-quality early childhood education with increased employment and tax revenue; increased job retention and productivity for employers; higher earning potential for parents; improved math and language ability; healthy development; and reduced grade repetition. Without it, children in our area begin their academic and social lives behind and often stay behind; they face a much higher risk of dropping out of school, becoming a teen parent, and being arrested for a violent crime. That kind of disadvantage to young people is a disadvantage to all of us and to our community’s future, which is exactly why Community Foundation for the Alleghenies made improving access to early childhood education one of our special initiatives. The new fund aims to provide a permanent resource to address this critical need. It began with an anonymous donor but is open to any caring citizen who wants to make our children—our future—their legacy.

To find out how you can empower generations, contact our Donor and Development Services Officer Katrina Perkosky at kperkosky@cfalleghenies.org or 814-208-8411. 4

Philanthropy Transforming Tomorrow Our region is on the cusp of transformative change. For the past few years, energized volunteers, forward-thinking organizations, and regional leaders have pushed to re-imagine the region’s future. They’ve mapped out strategies, such as Vision Together 2025 and the multi-county Alleghenies Ahead plan. They’ve collaborated like never before and broken down territorial limitations. More and more people are recognizing the potential of the region’s people, places, culture, natural resources, and quality of life. The momentum is here, but we have to take advantage of it. The changes and big ideas can’t be implemented without resources, including ongoing financial support. That’s the critical need that our enhanced Community Initiatives Fund directly targets. This year, we committed at least $600,000 to projects that can affect transformative change, and we launched a special initiative to create a permanent resource for projects that steer our region toward community and economic viability. Donors who choose to transform tomorrow through this fund will help our region realize powerful change—growth in net income, property values, household income, and county health rankings and a decrease in poverty levels. Together with the Early Childhood Education Initiative, CFA donors and partners are embarking on a multi-faceted approach to making our region better, forever: by helping more local children achieve success and by creating job- and resource-rich environments to support them as adults, we are helping to shape a vibrant future for all of us.

To find out how you can transform tomorrow, contact our Donor and Development Services Officer Katrina Perkosky at kperkosky@cfalleghenies.org or 814-208-8411. 6

Integrity Creating a Legacy of Opportunity The Esther Keyser and Edith Dressler Scholarship Fund was established as a part of the Foundation’s Legacy Society in February 2019 by two sisters from Somerset County. Our Legacy Society recognizes individuals now who have decided to donate to CFA in the future through a planned gift from their estate. Edith and Esther chose to support opportunities for higher education for local students because of the love they share for young people and also the challenges they faced in their own youth. “We really just wanted to do some good,” Edith said. “We grew up knowing what it was like to want to go to school or college and not have the money to do it.” CFA staff helped the sisters both create specific scholarship opportunities that align perfectly with their interests. Edith’s portion will be awarded to a student who will be entering the technology field, while Esther has elected to award hers to a student who plans to apply a passion for agriculture in his or her future. The Legacy Society allows donors to not only be thoughtful with their giving, but to envision a future of philanthropy that will last forever.

“We grew up knowing what it was like to want to go to school or college and not have the money to do it.”


The Community Foundation honors individuals who have committed to supporting our community and charitable causes most important to them through a gift from their estate. Making a legacy gift reflects thoughtful intention to make a difference well beyond your lifetime. Our Legacy Society allows for individuals to be acknowledged for their future gift commitment today, ensuring that our members’ names and spirit of giving will be honored forever. To start creating your own legacy, call us at 814-536-7741.

Integrity PLAN for the Future Through CFA’s Philanthropic Leaders Advisory Network (PLAN), we work to help our colleagues in financial and estate planning help their clients. Our Donor and Development Services Officer Katrina Perkosky explains how it works. Q. What is PLAN?

A. PLAN is a partnership between CFA and the region’s professional wealth advisors. By collaborating with us, advisors can help clients better meet their charitable goals by utilizing

the Foundation’s widespread knowledge of the nonprofit sector. Q. Why would wealth advisors want to engage with CFA?

A. We understand that many in the community have already forged trusted relationships with

wealth advisors. The Foundation works to enhance those existing bonds, guided by financial

transparency and an understanding of current community needs. When clients open

charitable funds at CFA, they have the option of continuing to use their personal investment

advisors. Q. What are the benefits of being a PLAN member?

A. We help to promote the advisors we work with by including their names and links to their

firms on our website. We also provide marketing materials to potential donors with information

on our PLAN members and the partnership they have with CFA. Q. How can I become a PLAN member?

10

A. Throughout the year, we organize continuing education seminars for local advisors on a

variety of relevant topics, including charitable giving strategies, estate planning, tax law

change education, and more. We ask that advisors attend at least one of these sessions a year

and also meet individually with CFA staff to become PLAN members. To get started, you can

contact me at 814-208-8411 or kperkosky@cfalleghenies.org.

Empowerment Walking Hand-in-Hand Through partnership funds, Community Foundation for the Alleghenies supports volunteers with charitable projects and events. These funds rely on CFA to provide administrative support and accounting services so they can focus on their mission. Sometimes the Foundation can even help ensure that an event that once had national support can continue to exist without it. Walks to fight cancer in Bedford and Cambria counties are two perfect examples. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Bedford County started in 2011 but came to an end in 2016 when the American Cancer Society consolidated the event with one happening in Blair County. A similar situation unfolded with the Relay for Life of Greater Johnstown. That could have been the end of the story for the walks in those communities, but it wasn’t. Thanks to grassroots organizers and support from CFA, both communities continue to host walks and raise money for local families. The Bedford committee members who once worked with the American Cancer Society banded together to form the Bedford County Pink Ribbon Fund in 2017. Last year, they raised more than $59,000. Walk organizers in Cambria County also formed their own event in 2016, the Johnstown Walk of Hope. This year, that event raised more than $55,000. The driving force behind their success is that all donations stay local. Participants in those events are helping their neighbors and fellow community members manage the cost of treatment-related expenses, such as past-due medical bills, insurance and prescription co-pays, gas cards, meals, and other bills. Organizers for both events rely on the Foundation for the nonprofit structure they need to continue to operate.

Empowerment Keeping Memories Alive The Kamnikar Award was created in 1961 by the coaching staff at Greater Johnstown High School to honor the memory of John “Jack” Kamnikar. Jack was a standout football player, starting at quarterback for the undefeated Trojans in his junior year. He was also a stellar student, landing among the top 10 percent of his class. Tragically, two months before his senior year, Jack and his girlfriend were killed in a car accident while traveling along old Route 219. After his death, JHS awarded the scholarship for decades to the senior letter winner with the highest GPA to continue honoring Jack’s memory. However, the initial funding was designed to be a short-term scholarship fund, and the money eventually ran out. In an effort to keep the scholarship alive, the school district reached out to Jack’s family. The family wanted to find a way to continue honoring his memory with the award, but they also wanted to bring a permanence to the scholarship that it had thus far lacked. Through CFA, they created the Kamnikar Award Scholarship Fund, which will be awarded annually to a graduating Greater Johnstown senior who excels academically and has lettered in a sport. By creating a fund through the Foundation, Jack’s family will be able to continue granting scholarships to athletes who are dedicated to success in the game and in the classroom, keeping Jack’s legacy alive forever.

Leadership Strengthening Community-Led Philanthropy In Bedford and Somerset counties, CFA is supporting and encouraging grassroots efforts to grow resources that will benefit those communities forever. The Bedford County Endowments has grown to 51 individual funds, which support everything from higher education for local students to resources for veterans to promotion of the arts. The Bedford County Community Fund, an unrestricted endowment to support needs in Bedford County and guided by an advisory committee, has grown to $88,800, with a new campaign underway to push the fund to an important milestone—$100,000—so grantmaking can begin. Established more than 20 years ago, the Somerset County Community Fund has provided more than $250,000 to worthy causes. The ongoing #SomersetCountyGives campaign has been met with broad-based community support; caring citizens have pledged more than $300,000 to the Somerset County Community Fund, with the aim of growing that endowment to a million dollars over the next few years. Achieving that goal would make the fund the largest endowment dedicated solely to supporting Somerset-area nonprofit activity. The Somerset County Endowments office also relocated this year to a larger space in Somerset Borough that interfaces with important human services partners.

Leadership Remaking Downtown Johnstown Ongoing efforts to improve downtown Johnstown and bring more people and energy to Central Park Square are achieving results, thanks to a number of CFA-supported initiatives. The Vision Together 2025 Central Park Square Capture Team’s ongoing work is just one example. Along Gazebo Park, Gallery on Gazebo opened this year with help from CFA. The gallery houses a fine loose-leaf tea retailer as well as local art that is available for purchase. The space has quickly become a popular gathering spot, and hundreds of people attended a gallery-hosted art-and-tasting event set up in Central Park this summer. Just a couple doors down, construction began on a new makerspace and maker residency program. CFA helped drive the effort to launch Creator Square, a program designed to connect world-class makers with small-batch manufacturing tools and local entrepreneurial support. The concept stemmed from a framework created by Carnegie Mellon’s Remaking Cities Institute. Funding sources include the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the U.S. Economic Development Administration, CFA, and private donations. JARI and Southern Alleghenies Planning & Development Commission also helped secure funding. Along Locust Street, CFA and other project partners, including Vision Together 2025 and the Johnstown Youth Corps, built and dedicated a new greenspace in honor of Leo and Stella Cakouros, a couple who were part of the downtown business scene for 30 years. The Cakouros family partnered with CFA to create the new park, which features a rounded central patio, seating area, and four customordered outdoor musical instruments. Trees will be planted to provide shade and additional beautification around the seating area. Vision Together 2025 Coordinator Ryan Kieta said the park adds a pleasant space for reflection to the downtown experience: “You can look at Central Park and recognize there’s real momentum generating outward from the square right now.”

Collaboration Creating Opportunities This year, more students found help pursuing higher education in Bedford County. In May, scholarships were distributed for the second time from a fund set aside for Fulton County students attending the Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) Bedford County Campus. The scholarships, now part of the campus’ Bedford County Regional Education Foundation (BCREF) Fund at CFA, were a passion project for Kay Reynolds, CFA’s recently retired Bedford County Director. Kay was always looking for ways to open doors for students and worked to foster collaboration between the two foundations, ACM Director of Pennsylvania Advancement and Community Relations Leah Pepple said. Since its inception in 1993, the BCREF has awarded more than $1.3 million to students, and since 2004, the BCREF Fund at CFA has distributed more than $184,000 in scholarships. “Kay has a heart for the community, for education, and for helping people create opportunities in their lives,” Pepple said. Before the new fund opened, available scholarships were extremely limited for students from Fulton County, which borders Bedford County to the east. Both CFA and the Bedford County Regional Education Foundation agreed to donate funds to start the new scholarship. Kay also personally contributed. Now, six students every year will receive financial help to reach their dreams because of the work the foundations were able to accomplish together.

Collaboration Making the Region a Destination CFA donors have seen the value of the region’s trails, and their support is one of the reasons so many trail connections are happening now and in the near future. Over the past decade, CFA has been able to award nearly $250,000 in direct grants to support the region’s growing trail systems in Bedford, Cambria, Indiana, and Somerset counties. Many of these grants helped bring in millions of dollars in state and federal funding for trail-related projects and conservation efforts. The past year has been a busy one for those who follow local trail development. In April 2019, the Foundation awarded a $50,000 Community Initiatives Fund grant to Somerset County to start the first phase of the September 11th National Memorial Trail connection between the Great Allegheny Passage trailhead in Garrett to the Flight 93 National Memorial. The September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance also opened a fund at CFA this year to support development and sustainability for the trail system. This summer, Quemahoning Trails project partners officially opened a 17-mile bicycle trail that encircles Somerset County’s Quemahoning Reservoir, an important step toward building on recreational opportunities in the region and making the area a destination for thrill-seeking visitors. In Cambria County, another extension to the Ghost Town Trail opened this summer, building on a plan to make it the first continuous rail-trail loop in the nation.

How have our partners and donors helped make trails happen?

Fund for the Future

Building our community’s endowment Building our Fund for the Future ensures that our region will always have philanthropic resources available to meet future community needs. Our Fund for the Future is comprised of Distribution Committee and Field of Interest Funds. These resources are pooled together to achieve greater impact both now and into the future. Community Foundation for the Alleghenies uses a portion of these funds each year to invest in community change across a broad range of issue areas.

DISTRIBUTION COMMITTEE 20 FUNDS, $7.4 MILLION IN ASSETS, $262,000 IN 2019 GRANTS, $16,700 IN 2019 GIFTS Distribution Committee Funds provide flexibility by allowing our Distribution Committee and staff to use their knowledge and expertise in determining which efforts or initiatives would be most impactful for the community. These funds address our community’s pressing needs and promising opportunities. We receive more than 200 applications annually from local nonprofits seeking these funds.

FIELD OF INTEREST 22 FUNDS, $13.3 MILLION IN ASSETS, $1 MILLION IN 2019 GRANTS, $1.6 MILLION IN 2019 GIFTS Field of Interest Funds allow donors to identify an area of personal interest, such as the arts, economic development, education, the environment, health, housing, basic human services, seniors, or youth. Within that area of interest, the Foundation identifies the best philanthropic use of the fund’s distributions, now and into the future.

New Spaces

This summer, the 2019 Youth Philanthropy Interns made good use of our new boardroom, which we have made available to area nonprofits.

Our Staff

Thanks to our donors and partners, CFA is growing! This year, we added positions and restructured our team to build a stronger foundation to more efficiently and effectively meet community needs. We made some strategic changes, such as making Angie Berzonski our first full-time program officer and hiring our first full-time communications officer, Kecia Bal, and our first full-time administrative and technology specialist, Marie DeWerff. Katrina Perkosky has been promoted to donor and development services officer and Marisa Lehman is now our donor services associate. Our hope is that we’ve not only boosted capacity, but also aligned our staff to better meet existing and anticipated community needs. Get to know us: cfalleghenies.org/about. 39
