“Our Bork Family Fund has been instrumental in supporting Indiana County nonprofits for more than two decades. In particular, this fund and its advisors have been proud to support the good work of first responders, programs that support literacy and youth, as well as basic health and human service needs,” said Mike Kane, CFA president and executive director. “We certainly encourage more donations from anyone who wants to support these efforts in Indiana County. But we also encourage applications for more programs like these in the community.” The Bork Family Fund’s advisory committee reviews funding requests just once a year, during CFA’s Fall Grant Round.
