Strengthen What You Love

BEDFORD — When 6-year-old Kayla was sick and in the hospital, she was touched by the outpouring of love that was shown to her. She soon decided to pay it forward. Along with her family, she began to collect toys, activity packs and blankets to deliver to kids at UPMC Bedford Memorial Hospital … to show them a little extra love. As her project, “All 4 Smiles,” began to grow, she needed help to manage the fundraising, donations, and distributions.
The Community Foundation for the Alleghenies made the connection.

For 25 years, the Community Foundation has been connecting donors with the causes that matter most to them. Last year they distributed $3.6 million dollars in grants and scholarships.

How does it work? The Community Foundation helps you set up a fund to help the causes you care about. Your investment grows as part of the Foundation’s $60 million asset base. Then other donors can contribute to that fund and help it grow even more.

What do you love in our community? The Foundation will be happy to help you support that cause. Visit to learn more.
