When you think about the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies (CFA), scholarships, grants, or the many nonprofit agencies we help to support may come to mind. What you may not know is one of the many services we provide is the ability to be a fiscal sponsor to philanthropists who want the benefit of operating under an established 501 ©(3) with enhanced marketing, administration, fiscal management, and an established reputation in the community.

The East Hills Business Association Fund was created to make meaningful gifts to the East Hills community. The members of the East Hills Business Association (EHBA) represent businesses that serve the East Hills region of Johnstown, PA. The organization is committed to positive, responsible economic growth of the region, and members seek to offer goods and services that benefit the people of the East Hills region and the surrounding areas.

“We believe in giving back to our community and often provide both financial sponsorship and direct participation in local events that serve the community. Many of our members are also part of other service organizations,” said April Ressler, secretary for EHBA. “This diversity provides opportunities for partnership and collaboration among the various groups in the area”.

The goal of the fund is the betterment of the East Hills Community. The officers of EHBA are community leaders from Richland Cemetery, RPM Signs, the Teeter Group, and First Commonwealth Bank. They are Ginger Pollock, President, Stan Haberkorn, Vice President, Anthony Jardina, Treasurer, and April Ressler, Secretary. The first distribution or grant is expected in 2024. A bowling fundraiser is being held on February 25th at 814 Lanes & Games to raise money for the fund.

EHBA meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at noon for lunch at rotating locations throughout the East Hills area. The lunch includes a brief business meeting, a guest speaker, and time to network with business colleagues. New members are welcome. The annual membership for a business or organization is $50, and each luncheon is $15/per person to cover the meal costs.
