For a number of years, area business and civic leaders from McKean County worked together to explore the establishment of a community foundation in the McKean County area. Their goal was to create opportunities throughout our area to serve people interested in committing long-term resources to address local needs, now and in the future.
In February 2017 the McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) was established. The Community Foundation of the Northern Alleghenies, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization, is the parent company of both McKean County Community Foundation and the Elk County Community Foundation.
Our Foundations provide donors with a simple but powerful and highly personal approach to achieving their philanthropic goals while enhancing the quality of life for the people of our region.
