The Camp Hill Area Community Foundation (CHACF), a regional foundation of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC), conducts an annual competitive grantmaking program for nonprofit organizations serving the Camp Hill Area zip code of 17011.

Our Funding Priorities

CHACF’s strategic grantmaking focus is to invest in innovative, collaborative approaches and solutions to community problems, and to support projects that demonstrate achievable outcomes, the potential for replication as a model program, and plans for sustainability beyond the grant term. CHACF’s overarching goal is to fund programs and services that have the potential for the greatest impact on the quality of life and positive outcomes for individuals and families living in the Camp Hill area.

CHACF requires that applicant organizations be aligned with one or more of the following funding priorities:
