2004, the Newtown Community Foundation officially incorporated and
received its 501(c)(3) charitable status, meaning all funds invested
are tax deductible to the donor. In 2005, the Board decided to become
a supporting organization of the Bucks County Foundation, a community
foundation serving all of Bucks County since 1979. As a Supporting
Organization, Newtown can offer the same range of funds, use the same
guidelines and avoid the administrative expenses of a larger organization.
Early in 2005, Newtown Community Foundation
received its first gift and invited the community to invest in
the future of Newtown.
