Spotlight: Foundations Community Partnership celebrates 15th anniversary

On July 20th, 2007, Foundations Community Partnership (FCP) was founded as a philanthropic grant-making foundation supporting the behavioral health and human service needs of children, young adults, and families in Bucks County. Since then, FCP invested more than $6 million in Bucks County’s nonprofit organizations and community through grants and technical assistance, high school scholarships, service-learning internships for college students, education programs, and more.

FCP provides a unique set of services across the Bucks County community, supporting a wide variety of nonprofit organizations – from museums and nature preserves to facilities for medically fragile children, among countless others.

Foundations awards scholarships to Bucks County high school seniors through its Partnership in Education Program, subsidizes paid service learning internships for college students at local nonprofits that serve children, youth and families in Bucks County, and supports behavioral health education – bringing leading clinicians to Bucks County to present professional education workshops to local educators, counselors, parents, and mental health professionals.

“We value the opportunity to collaborate with our nonprofit partners and pride ourselves in supporting those that are striving to have a positive impact in our community,” says Dr. Tobi Bruhn, FCP’s Executive Director. “It’s extremely rewarding helping to improve the quality of life among Bucks County youth and families. Seeing the life-changing work of such people and organizations never fails to inspire us.”

Many people contributed to the success of FCP. From Founding Executive Director Ron Bernstein’s vision to build this foundation into a catalyst for improving the quality of life in Bucks County, to Dr. Dan Weldon, Nancy DiNatale and Caroline O’Connell Sinton for offering their expertise to build the many programs and services that support the local nonprofit community to this day. Finally, special thanks to the many members of FCP’s Board of Directors, past and present, who volunteered their time, talents, and energy to make Bucks County a better place.
