The Commonwealth National Foundation


Our Mission

The Commonwealth National Foundation was formed in 1999 to establish a vehicle through which members of Commonwealth could collectively raise money for charity. The mission of the foundation has always been clear.

“Establish a vehicle through which members of Commonwealth could raise money and make contributions to local charities. It was our intention that the organizations we chose would be smaller in nature and therefore our grant would have a significant impact on that entity and its ability to deliver services to the community. The local part was equally important. We wanted to be able to see the impact of our donations.”

Since its inception, The Commonwealth National Foundation has donated over $1,000,000 to local charities on behalf of the members of our club.

The majority of our fundraising comes from our member solicitation and annual golf outing and auction. Our goal this year is 100% participation. All contributions are tax deductible and contributors will be recognized in our annual event publication.Over the years your foundation supported the following organizations:

        For Petes Sake

        Gilda’s Club

        HealthLink Medical Center

        Special Equestrians

In order to perpetuate this unique organization and its impact on our community we need your help. It is at this time we ask the members of Commonwealth to make a tax deductible contribution to the Foundation.

On October 5, 2017 the Commonwealth National Foundation held its 19th annual Golf Outing and Auction. Over nearly two decades the members of Commonwealth have donated over $1,100,000 to twenty different local charities. Last year the following organizations received grants from our foundation:
    •    Big Brothers Big Sisters of Montgomery County
    •    Horsham Neighbor’s Association
    •    For Pete’s Sake
    •    The Edward Taylor Coombs Foundation
    •    Gilda’s Club
    •    OHAAT
    •    The Parenting Center of Hatboro Horsham
    •    Special Equestrians
All members should have received an electronic invitation to the event in August.  The event historically sells out quickly and is limited to thirty foursomes. There are various sponsorship levels still available. This is an excellent opportunity to
entertain guests and benefit a great cause. Participants enjoy lunch, lavish tee gifts, a premium dinner and an auction stocked with many one of a kind items.
We would like to thank Chapman Auto Group of Horsham for once again being our title sponsor.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored and participated in our 19th annual Commonwealth National Foundation Tournament and Auction on October 5, 2017. Your generosity will enable the Foundation to assist several local charities.

We look forward to seeing everyone on October 4, 2018 for our 20th annual event!

Commonwealth Members Support the Local Community

In addition to financial support the foundation needs your help in a few other ways.  Members can volunteer to serve on the board of trustees. The board meets quarterly to plan the annual event and to research and select the charities.

Thank you for your support.
