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:

The Commonwealth National Foundation will hold it’s 19th annual golf outing and auction on Thursday October 5, 2017. Since our inception in 1999 the Foundation has donated over $1,000,000 to local charities on behalf of the members of Commonwealth. Last year the Foundation made grants to the following charities: Special Equestrians, Gilda’s Club,  For Pete’s Sake, The Edward Taylor Coombs Foundation, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Montgomery County, The Parenting Center of Hatboro Horsham and The Peace Center.

We would like to thank Chapman Ford of Horsham for once again being our title sponsor. An invitation was emailed to members with all the event details. The event, which historically sells out quickly, is a very special day at the club and is limited to 30 foursomes. Members entertain friends and clients at a first-class event unlike any other one-day golf outing. Participants enjoy lunch, lavish tee gifts, a premium dinner and an auction stocked with many one of a kind items. In addition to golf sponsorships, members can make donations to the Foundation at various levels. We look forward to seeing everyone in October. If you have any questions, I can be reached at BJR828@gmail.com.

Commonwealth Members Support the Local Community

The Commonwealth National Foundation held it’s 18th annual golf outing and auction on Thursday October 6, 2016. We would like to thank Chapman Ford Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Horsham for once again being our title sponsor.

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.
