CVCC History

When two dozen community residents founded what then was know as the Zelienople-Harmony Community Chest in 1944, their goal was to promote cooperation between area residents and the welfare, philanthropic, benevolent and social services available at the time.  In 1961 the named was changed to the Connoquesnessing Valley Community Chest (CVCC), and in 1965 by-law changes brought in Jackson and Lancaster Townships as well as a portion of adjoining Beaver County.

Along with promoting cooperation between the residents and the organizations available to those residents, the major purpose of the CVCC is raising funds to support the participating organizations, and then distributing those funds in an equitable manner.  Funds raised through the annual campaign are for the use of approved non-profit organizations which serve the local populace.

Using all volunteer help, each campaign has been successful through the cooperation of area businesses and industry as well as residents.  More than a million and a half dollars have been raised and distributed over the years.  Unlike other fundraising campaigns, every dollar given to CVCC is disbursed to those organizations.  Moreover, no costs are charged to the campaign as local business and industry underwrite all expenses.

We welcome everyone to become a member of our Century Club by making a donation of $100 or more.  All contributions are tax deducible.  Your donation can be made either by mail – please click the Pledge Form, print it and with your donation mailed them to, CVCC, P.
