Since its founding in 1989, the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation has supported a number of significant charitable projects. One of its major efforts has been to raise funds and coordinate construction of the Keystone Conference Center at Fort Indiantown Gap. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, which owns and operates the Conference Center, has recognized the Foundation as a key partner in this project. The Keystone Conference Center was dedicated on 14 May 2010.
In 2006, the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation served as the main non-government partner for “Operation Salute.” Operation Salute brought together more than 20,000 Guard members and members of their families for a day of remembrance, celebration and reunion. Operation Salute allowed a grateful Pennsylvania to say “thanks” to Guard members and their families.
In 2010, the Foundation partnered with the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and other agencies to support “Operation Family Ties” to provide assistance to deployed personnel and their families.
Today, the Foundation is assisting with efforts to raise funds for the 2nd Brigade Memorial at Boalsburg.
And the Foundation is a key partner with the Pennsylvania National Guard Associations and the State Family Program Office in the “Guardsman-2-Guardsman” (G2G) program, which receives donations from generous donors and distributes them to support Guard members and families in times of need.
