Expanding Reach and Expertise

With its inception, Commonwealth Charitable Management quickly gained recognition as a leading authority in the field of EITC administration. The organization’s commitment to excellence and dedication to streamlining the EITC process caught the attention of the PA Bankers Association. Consequently, Commonwealth Charitable Management was proudly selected as the association’s exclusive vendor to administer EITC programs for banks across the state of Pennsylvania. This esteemed designation further solidified Commonwealth Charitable Management’s position as a trusted partner for financial institutions seeking to make a meaningful impact through the EITC program.

In the year 2017, an exciting milestone was reached when The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains became a division of Commonwealth Charitable Management. Established as the parent company, CCM provides a platform for the Community Foundation to focus specifically on the Endless Mountains region. Through the Community Foundation’s efforts, the region could now benefit from vital resources such as endowments, donor advised funds, and charitable savings accounts. Meanwhile, Commonwealth Charitable Management extended its reach to serve the broader commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
