Welcome to the Carbon County Community Foundation!

Fund Spotlight : The 20/20 Circle

The Community Foundation is an umbrella for many different charitable funds. Some funds, like the Fund for Carbon County, are advised at the discretion of the Board of Directors. The 20/20 Circle is a perpetual fund that is designed to serve our community’s ever changing needs. Donors pledge at least $1000 to become a member of the Circle and meet annually to vote to award grants to the most deserving community projects and organizations. Learn more.

A New Vision for Charitable Giving in Carbon County

Fund Spotlight : The Carbon County Creative Arts Fund

Founded and supported by donors who would like to encourage the arts in our region, the Creative Arts Fund is CCCF’s first field of interest fund. The fund will have a committee of stakeholders to oversee grant distributions in the community to qualified artists and organizations. This fund will grow through donor support and arts event fundraisers which themselves will be opportunities to engage with and support the arts.   Learn more about how you can help.

Support the arts in our region, forever.

Thank you to everyone who turned out and helped make "Art with a View" a success! We had a great turnout and heard positive feedback from many people. There were five works of art sold and five more auctioned. That's good news for local artists. There ARE people willing to buy artwork in our region. Among the artwork that sold, the prices ranged from $95 - $450. The final tally is still uncertain as there are additional funds expected to come in and we need to do the final accounting, but it looks like we raised over $8000 for the Fund! ...

“Art with a View" Artist Spotlight: Douglas Didyoung
Meet Douglas and see more of his work at "Art with a View" a charity auction, art exhibit, and sale at Blue Mountain Resort TONIGHT Thurs. October 11. All proceeds to benefit the Carbon County Creative Arts Fund, a perpetual fund to support the arts in our region. Register today - Tickets are limited and on sale now! cccfoundpa.org/artwithaview/
Visual artist and painter Douglas Didyoung Jr. has embarked on a life of
travel, adventure, and exploration that brings the influence of global
experiences and artists to his graphic work. His work highlights beauty, joy,
and loss that is intrinsic to the human experience.
Bridging the gap between the natural world and imagination, Douglas's
works evoke a sense of motion and vitality, rendered in striking and deeply
saturated colors. The play between reality and fantasy can be seen in a recent
series intended for display in a child's environment, featuring a whimsical
deepwater octopus realized in jewel tones.
Having lived in Korea, Vietnam, and New York City, Douglas has found his
home in the Pennsylvania Dutch countryside. He moved to Jim Thorpe, PA
for the inspiration of the Poconos Mountains. Doug's energy and artistry are
regularly sought by the local community as well as the global community.
Douglas was born Linh Due Nguyen in Saigon. At the age of 5, he was one
of the almost 26,000 children involved in Operation Airlift, a 1975 effort by
American relief agencies to evacuate children from South Vietnam. He was
adopted by Helen and Doug Didyoung Sr and spent the rest of his childhood
in Reading PA eating ring bologna and the like.

“Art with a View" Artist Spotlight: Jay Davenport
Meet Jay and see more of his work at "Art with a View" a charity auction, art exhibit, and sale at Blue Mountain Resort TONIGHT Thurs. October 11. All proceeds to benefit the Carbon County Creative Arts Fund, a perpetual fund to support the arts in our region. Register today - Tickets are limited and on sale now! cccfoundpa.org/artwithaview/

Jay Davenport has always been interested in and excited by fine art, especially, animals and wildlife. With an encouraging push from his grandfather, he began private instructions at an early age. His enthusiasm and education in arts continued as he later earned an Associates Degree in Painting and Illustration. His passion for art led him to complete a four year aprenticeship in Realism and Trompe-l’Oeil.
Jay has participated in many exhibits across the country, some of the awards he has won include, The Bosque Conservatory Silver Medal and numerous awards in Artist Magazine Annual Competition. His passion for art has been illustrated in many publications including 2007 Strokes of Genius, The Best in Drawing. In 2015 Jay won the OPA Animal Award of Excellence, Signature & Associate Division for Keep Your Eye on the Ball.
With his strong foundation in representationalism, Jay’s desire to paint the funny and humorous has materialized in this side of animals and how the different things they do relate to human life. His intention is for the viewer to “step back once in awhile and observe and even laugh at ourselves”.
Jay's work continues to be prevalent as his dedication to the craft reflects the promise of his future. Jay offers personal instruction in fine art at his studio in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.
