Connelly Foundation Awards Grant to KeystoneCare Hospice
Wyndmoor PA – Keystone Hospice, a subsidiary nonprofit of KeystoneCare was awarded a grant from the Connelly Foundation, West Conshohocken, to resurface the parking lot at the hospice facility and organizational headquarters. This much-needed improvement will make parking safer and more aesthetically appealing for patients, families, volunteers, guests and staff.
The Connelly Foundation funds nonprofits in order to improve the quality of life in Greater Philadelphia in the fields of education, health and human services, arts and culture, and civic enterprise. Connelly’s first year of grant support to Keystone was in 2003 and we are grateful for this long-term partnership in serving the community.
