The mission of the Waverly Community House is to enhance the lives of individuals and families in the region by fostering educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities.  We have been fulfilling this mission for 90 years.  Please join us in ensuring that the Comm will continue to be a vibrant community center for decades to come.

We welcome gifts of amounts comfortable to our supporters and offer the following levels of giving to our donors:

  • Margaretta E. Belin Society ( $1000+)
  • Founder’s Circle ($500 to $999)
  • President’s Circle ($300 to $499
  • Trustee’ Circle ($200 to $299)
  • Patrons ($100 to 199)
  • Friends ( Up to $99)


A gift of cash is the most common form of charitable giving. An outright gift to the Community House qualifies as a federal tax deduction for up to 50% of adjusted income. It is considered made on the date it is mailed or hand delivered. It must be made or mailed by December 31 to qualify for tax deductibility for the Calendar Year

Planned giving is a great way to support the Comm. See your estate attorney or financial advisor, or call Development Director Denise Reinhart at 570-586-8191, ext 3 for more information.

If your employer offers a gift-matching program, you can help the Comm twice as much! Please talk to your Human Resources Coordinator for details.

It is customary for friends and family members to express sympathy through memorial giving as a meaningful way to offer consolation on the loss of a loved one. At other times, marking a special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday through a tribute gift may be appreciated more than a gift.

Memorial contributions and tributes are donated directly to the Comm’s Endowment Fund to benefit programs and operations unless it is specifically designated as a contribution to the annual sustaining fund.

The Comm will formally notify the respective friend or family member of your gift and it will be noted in our monthly newsletter. The amount will remain confidential.

Thank you to all of our 2014 donors who have shown their support with gifts and pledges.  We invite visitors to support our local businesses and are most grateful to the following businesses and organizations for their commitment to the 2014 Sustaining Fund.

The entire “Comm Community” extends a warm “Thank You” to the following businesses and organizations for their generous support of the 2014 Annual Sustaining Fund Drive:
