Bergholz Community Foundation Projects

Learn more about the many community projects funded by our foundation.

Community Impact

Nearly every family in the community has been touched to some degree by the Bergholz Community Foundation, examples are:

EMS, VFD or police protection, Scholarship recipients, children that attend the Edison Local School District or Elkhorn Valley Christian Service Camp. Anyone who has gone to the playground, played at the ballfield or visited the community park. Anyone that has enjoyed the banners and flowers on 2nd street, any child that has attended a church youth program, VBS or Sunday School. Anyone that has received medical services at our medical building, gone to a food pantry or attained help from the Christian Emergency Fund. If you attended the Bergholz 4th of July celebration, Thanksgiving dinner at the restaurant, or light-up night, you have been touched by the BCF.
