South Fayette Community Fund

Established: 3/30/2015

The South Fayette Community Fund, as part of The Pittsburgh Foundation, aims to enhance park facilities and community amenities for residents, businesses and service organizations in South Fayette Township. The municipality, established in 1842, has experienced enormous growth in recent decades and has recognized the need to expand recreational opportunities, build a sense of community and strengthen township identity—goals reflected in the township’s tagline, “A Community Growing Together.”

The fund was created thanks to the efforts of the Parks and Recreation Board, in conjunction with township staff, elected officials and community support. Donors can give tax-deductible funds earmarked for the township’s parks, recreation programs and community development initiatives.

South Fayette Township, in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, is a 20.95-square-mile township located about 17 miles southwest of Pittsburgh and 15 miles from Pittsburgh International Airport. Named in honor of General Lafayette of the American Revolution, the township’s population was 14,416 in the 2010 census—an increase of more than 48 percent since 1980.

The community contains the South Fayette Township School District, public parks, neighborhoods, business districts, farms, major highways and more. Connect with South Fayette Township at www.southfayettepa.com, www.facebook.com/SouthFayetteTownship and www.twitter.com/SouthFayetteTwp.
