The Shamrock Shuffle, benefiting the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty, is a 5k/10k event and Community Block Party hosting more than 5000 attendees on The Square @ Union Centre in West Chester. Proceeds support the Community Foundation’s Community Grants Fund and ongoing operations, as well as, the many different nonprofit organizations who register a team through the Shuffle Gives Back program. Last year, the event raised nearly $100,000 with more than $30,000 of those proceeds granted through Shuffle Gives Back. Now in its 11th year, the Shamrock Shuffle has become a great community-building event. Runners, families, school groups, businesses, charities, and local restaurants join together to raise dollars for the causes they care about. We hope you will consider joining us on March 18th!
The Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty is a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in West Chester and Liberty Townships. We are the philanthropic resource for local giving and, since our grassroots establishment in 1999, have grown to manage nearly $15M across more than 185 funds. Community foundations are designed to accept contributions from people that wish to make a lasting difference in their community. The organized efforts of community foundations result in the collection and distribution of funds that greatly benefit local communities through grants and gifts to local charities and charitable community projects. By collaborating with local government, nonprofit organizations, business leaders and you, our neighbors, we are creating a vibrant community now – and for future generations.
