About Us

The purpose of The Glenridge Charitable Foundation is to harness and recognize the philanthropic generosity of the community’s individual members by facilitating and streamlining their charitable giving. Members can give to their favorite charities through The Glenridge Charitable Foundation or they can give to one of the five internal Glenridge funds: Glenridge Benevolent Fund, Endowment Fund (GPAC), Glenridge Academy Scholarship Fund, Glenridge Team Member Emergency Assistance Fund, or the Glenridge Compassion Fund.
