The Edgar Snyder & Associates Foundation

About the Foundation

The Edgar Snyder & Associates Foundation supports Western and Central Pennsylvanian communities through charitable efforts that provide financial support and resources to causes that prevent personal injury, care for injured persons and their loved ones, and improve local neighborhoods.

We are passionate about taking care of those who may need to Find Edgar, but we hope that they never need to. Our goal is to keep our Western and Central Pennsylvania communities safe and supported and we will roll up our sleeves and work side-by-side with charitable organizations to get the job done.

A Note From Edgar

Since establishing the firm 40 years ago, I have made giving back to the community a top priority for Edgar Snyder & Associates. The firm has invested time, resources and financial support for charitable organizations in Western and Central Pennsylvania.

Now, we are building on our 40-year history and formalizing our charitable giving by establishing the Edgar Snyder & Associates Foundation. It is my honor to lead the Foundation as it continues to serve the causes close to my heart while broadening the opportunities to serve communities and individuals in the region.

We thank you for being a part of this journey with us and we invite you to join us in the next chapter of charitable giving.

Supporting the Injured

One of the primary goals of the Foundation is to support those who have sustained personal injury and their caretakers. To champion this goal, the Foundation has granted an inaugural gift of $100,000 to the Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation to help establish its Family and Caregiver Program.

Variety - MyVoice Program

We love Variety the Children's Charity, and the life-changing work they do on behalf of area children with disabilities. We've supported their MyBike for years, and we're excited to help get the word out about MyVoice, which gives a voice to children who've been diagnosed with communication disorders. See how MyVoice has changed the lives of 5-year-old Tyler and his family.

Partnering with BikePGH for Operation Illumination

Not only is an unlit bike a safety hazard, it’s also a ticketable offense, and we want to make sure cyclists are protected. That's why we partnered with BikePGH on Operation Illumination, an initiative to install free front and rear bike lights for people who need them.

More Projects Helping Kids

At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we know the importance—as well as the impact—of helping to enrich the lives of children in our community. That's why we are honored to work with many local nonprofit organizations to help make a difference in the region.
