“Visions of Eagles” evolved from discussions following the 45th Class Reunion of the Nazareth Area High School Class of ’62 in September of 2007.

One of the members prospered in business and made it known that “seed money” would be provided to start an organization to help others in the Nazareth Area.

The original committee members were all classmates. “Visions of Eagles” was established in late 2008 as a Pennsylvania not-for-profit corporation operating as a public charity. We are comprised of a four member Board of Directors that has corporate, philanthropic, banking and trust experience. The Board serves on a thirteen member committee consisting of individuals who live or work in the area being served.

Visions of Joy

“Visions of Joy” is our annual Christmas campaign which has provided holiday gifts to over two hundred families with approximately four hundred children in the past seven years.  We work with our local churches and service organizations to identify families who could not otherwise provide gifts for their children.  Our “Visions of Eagles Elves” shop, wrap and deliver the holiday gifts.
