About Centre Foundation

Centre Foundation Team

Celebrating 40+ Years of Community Impact

Since 1981, Centre Foundation has remained dedicated to its mission: To inspire and facilitate a culture of giving and engagement that cultivates a vibrant, equitable, and inclusive community.

In that time, thanks to our generous donors, Centre Foundation has invested over $43,000,000 into our community through impactful programs, grants, and scholarship funds. Our focus on building endowments has enabled us to grow to over $70,000,000 in assets. We are inspired by your generosity, and we look forward to continuing our mission of creating a vibrant and promising future for Centre County during Centre Gives and all year round.
