A. Laura Mateer Fund
Laura Mateer was a longtime resident of State College. Active both civically and philanthropically, she was a major benefactor in the construction of Penn State’s Mateer Building, named in honor of Laura and her late husband, M.C. “Matty” Mateer, who was the managing partner of the Hotel State College and Corner Room Restaurant. Laura’s gift was made through a charitable remainder trust and supports Centre Foundation’s discretionary funds, which are distributed through our competitive grants process to meet the changing needs of Centre County residents. In a unique role as philanthropic leaders of the community, foundation board members and staff are equipped to understand the changing needs of the community and to focus grants where they can make the most impact over the years.
