Chelius Family Fund
Helen Chelius established this fund through her bequest. In 1968, she moved to State College, where she volunteered with many local organizations, including the Centre Mansion, Centre Community Hospital’s snack bar, and St. Andrews Episcopal Church. Through this fund she will continue her legacy by supporting the entire community through Centre Foundation. This fund 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.
