This donor advised fund was established by Robert D. Ricketts, an active member of our community for over four decades through his work at Penn State and via local organizations like the Centre County YMCA, Leadership Centre County, and as a board member at Centre Foundation. Bob began the R Fund to support Centre County nonprofits long into the future and to pass this dedication to the community on to his children. "One of the most important lessons we learned from our parents, Bob and Donna Ricketts, was the importance of giving back to our community. The R Fund has been established by our parents as an everlasting lesson to us on the importance of giving back to the community where we grew up and live." - Robyn and Bobby Ricketts. This fund supports organizations that Bob and his family are passionate about. As a donor advised fund, the recipient organizations can change each year, depending on where the donor-advisors see the greatest need.
