Centre Inspires
Inspiring Centre County

Centre Inspires offers grants to fund projects that will be transformative on a county-wide scale by creating change through community engagement. It is a vehicle to enable the continued growth and strengthening of Centre County on a broad scale.

How Centre Inspires Works

Centre Foundation will provide up to $100,000 in grants to fund an innovative project that provides an opportunity to transform an aspect of life in Centre County. Collaborations between non-profit organizations and other entities that foster community engagement are strongly encouraged.

Organization qualifications and program guidelines are as follows:

  • Proposed projects must serve Centre County residents.
  • Only organizations that are the beneficiaries of a Centre Foundation endowment fund may apply.
  • Collaborative partnerships between nonprofit organizations, businesses, churches, government entities, etc. are encouraged.
In 2020, Centre Inspires funding has been rerouted to our COVID-19 ACTION Fund. This change will allow us to expand our support of the organizations providing inspirational change throughout the pandemic.
