$364,000 in Grants Distributed to Local Nonprofits
As part of our annual and first-quarter granting cycle, Centre Foundation will distribute $364,000 through 204 grants. These grants will benefit 107 nonprofits serving the local community in one of four interest areas: health and social services; education and life-long learning; environmental conservation and awareness; and culture, community, and the arts.
These grants are provided through endowment funds, which continually support the ongoing efforts of local nonprofits. For example, the Foxdale Training and Tuition Fund supports continuing education opportunities for Foxdale nursing staff; while the Food Bank of the State College Area Fund provides food security, directly or indirectly, to people in Centre County.
Over the course of 2019, three additional rounds of quarterly grants will be distributed, totaling $427,000—bringing the yearly total to over $791,000.
If you are interested in establishing a fund of any type, we are happy to assist you in reaching your philanthropic goals. For more information, please call our office at (814) 237-6229.
