Improving lives in Centre County by responding to current needs


Story of Fund

Fund fred farber

This fund was established by Fred Farber, a State College attorney.  Fred is a former Board Chair of the Centre Foundation and an active community volunteer. 


How Does it Help?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Centre Foundation discretionary funds are distributed through our competitive grants process to meet the changing needs of the Centre County residents.  In a unique role as philanthropic leaders of the community, foundation board members, who represent all areas and people of the County, and the knowledgeable professional staff, are uniquely equipped to understand the changing needs of the community, and focus grants where they can make the most impact over the years.
