Centre Foundation's Administrative Fund

Inspiring the future of Centre County by stewarding the mission of Centre Foundation


Story of Fund

Fund general arts

This fund was created by donors inspired by a matching grant offered by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.   These first donors to the fund, and many others in the years since, value Centre Foundation's role as leader of community philanthropy.   Through their support of the operations of the foundation, these donors are able to touch every organization that the foundation benefits.


How Does it Help?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has.

Dictionary.com defines stewardship as "the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving." This fund, and others which support the operation of Centre Foundation, provides stewardship for the future of Centre County. It allows Centre Foundation to provide greater funding and services to local charitable organizations, as well as enhance our services to the donor community.
