Story of Fund
Dick and Cheryl Campbell understand that the beauty of a community foundation is that it makes it very easy for anyone to be a philanthropist. Dick Campbell, a former foundation board member, has been active with the foundation since its inception. His father, foundation founder Judge Paul Campbell, passed on his passion for supporting the future of Centre County to his children. Dick and Cheryl wanted to assure that future by creating this fund, which supports the operation of the foundation.
