Robert P. Campbell Fund

Improving lives in Centre County by responding to current needs

Story of Fund

Campbell robert p.

This fund was established by Robert P. Campbell as a way to continue and support what his father, Judge R. Paul Campbell, started.  “Whenever Centre Foundation is brought up I show my pride in my father for what he has started for the benefit of Centre County.  I can see his smile now for how the Foundation and the Youth Service Bureau, another wonderful organization he started, have progressed in recent years.  I thank all those that have made his dreams a reality.”

How Does it Help?

We rise by lifting others.
