Ralph and Joan Brower Family Fund

Improving Lives in Centre County by Responding to Current Needs

Story of Fund


Joan, a lifelong Centre County resident, met Ralph while he was playing soccer for Penn State. They were married soon after and made State College their home, a place to raise their daughter, and start a business. The Browers are involved with several local non-profit organizations, making it a habit to give back and be engaged.

How Does it Help?

Ralph and I have called State College home for more than 60 years and want to share our resources for human services and our passion for local history of this ever-growing community.

This fund supports organizations for which the Browers have a great passion.  As a donor advised fund, the organizations may change each year, depending on where the Browers recommend that there is the greatest need.
