The application for Centre Gives 2017 is now open!  

Centre Foundation is encouraging qualified nonprofit organizations serving Centre County to apply for its annual online giving program ahead of the February 10th deadline. 
“Centre Foundation is thrilled to be hosting our sixth annual Centre Gives event on May 9th and 10th this year,” said Molly Kunkel, Centre Foundation’s Executive Director.  “This event continues to grow in both its popularity and its impact in Centre County.”
Since Centre Foundation launched Centre Gives in 2012, over $4 million has been invested into the local non-profit network.  In five years, Centre Gives donors have strengthened over 130 organizations, improving thousands of lives through work in the areas of arts, animals, education, environment, and health & social services.
“Once again, Centre Foundation will provide a $100,000 stretch pool along with additional prize money,” continued Kunkel. “Donations made during Centre Gives are stretched further, which helps donors make a bigger impact with their generosity!”
To provide an improved, user-friendly, and record-breaking event, Centre Foundation is working with a new website vendor for 2017.  More information and a preview of this exciting new site will be announced in the coming months.
Participating organizations will again be able to sharpen their fundraising, communication, and donor appreciation skills during the Centre Gives Success Series. Attendees must register for sessions, which will be held at Centre Foundation’s office throughout the month of March.
