Attention nonprofits: Apply for Centre Foundation grants!

The Centre Foundation is currently accepting applications from nonprofits for our fall 2012 competitive granting cycle!

Applications are due Tuesday, Oct. 30, and must be completed online.

In order to utilize monies available through field-of-interest funds, we especially encourages organizations with projects pertaining to Penns Valley, mental health, hearing impairments, Seeing-Eye dogs or patriotic observances to apply during this cycle.

Our summer competitive granting cycle awarded more than $23,000 to local nonprofits. This year we also distributed a $10,000 grant to Discovery Space of Central Pennsylvania through our Anniversary Circle, and we sponsored Centre Gives, which raised more than $415,000 for 74 local nonprofits, on top of an additional $100,000 match provided by the foundation.

Since 1981, the Centre Foundation has awarded more than $7 million in grants to more than 250 local organizations.
