What is Centre Gives?

Centre Gives is an annual online giving event designed to encourage community giving and to support the great work of Centre County nonprofits during 36 hours – starting at 9:00 am on Tuesday, May 10, 2022 and ending at 9:00 pm on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

During Centre Gives, donors may visit CentreGives.org to make secure donations to their favorite local nonprofit organizations. The minimum donation is $10, and every dollar donated to participating nonprofits goes further thanks to the Centre Gives stretch pools provided by Centre Foundation and the Hamer Foundation. Your gift could also help qualify your favorite nonprofits to win additional cash prizes!

This exciting community giving event is hosted by Centre Foundation and supported by our community impact funds and partnerships with local businesses.

Why should I donate through Centre Gives rather than directly to my favorite nonprofit?

Your donations through Centre Gives not only qualify your favorite organization for a larger share of the $200,000 stretch pool and $100,000 bonus stretch pool, but will also help them qualify for additional prizes throughout the event.

Why is Centre Foundation hosting Centre Gives?

In 2012, Centre Foundation established Centre Gives to support and raise awareness of Centre County's many nonprofit organizations and the incredible work they're doing in our community.
