Centre Gives

Centre Gives is a fantastic annual tradition run by Centre Foundation in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Centre Gives is a 36-hour online fundraising event, basically the community equivalent of the political money bomb concept, except in this case Centre Gives supports more than 100 nonprofits throughout the Central Pennsylvania region.

A realtime leader board displays a tally of donations, both in terms of individual gifts and total dollars raised for each participating nonprofit. Anyone can give, with a minimum gift of $25. Each gift helps qualify participating nonprofits for a share of more than $100,000 in matching funds. Last year more than $500,000 was raised, significantly strengthening Central Pennsylvania’s nonprofit and social entrepreneurship ecosystem.

There are many great pariticpating nonprofits, including The State Theatre, Mount Nittany Conservancy, and New Leaf Initiative.
