Centre Gives - Potentially double your donation to Voices!

Huge THANKS to ALL our supporters!
Voices received $6577 in direct gifts!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Overall the CENTREGIVES event was an AMAZING success, with 2,847 gifts, totaling $415,116, given to over 80 non-profits. Congratulations to the CCCF for running an amazing event!

The Centre County Community Foundation is planning a special event called Centre Gives, a 36-hour online donation event, which will take place from 6 a.m. on June 27 to 6 p.m. on June 28, 2012. Centre Gives will enable charitable organizations that serve Centre County (like Voices of Central Pa) to raise a large amount of funds in a short period of time. Countywide, matching funds of $100,000 will be available from the Community Foundation!

Match Days have already been organized in many communities across the United States, resulting in the raising of hundreds of thousands of dollars – or more! We hope that you will join us in making Centre Gives a successful event for the Community Foundation, and for Voices of Central Pa! 

Please help spread the word about this opportunity, and on June 27 & 28, log onto to make a donation to Voices of Central Pa, or use the form right on this page.
