How You Can Support
DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT LEADERSHIP
Leadership Centre County’s programs are supported by sponsors, donors, and volunteers who help us transform ordinary citizens into extraordinary civic-minded leaders. Please consider supporting Leadership through one of the opportunities listed below, or reach out to us to talk about specific ways you can help elevate our next generation of community leaders!
Each year we look to our alumni to give back to the program that helped them reach a new potential. With these annual gifts, we can ensure that the experience and knowledge past class members have gained is available to others. Support at all levels of giving ensures we are able to meet our mission.
Sponsors are an integral part of our organization. By providing support as
a sponsor, your company not only gains name recognition with the next
class of community leaders but also actively works to improve our
community by helping to develop those leaders. To learn how you can
become a sponsor, please call us at 814-238-5559.
LEADERSHIP CENTRE COUNTY ALUMNI ENDOWMENT FUND
The Leadership Centre County Alumni Endowment Fund was established
through the Centre Foundation in 2001. The income from the fund will be
designated for scholarships and program materials. To make a contribution
to our fund, contact us today.
LEADERSHIP CENTRE COUNTY PROGRAM ENHANCEMENT FUND
The Leadership Centre County Program Enhancement Fund was established by Betsy Dupuis, Class of 2001. Her goals are to:
Provide additional resources to program day committees for enhancements which cannot be funded via LEADERSHIP’S annual budget.
Enable “outside the box” thinking and planning for program days
Promote even more innovative and interesting program days
Facilitate collaboration between or among program day committees.
Donors gain entree to the LEADERSHIP Giving Circle which reviews committee requests for Program Enhancement funds and makes recommendations to the board for awards. To learn more about the Giving Circle or to join, please call us at 814-238-5559.
LEADERSHIP CENTRE COUNTY CORPORATE NAMED SCHOLARSHIPS
The tuition fee for the Community Leadership Program for the Class of 2021 is $2,255. While many companies pay the full tuition for their employees in the program, each year several class members are not sponsored and therefore must pay their own tuition. This can prove to be a hardship for these candidates. Leadership Centre County is committed to providing opportunities for participation to all qualified candidates regardless of their financial standing.
Class members are selected after a rigorous application review process that clearly identifies them as future community leaders. The corporate named scholarships enable Leadership Center County to provide financial awards to these deserving and motivated future leaders so they can receive the training that prepares them to serve as effective volunteers for Centre County non-profit and government agencies.
If you’re interested in providing a corporate named scholarship, please contact us today.
