Becoming a Partner Agency


We know that working together - around clear goals and aspirations - informed by community voices and shared stakeholder accountability - creates the most effective change. By becoming a Centre County United Way Partner Agency, we can collectively achieve this change. Our greatest strength is our partnerships and our shared mission of making Centre County better for all.

By leveraging philanthropic resources collected within our community, Centre County United Way serves as a partner and investor of programs managed by non-profit 501(c)(3) health or human service organizations that provide essential services to Centre County residents. The community places their trust in us to ensure all our nonprofit partners are fully vetted as financially sound agencies delivering services effectively and efficiently to support the community needs. Programs developed, implemented and managed by the United Way’s non-profit partner agencies align with the objectives, goals and strategies identified within our community.
