The Centre Foundation has announced its competitive fall 2012 grant cycle and encourages local nonprofits to apply.

Applications are due Tuesday, Oct. 30, and can be completed online at

The foundation is targeting organizations with projects having to do with Penns Valley, mental health, hearing impairments, seeing-eye dogs or patriotic observances to apply during this cycle, "in order to utilize monies available through field-of-interest funds," according to a press release. 

The Centre Foundation's summer competitive granting cycle awarded more than $23,000 to local nonprofits. Earlier in the year the foundation distributed a $10,000 grant to Discovery Space of Central Pennsylvania through its Anniversary Circle and sponsored Centre Gives, which raised more than $415,000 for 74 local nonprofits on top of an additional $100,000 match provided by the foundation.

Since 1981, the Centre Foundation has awarded more than $7 million in grants to more than 250 local organizations, the press release said.
