A Story of Local Giving

Linda and Terry Brown's love for the community has led them to commit their time, talent, and treasures to many local organizations. Volunteering has been an important part of their lives, and through their service on area nonprofit boards they have seen the challenges these organizations face to keep the doors open and lights on. They established a testamentary fund to provide grants to benefit nonprofits in the Danville area after the Browns are gone, creating a legacy of community giving in their name forever.

"Running a nonprofit is a little like being a homeowner—just when you think you've got everything taken care of, something else happens. We wanted to be able to give our favorite nonprofits a little extra money with no strings attached to simply use for what they need." (Linda and Terry Brown, Fundholders)

Danville's History

In 1999, the Danville Area Community Foundation was founded to benefit community residents through the stewardship of charitable gifts. Serving as a philanthropic resouce for local individuals, families, and businesses, the group set out to support a wide variety of interests and causes for the betterment of the Danville area. In 2013, the Foundation affiliated with the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation (now Community Giving Foundation) to support its grantmaking, development, and community awareness.

Many people support the Foundation as a way of saying "thank you" to the community where they live, work, or play. Others see it as a way to ensure the future of their community. In 2007, Danville's board extended their personal commitments to the residents and organizations in their community by establishing the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Fund through their own individual donations. Many years later, this unrestricted fund continues to serve as an avenue for everyone to participate in community giving together. More than $150,000 has been granted from the fund to support current pressing and unmet needs in Danville.
