Proud American Fund

Inspired by the patriotism of the country responding to the events of 9/11, Paul H. Silvis, founder of Restek Corp., created this fund to endow patriotic observances, so we never forget to say, "I am proud to be an American." Silvis has been a strong supporter of the Centre County community, both monetarily, and by serving in positions such as president of Central PA 4th Fest and chairman of the Chamber of Business & Industry of Centre County (CBICC). This fund supports nonprofits that display, encourage, or promote patriotic observances, especially on the 4th of July. 

The Centre Foundation has been a proud sponsor of the 4thFest event and we would like to encourage you to give back

Let’s take this opportunity to show our patriotic pride so we can enhance our local heritage in Centre County. Consider making a donation to this fund to honor who we are as a nation, and to help us celebrate all we are and can be. Donations may be directed to the Centre County Community Foundation at P.O. Box 648, State College, PA. 16804-0648.
