Ways to Support

Celebrate the Center (CTC) is the Lauri Ann West Community Center’s premier fundraiser and a highly-anticipated social event. Here, families, friends, colleagues and area businesses gather to enjoy a night of fine food, music and libations while supporting a community resource for wellness, learning, growth and discovery.

Be part of this annual celebration as a patron or sponsor. Learn more here.

Thanks to the work of volunteers, the Reflection Garden on the Lauri Ann West Community Center’s Scott Family Patio is now landscaped and adorned with
seasonal plantings.

Help us continue to beautify and personalize this space by reserving an engravable stepping stone.

Only a limited number of stones are available. More information here.

The Lauri Ann West Community Center is an approved Educational Improvement Organization under the Education Improvement Tax Credit program offered through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. EITC enables businesses to make donations to non-profit educational organizations approved by the Commonwealth. EITC is a statewide initiative enacted by the DCED in 2001 and enables Pennsylvania businesses to apply credits against their tax liability for the tax year in which they make a contribution to support students and education in the Commonwealth. The dollars your company would have paid in taxes will instead provide funding to support S.T.E.A.M. education programming for children at the Community Center. Visit Pennsylvania’s EITC site, which is provided above, for more information or to apply for tax credits.

Many corporations offer their employees the benefit of matching the personal philanthropy of their employees. Please check with your employer to see if you are eligible. Typically, employers will provide a matching gift form that you complete and send with your gift. This program can double your gift and provide extra benefit to the Center at no extra cost to you.
