The Melita B Snedden Fund

The Melita B. Snedden Fund is a Charitable 501(c)(3) Fund via Centre Foundation focusing on Brain Aneurysm Awareness and making a difference in the lives of those who have suffered from Brain Aneurysms and Traumatic Brain Injuries - The Fund was established in 2015 by Jacquelyn "Jackie" Snedden, a State College Area High School Student-Athlete and current Lock Haven University D1 Student-Athlete. 

"The decision to establish this fund not only honors her mother's memory, but also gives Jackie Snedden a vehicle to make a difference.  Sadly, Melita succumbed to a brain aneurysm after surviving three others.  Since then, Jackie has been focused on those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries and how to make a difference in their lives.  With her interest in business and marketing, Jackie is looking forward to using this fund as a mechanism for change in her community."

Jacquelyn "Jackie" Snedden remembers her mother, Melita, as a long-time State College resident who was very passionate about the outdoors, wildlife, horticulture, sports (especially Field Hockey because this is Jackie's sport) and shopping!

As a donor-advised fund, the recipient organizations may change each year depending on where Jackie, the donor advisor, sees the greatest need.
