Supporters & Donors 

Ridgelines receives generous support from individuals and granting agencies. We are grateful to all those who enable us to work towards a central Pennsylvania in which imaginative acts have public consequence, in which the language arts are valued as critical forms of information, and in which everyone has equal voice.




Ridgelines' 2022 programs are supported in part by the Centre Foundation's J. Alvin and Vera E. Knepper Hawbaker Memorial Endowment Fund; by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; and by a 2022 Challenge America award from the NEA.
