Doing Good in Potter County
Potter County
No one knows a community better than the people who call it home. That’s what makes the Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers so effective. We leverage this knowledge to make tangible differences in the lives of our neighbors.

This approach with a central office in Sayre, PA unites the best thinking of local leadership with efficient, centralized resources to mobilize philanthropy for the enduring benefit of our communities.

Potter County has a culture of responsibility, mutual respect, strong work ethic and community activities built around a hometown atmosphere. A volunteer advisory board works actively to increase charitable giving and award grants to local worthy causes and projects that are addressing emerging needs and future opportunities in our community.
