JB Griffin Impact

Supporting Charities in 4 States

JB Griffin held a lifelong passion for his local community and by bearing his name we seek to embody that same passion. We are proud to focus our support on the 501(c)(3) organizations who serve Centre County, PA, the place JB called home and in the communities Shaner does business. Over the years, we have also been able to support 501(c)(3) organizations in Florida, Virginia, and Tennessee. We are continuously looking for ways to expand our reach.  

Supporting 21 Communities

The JB Griffin Foundation's grants have helped to support 21 communities of people. These grants have covered nursing and therapy services, hospice care and bereavement services as well as helped to cover basic expenses of cancer patients to avoid eviction, utility shut-offs and gas to travel for treatments.

The Foundation has also provided emergency assistance to people facing a medical crisis, personal disaster, hunger, homelessness, abuse and addiction and has helped highlight the importance of mental, emotional and social-well being for youth through art and education programs, creative expression and survivors of suicide support groups.
