Capital Campaign

Building a state-of-the-art community center, will require the community to come together in support of this project.

The project will be funded through a variety of sources.  The Township has developed a funding approach that includes local and state resources in addition to a capital campaign.  In order to make this project a reality, a community-based capital campaign goal of $5,000,000 has been established and so far, close to 3 million dollars has been pledged.

Your help will make it happen.  We encourage you to consider investing in the future of recreation in our community.  Your tax-deductible donation to the Hershey Community Center Capital Campaign is an investment in transforming lives. It is an investment in a healthier community – for today and for decades to come.

Several naming opportunities have been established for leadership level donations and pledge payments may be made at the frequency of your choosing over five-years’ time.

We envision a community where recreational opportunities abound and community groups have ample space to continue the work of making Derry Township an incredible place to live, work and play.  The new Hershey Community Center will provide just that for our community.

Won’t you be a part of this effort?  Your generous consideration and support of  any amount is deeply appreciated.


If you are making a donation and wish to reserve a naming opportunity, please note your preference. You will receive confirmation of your selection and if the commemorative opportunity is no longer available, a campaign volunteer will be in touch to discuss other options.
