Who is Ethel Beaver?
Ethel Beaver started the fund in 1948 as the director of Child Welfare Services (the predecessor to Children and Youth Services). Known as "Mother Beaver" to many, Beaver was concerned that the children of Centre County needed more than just the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter, so the "Fun Fund" was created to provide money to the county's foster children for expenses that foster families would not normally be able to afford.
