The Improved Milton Experience (TIME), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization,  invites you to support our collaborative campaign to create opportunity and innovation for residents of the Greater Susquehanna Valley region.

This capital campaign is divided into three projects that enhance regional collaboration and honors the past, present, and future of our Central Pennsylvania communities:


Sponsorships for this Project are in direct collaboration with and supports the expansion of DIG Furniture Bank, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides gently used furniture and household items to local families in need.


Project 1:

Degenstein Downtown Center

TIME has leased two buildings on South Front Street in downtown Milton, to renovate for the benefit of the community. The Degenstein Downtown Center, named in honor of our Legacy Sponsors at The 1994 Charles B. Degenstein Foundation, will be the new home of DIG Furniture Bank, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides furniture and household items to local families in need, as well as an additional regional business incubator and office space in partnership with Bucknell’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC).


Project 2:

Central PA MakerSpace Academy*

The Moose Lodge in downtown Milton hosts the main office of the MakerSpace Academy, an initiative that engages community members of all ages and abilities in five trades-focused learning modules. A gift towards this Project is an investment in skill building and trades that honors the manufacturing industry of Central PA’s past while paving the way for opportunity for the future.

Project 3:

Center for Environmental Studies*

TIME has acquired the former Milton Municipal Building on South Front Street, along the Susquehanna River, to renovate into a space for regional studies in partnership with Bucknell University. This Project will support expanded educational opportunities for Bucknell students studying the local cultural and environmental past and present through this unique future Field Station.


We are actively seeking collaborative funding partnerships from local foundations, businesses, and individuals invested in improving the quality of life for residents in our region.
