The charity founded by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, is asking people to support another organization.
In a website message, "The Second Mile" is encouraging donors to support the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.
Many people in the State College area are urging "The Second Mile" to shut down or reorganize under a different name.
They fear it will always be tainted by its association with Sandusky.
The former coach and founder was arrested on 40 counts of child sexual abuse.
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape has helped sexual assault victims across the state for 36 years.
