What is The Extraordinary Give?
The Extraordinary Give is run by the Lancaster County Community Foundation. This foundation was founded in 1924 with the intent to improve our education, health, youth program, neighborhood, and environment. It has done just that in the past 92 years of service. This Community Foundation manages about $95 million in community assets in order to make Lancaster the extraordinary place that it is. The Foundation invests a portion of its money into community organizations to meet the needs of Lancaster County as it continues to grow and emerge.
