People connect with the Community Foundation in many ways.

In 2015, the 24-hour community celebration of giving benefited more than 350 local organizations. Every dollar that was donated at on November 20 was stretched with $350,000 from the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Rodgers & Associates, and our community sponsors. People from across the county came together to connect, engage, and support causes they cared about, making the 2015 Extraordinary Give our biggest yet!
