Organizations and individuals across our community offer a variety of ways to experience and honor Juneteenth We've gathered some local celebrations here:
Regional foundations and grantmakers, including the Community Foundation, were privileged to attend a briefing from PA is Ready!, a community-led network and participatory grantmaking serving Pennsylvania’s diverse immigrant and refugee communities. In the presentation, members of the PA is Ready! coalition shared how communities are mobilizing to build on their existing strengths and provide a forum for discussion on how funders can support these efforts, as well as discuss the ongoing needs and barriers they face in social and political contexts.
In the spirit of instilling a commitment to community across generations, Cathie Rosado is helping her son Caleb open his own fund to support his passions.
The BB&T now Truist Economic Growth Fund at the Lancaster County Community Foundation has provided nearly $850,000 to support seven higher education institutions committed to supporting career placement opportunities for Lancaster youth.
In the wake of this, the YWCA is reimagining its 23rd Race Against Racism to promote safe participation, connect us to local history, and inspire action. As a Community Foundation, we are committed to a journey of learning, and emboldening antiracist efforts in Lancaster County, and we are proud to support this year's Race as a Champion Sponsor!

For nearly 10 years, the Community Foundation is proud to support ASSETS' Great Social Enterprise Pitch: a friendly business competition designed to spur ideas, launch dreams, and expand the way Lancaster County does business by harnessing the creativity of social enterprise.
The pandemic has changed so much about the way we communicate and connect in fundamental ways. With the increased digitization of human contact, it's made receiving mail a rare treat for so many of us. And, around this time each year, the Community Foundation receives just about the best mail you could hope for: dozens of thank you letters from students who are part of the Pennsylvania Future Farmers of America.
