A community-wide celebration of giving

In one extraordinary day each year, for 24 hours, our community is transformed into a community-wide celebration of generosity that supports more than 500 community benefit organizations serving our region. In just 10 days of giving, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $75 million for more than 500 organizations, and engaged more than 40,000 donors across Lancaster County.
 
The Community Foundation is committed to helping you make a difference and strengthening our local community benefit sector. The Extraordinary Give is a special way to bring these two goals together; a powerful day to show support to our local community and a way to give a little extra to those who need it most.

Thanks to the creativity and generosity of our community, in 2021, we were able to raise more than $15.8 million dollars and engage more than 30,000 donors!

Mark your calendars for November 18, 2022!

THANK YOU for being part of 2021 Extraordinary Give! This year was more important than ever to help support each other: caring for each other’s health, supporting our local businesses, and especially, supporting the many causes on this site that care for people and enrich our lives.

Together, we made this year the biggest ExtraGive yet: more than 30,000 donors gave over $15 million to support 516 organizations! That’s extraordinary!
