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 9 days of giving, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $60 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 2020, we were able to raise more than $13.4 million dollars and engage more than 30,000 donors!

 

ExtraGive 2020

 
The pandemic inspired us to reimagine what our ExtraGive 2020 celebration looked like. As part of our celebration, we created ExtraGive CAST, a digital experience designed to offer a safe and socially distant way for the community to enjoy the 2020 Extraordinary Give from the comfort of their home! We made a call to the community to help us build this digital experience and to tell us why they give extra.
 
You delivered, and we were able to have an extraordinary celebration! CAST featured updates from the ExtraGive team across the community, live prize drawings, messages from participating organizations, art, music, poetry, and community created content.
