A bit overwhelmed? Donate to the Lancaster County Community Foundations endowment.

The I Love Lancaster fund supports ongoing and emerging needs and opportunities of Lancaster County as advised by the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors. These dollars enable us to make an investment in change, an investment in the certainty and sustainability of Lancaster County for the generations to come.

While the Foundation has many existing funds with families, individuals, and organizations- this endowed fund gives our Board and Staff the opportunity to use discretion for capacity building and community-centered investment. After the outbreak of COVID-19, our endowment provided the backbone of the Lancaster Cares initiative by allowing us to invest an immediate $250,000 to assist individuals and families with emerging needs concerning food, housing, job loss, and health care.

Through community conversations and interactions with individuals across Lancaster County, we identity catalysts and harness energy that already exists within the community. The I Love Lancaster Fund is a direct route to donate to our endowment so you can support the most flexible and responsive way to meet emerging needs in Lancaster County. This fund keeps the vibrancy of our community as its priority. 

We hope you trust our expertise and believe in the passion that is already existent in Lancaster.
