Chip & Rebecca Cargas Fund


Improving income equity and wealth equity

This fund works with and provides grants to community benefit organizations that work to improve income equity and wealth equity. 

Focus areas include: 

  • helping businesses to engage their employees in creating more success and sharing that success broadly and generously through profit sharing and employee ownership
  • helping individuals with education and support to develop the attitudes, skills, and resources necessary for an in-demand and rewarding career as an employee and/or business owner.  

The thinking that inspired this focus:

It’s a great way to make our community more vibrant and safe for everyone. Rewarding careers include the pride of doing valuable work and sharing in the success that is being created. Employee ownership can help build wealth for all employees, not just a select few.


*Donations to this fund will go toward improving income equity and wealth equity. Chip & Rebecca Cargas are the founding donors and advisors for recommending grants from this fund. The successor advisor is the Lancaster County Community Foundation. A gift to this fund does not entitle the donor to any influence on how or where the dollars are invested.
