Lancaster Rec Foundation Fund

About this organization

Operating since 1909, Lancaster Recreation Commission (Lancaster Rec) provides neighborhood-based programs for all ages with an emphasis on affordable programs for children at schools, parks, playgrounds, and other facilities. Programs include sports instruction, sports leagues, senior centers, fitness classes, summer playgrounds, day camps, full-day child care, before/after school care, and special community events. Lancaster Rec also serves as a conduit for the Summer Foods Program in Lancaster, serving 80,000 meals to children in need.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit agency formed by the city of Lancaster, School District of Lancaster, and Lancaster Township, Lancaster Rec strives to improve the quality of life for every member of the community. Through its programming, Lancaster Rec creates opportunities for memories to be created; bringing people together to make the community stronger.


What is the goal of this endowment fund?

Lancaster Rec aims to provide programming to the community for the long-term. Growing this endowment fund will allow Lancaster Rec to continue to operate for another 100 years. Focusing on fiscal resilience will allow for continued innovation and provide scholarship opportunities for children. Gifts to the Lancaster Rec Foundation Endowment are an opportunity for donors to maximize their impact for the future of Lancaster residents.
