Reimagining Our Community (ROC) Giving Circle

The Reimagining Our Community (ROC) Giving Circle is a way for the community to support BIPOC small business through collective philanthropy. The Giving Circle is managed by the ROC Cohort. Its purpose is to facilitate funding to initiatives that support BIPOC-owned small businesses. Money will be awarded to existing 501c3 non-profit organizations that have or wish to develop programming, services, or products to support the development and sustainability of BIPOC-owned small businesses in Lancaster County. The goal is that these funds will bridge gaps within existing resources to ensure that services are equitable in access, participation, and implementation.

Giving Circles bring a group of people with shared values together around a cause to collectively discuss and decide on where to make a pooled gift. Learn more about giving circles. 

The ROC Cohort is a cross-sector collaboration of organizations, businesses, and community partners. The vision of the ROC cohort is that Lancaster County is a nurturing environment for BIPOC-owned small businesses to thrive. Our priorities are to strengthen trust among resource providers and BIPOC-owned small businesses, build equitable access to capital, and to strengthen community for BIPOC-owned small businesses.
