A community-wide celebration of giving

In one extraordinary day each year, our community is transformed into a community-wide celebration of generosity that supports more than 500 community benefit organizations serving our region. In just 7 days of giving, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $42 million for more than 500 organizations, and engaged more than 30,000 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.

How does it work?
