Amplify Your Impact by giving through the Lancaster County Community Foundation

For nearly 100 years, people who care about Lancaster County have invested money with the Community Foundation. We care for more than 540 individual funds that support a wide variety of causes. Collectively, these dollars create our community’s endowment; a pool of resources invested for long-term growth, providing ongoing dollars to create positive impact in the county now and forever. We focus on inspired giving, responsible stewardship, and engaged communities to connect what giving makes possible now to the power it has to shape our shared future.

Shaping Our Shared Future

The Community Foundation uses the transformational potential of community-based philanthropy and the power of endowment to help shape a Lancaster County where every individual is valued, has a sense of belonging, and has the opportunity to thrive.
