Grants and Scholarships
We are excited to offer grant opportunities for community benefit organizations (CBOs) and scholarships for students.
We know that CBOs have unparalleled knowledge and experience working with Lancaster residents and addressing the needs of our community. At the same time, Lancaster County students are part of the community, and the generation who will be tackling the needs of the future.
Rooted in our organizational philosophy and values, the Community Foundation has launched a new approach we’re calling Activate and Amplify. Moving forward, we’re committed to a cultivating a culture of equitable and inclusive opportunities in Lancaster County and we hope to partner with you.
Grants for 2020 will open March 3rd, more information will be available soon!
