Grant Reviewers Training

“I’ve chosen to get involved with the Community Foundation because it gives you a bit of a birds eye view as to what’s going on in the community and how to impact people’s lives directly”

This training page is designed to help current grant reviewers prepare for the grant review process. Each year we will update resources as grant programs, strategies, and processes change.

Become a Grant Reviewer

“I’m reminded of the value of each of us making a personal decision to make a difference doing what we can, with what we have, right where we are”

Want to help from home? Grant review volunteers assist us with reading and scoring grant applications, and they are an essential part of our decision making process. As members of the Lancaster County community, volunteers are able to provide valuable insight on the needs of the community.

Learn more about how to become a grant reviewer.

Volunteer at ExtraGive Fest

“My favorite part about it volunteering at the extraordinary give is the party atmosphere, the excitement, the whole culture” 

In one extraordinary day each year, for 24 hours, our community is transformed into a community-wide celebration of generosity that supports more than 500 community benefit organizations serving our region. In just 10 days of giving, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $75 million for more than 500 organizations, and engaged more than 40,000 donors across Lancaster County. ExtraGive Fest is a way of celebrating that generosity and it is a high-energy party unlike any other – we’re celebrating giving in Lancaster! Volunteers are a huge part of making this event a success.
On November 17, 2023 help us make EXTRAGIVE Fest happen!

Learn more about the Extraordinary give and how you can help us make this day happen.
