What We Do

What is a Community Foundation?

The Lancaster County Community Foundation’s mission is to embolden the extraordinary individuals and community benefit organizations (CBOs) that already exist all over the county. Through grantmaking, managing investments, and providing philanthropic counsel to organizations and individuals, community foundations are imperative for the stability of generations to come. 

While community foundations play a pivotal role in the charitable ecosystem of the region, our largest asset is you- your family, your neighbors, your fellow Lancastrians is what makes this community so valuable. We see community investment as an essential part of moving towards a more equitable society and a place where everyone feels that they belong.  When we feel a sense of pride and ownership in our community, we work better together.
