In 2010, S. Dale High and his family formed a charitable organization dedicated to eliminating poverty and revitalizing the Lancaster community. High Foundation is a new chapter in High Family philanthropy, succeeding an organization of a similar name founded in 1980.

A visionary by nature, S. Dale High’s commitment to improving his community served as a driving force for his success as an entrepreneur and philanthropist.

The primary goal of the Foundation is to bridge the gap from poverty to sustainability. Through grant programs, the Foundation engages with community groups and other stakeholders with a common interest in eliminating poverty and increasing vibrancy in the Lancaster community and beyond.
