Empowering a path to a brighter tomorrow




Serving the Greater Good

High Foundation's mission is to improve the lives of people who live and work in Lancaster City, Lancaster County, and other communities in which High companies provide economic investment and employment.


Our objective is to enact positive, systemic change that will last well beyond our lifetimes. We support and champion projects which enable the dignity, diversity, equality, and inclusion of all people and generate beneficial social and environmental impact. The Foundation engages with those sharing a common interest in eliminating poverty and creating a vibrant, thriving community for all.


High Foundation’s investment is distributed through grant programs and collaboration with community organizations and stakeholders. Foundation decisions are based on the core principle that all people are created equal and that we need to help shape a diverse and inclusive world for the next generation.
