Improving the Community Through Leadership and Commitment

High Foundation’s mission is to align with community organizations to support positive change within areas of identified need. With deep roots in Lancaster, the Foundation is committed to the community’s growth and vitality.

In 2019, the Foundation contributed more than $2 million to improve the lives of people who live and work in Lancaster. The work of the Foundation is complemented by charitable giving of the High Companies and concentrates on Education, Health & Human Services, Historic Preservation, Arts & Culture, and Social Enterprise.

By helping to fund programs such as the Community Action Partnership, Children Deserve a Chance Foundation, Spanish American Civic Association, and Water Street Mission, the community has seen significant progress through High Foundation’s donations. The Foundation also has a scholarship program benefiting the children of High co-workers, with more than $800,000 awarded since 1983.
