We want our communities to thrive and to continue to experience an improving quality of life. We must continue to do what we can do to engage, to collaborate, to lead, to inspire, and to commit to making a positive difference. We are in a community, and we need to embrace it!
Lancaster City is the heart and soul of the County. High Foundation provides funding to create a vibrant, thriving City. We invest, too, in Lancaster County and other communities in which the High companies provide economic investment and employment.
In building the Bridge to Opportunity, initiating City revitalization at the grassroots level is key. This means investing in initiatives that support healthy neighborhoods and forging deep and enduring partnerships with like-minded local organizations.
Our long-standing partnerships have already effected much change. We value the conversations that spark innovation and ideas that serve as catalysts for the change we make together. We value being at the table with a diverse and inclusive representation of leaders and stakeholders who share the goal of eliminating poverty and achieving social change.
Lancaster County Community Foundation manages more than $115 million in community assets that benefit our community. Each year, the Community Foundation impacts the quality of life in Lancaster County by improving our health, education, youth programs, environment, neighborhoods, and access to arts and culture as well as the creator and host of the Extraordinary Give.
Since 2012, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $63 million to benefit more than 500 organizations in Lancaster County, many of which are supported by High Foundation. The 24-hour online event brings people together and engages them in the important act of supporting their community.
As a Presenting Sponsor, High Foundation joins Rodgers & Associates, with each contributing $100,000 or more to the Extraordinary Give. Partnering with the Lancaster County Community Foundation and other corporate sponsors, this group creates a pool of funds exceeding $500,000 that enables every dollar donated during the event to be stretched to go the extra mile for causes in our community.Visit The Extra Give
