About the Community Foundation

Lancaster County Community Foundation

At the Community Foundation, we help people who love Lancaster County invest in the future of our community. Since 1924 we’ve been helping people establish permanent funds for the causes they care about and making grant investments to organizations that create a stronger and more vibrant quality of life for all of us.

Today we hold more than $70 million dollars in community assets that help support Lancaster County every year. These resources are unique because they mean that this year, and every year, the Community Foundation will invest a portion of this money back into community benefit organizations and the emerging needs of Lancaster County.

MISSION: To advance the vitality and well-being of the people of Lancaster County by inspiring generosity and by being responsible stewards of gifts for today and tomorrow.
VISION: To create extraordinary community through inspired giving for sustainable, meaningful impact.
