The Extraordinary Give
Each November, the Lancaster County Community Foundation (LCCF) sponsors the Extraordinary Give, a one day celebration of philanthropy in this region. The LCCF coordinates, encourages, and incentivizes individuals to support any of the more than 500 non-profits in Lancaster County during this 24-hour expression of giving. In 2020, the Extra Give generated more than $13.4 million in gifts from more than 30,000 donors. The 2020 event was the largest per-capita giving day in the nation and one of the most successful 24-hour giving days on record!
In support of The Fund for Our Mother of Perpetual Help School, we participated in the Extra Give for the first time in 2020, and the results were astonishing! Thanks to generous Challenge Grant Donors who pledged to match, dollar for dollar, the first $45,000 of donations as well as a remarkable outpouring of love and support from alumni, parents, grandparents, parishioners, and friends, The Fund for OMPH School received a whopping $162,000 in gifts! That total placed OMPH School 14th out of the 522 organizations that participated.
We have committed to participating in the Extra Give on an annual basis, and we encourage all who value OMPH School to plan on joining in the fun and philanthropy by making a gift to support The Fund for OMPH School on that day. This year, Extra Give will take place on Friday November 19, 2021. Help us to make this a day of giving to remember!
