What is it? The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County’s Largest Day of Giving. It’s an invitation to every individual who cares about a cause to join forces and give a little EXTRA. For 24-Hours the Extraordinary Give unites us in a true community celebration of giving. Make a donation (min. $25) and every dollar you donate will be stretched by $300,000 from the Lancaster County Community Foundation and their presenting sponsors. PLUS, there’s an additional $50,000 in prizes we can win just from your donation!

Your Giving Matters to SWAN: Did you know that 85% of our funding is provided by individuals like you? SWAN depends on individual donors to keep our mission running.

Please circle November 20 on your calendar and consider making a contribution.

Rally behind SWAN on Nov. 20th and become part of the solution! Children of the incarcerated become vulnerable to a host of difficulties due to no fault of their own and as a result are 70% more likely than other children to end up in prison. Can music help children succeed and beat those odds? Research concludes that it really can! Children who are part of a musical ensemble have the lowest lifetime and current use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs as compared to children involved in other activities.  Learning to play an instrument improves grades and school attendance.

SWAN’s goal is that none of our children would ever call a prison cell home.

Want to celebrate the Extraordinary Give with us? It will be a night of extraordinary performances as three non-profits come together to share their talent at The Trust Performing Arts Center. SWAN students, children from The Mix at Arbor Place, and the bands of Excentia will each take the stage to celebrate this night of extraordinary giving. Come enjoy the festivities and hear our SWAN students sing at 5:15, 6:30, and 7:45pm

The Trust Performing Arts Center, 37 N. Market St., Lancaster, PA 17603
