UPDATE: Several SWAN supporters have pledged to match your donation up to $5,200 this Friday, November 18th. Have your donation doubled by visiting SWAN4kidsExtraGive.org on the 18th at which time the donation button will go live.

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 18 on your calendar and consider making a contribution.

Rally behind SWAN on Nov. 18th 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.
