Get ready to give and make history! When you visit SWAN4kidsExtraGive.org and make a donation, every dollar you give will be stretched by Lancaster County Community Foundation’s shared stretch pool of a HALF MILLION DOLLARS. The earliest donations, starting at 12 midnight, will be matched 100% by SWAN’s Matching Gift Donors. The first $17,300 in donations will be MATCHED! Thanks to several generous donors. So GIVE early and your $10 becomes $20 or $100 become $200.

What is it? The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County’s 24-hour 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. In 2019 the Extraordinary Give was the biggest per capita giving day in the world!

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.

Rally behind SWAN on Nov. 20 and become part of the solution! On any given day in Lancaster, there are 4,600 children with a parent in prison. These children may experience the trauma of separation, abandonment, homelessness, and continued or deepening poverty. This often results in behavioral issues and substandard academic performance. Music is underscored by research to help children scholastically, emotionally, physically and socially.

This is your opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives. Mark your calendars, tell your friends, and GIVE Extraordinarily!
