The ExtraGive | November 17, 2023

Lancaster County’s 24-hour Day of Giving. The ExtraGive is an invitation to every individual who cares about a cause to join forces and give a little EXTRA. Every dollar will be stretched by Lancaster County Community Foundation’s shared stretch pool.

Why Support SWAN During ExtraGive?

The 24-hour Lancaster ExtraGive is where we raise the most to support our music programs and students.

By supporting SWAN, you will:

– Give joy and hope to children in crisis
– Empower children to rise above their present and difficult circumstances
– Impact students’ scholastic, emotional, and social development

If you haven’t donated to SWAN before, the ExtraGive is a great time to get involved! Please consider supporting our students this year.

My wife and I have been supporting SWAN for several years now. We are drawn to SWAN’s incredible music ministry for children of incarcerated parents. The School District of Lancaster is blessed to have Diana Vuolo and her talented team dedicated to these children to give them something to look forward to and a sense of accomplishment. We wish SWAN well in the upcoming Extraordinary Give!
