The Extraordinary Give | November 19, 2021

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 of a HALF MILLION DOLLARS.

Why Support SWAN During ExtraGive 2021?

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

By supporting SWAN, you will:

– Support the most vulnerable children in Lancaster County
– Give the gift of music to children who need a positive outlet
– Improve students’ emotional awareness & social skills through music

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

“I’ve attended some local gatherings to see SWAN’s presentations on what they’re doing within the community. I also have known some of the music instructors and heard their stories and involvement. I am so thankful for SWAN’s involvement with children with parental incarceration. The impact they’re making in children’s lives is indescribable.” – Hannah Brown (Google review)
