Barr Street Supports The Give Local Lancaster Campaign

What is Give Local Lancaster?

Give Local Lancaster is a 24-hour on-line giving event scheduled for May 1, 2018.

The Give Local Lancaster campaign is part of a national crowdfunding Giving Day experience which empowers individuals and businesses to donate to causes that matter to them. Giving Day provides an online, secure donation platform designed to connect individuals and business partners to local nonprofit organizations who are tackling our community’s most critical issues.

In 2017, Give Local Lancaster raised over $155,000 for 42 local nonprofit organizations. These funds came through the support of 1,015 gifts by individuals and 22 local businesses. Last year, our contributions came from donors across 14 states and 3 countries.

Give Local Lancaster is an opportunity to elevate philanthropy in our communities. Let’s make the 2018 campaign bigger and better than ever! Please consider giving to one or more of our registered nonprofit organizations on May 1, 2018. Together, we are making our communities great places to live, learn, work, and play.
