Each year, the Lancaster County Community Foundation hosts The Extraordinary Give, the nation’s largest per capita one-day online fundraiser that benefits over 500 non-profit organizations. 

Every dollar donated online is “stretched” by more than $500,000 from the Lancaster County Community Foundation (LCCF), along with sponsors Rodgers & Associates, the High Foundation, and other supporters. Last year’s event broke a record by raising over 13.4 million dollars for area non-profit organizations.

Appearing on the program to discuss the one-day fundraising campaign are Sam Bressi, CEO Lancaster County Community Foundation, and Tracy Cutler, Executive Vice President, Lancaster County Community Foundation.

Smart Talk will also host several area non-profits who will talk about their organizations and the impact of the fundraising event. COBYS Family Services Executive Director Mark Cunningham and Melanie Rankin, Adoption Coordinator will share details about their mission. Omega Horse Rescue Founder Kelly Smith and board member Dr. Nikki Scherrer, DVM, are also on the program, in addition to Stacie Reidenbaugh, President & CEO, 10,000 Friends of Pennsylvania, along with Laurie Crawford, Board Member and research project manager with Penn State REACH.
