Smart Talk road trip: The Extraordinary Give

Written by Merideth Bucher, Producer | Nov 16, 2018 4:39 AM

What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, November 16, 2018:

Sponsored by Lancaster County Community Foundation, the 2018 Extraordinary Give is the region's largest day of online giving to directly benefit more than 450 participating regional nonprofit organizations.

For 24-hours only on November 16, individuals can visit  and donate to an organization of their choice; supporting kids, health and education, the environment, animals and the arts. Every dollar donated will be "stretched" by $500,000 from the Lancaster County Community Foundation (LCCF) and sponsors Rodgers & Associates, the High Foundation, and other supporters. A full list of participating organizations from around Central Pennsylvania, including WITF, is found here:

Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County's largest day of giving. In just six days of giving over the past six years, the Extraordinary Give raised more than $31 million for more than 500 organizations.

Smart Talk is live Friday morning from Tellus360 in the heart of downtown Lancaster. Tellus360 is an Irish pub and music venue, with a focus on a "community-driven life where everyone is equal, where anything is possible, and where life is good for all at the expense of none."

A community-centered business in Lancaster County is a perfect location to highlight the seventh annual Extraordinary Give fundraising campaign.

Appearing on Smart Talk to discuss the campaign are Sam Bressi, CEO Lancaster County Community Foundation, Tracy Cutler, VP Communications & Donor Cultivation Lancaster County Community Foundation, Rick Rodgers of Rodgers and Associates, and Robin Stauffer, Executive Director High Foundation. 

Also, joining Smart Talk is Lancaster Mayor Danene Sorace, Evalina Dombrowski, executive director Clare House, Karen Peiffer, executive director Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, and Heather Hinkel, director for the Children's Dyslexia Center of Lancaster.
