Donations and Stretches and Prizes… Oh My!

Donations and Stretches and Prizes, Oh My!

Over the past few weeks, you have met some of the Individuals supported by Friendship Community and you have read their inspirational stories.

Now you are ready to make a difference in their lives. But how do you do that? What happens next?

First things first. To make a donation, watch this video ( for step by step instructions. Also, set your alarm clock! Friday, November 20 is just around the corner!

Then what happens to your gift? Your donation amount will be added to an overall “stretch pool”, a “pool” of funds from the Lancaster County Community Foundation (LCCF), presenting event sponsors Rodgers & Associates and the High Foundation and other community supporters. Friendship Community will receive a pro-rated portion of said pool (*based on how much money is raised in total donations). For example, if Friendship Community receives 10% of the total donations raised by all organizations participating in the ExtraGive, then we will receive 10% of the stretch pool on top of the original amount raised.

Also, when you make a gift during specific hours, Friendship Community can win additional prizes and awards! You, as the donor, don’t need to do anything beyond giving your financial support; members from LCCF and GiveGab (the online giving platform) will randomly choose organizations like Friendship Community throughout the 24 hours for prizes in a variety of categories. You can even divide your gift into smaller amounts throughout the day for more opportunities to win more prizes! Check out the specific hours and prize amounts here:

If you have any questions about your donations, do not hesitate to reach out to a member of the Development Team. You can email ( or call (717-656-2466).

Remember, when you give extra, EXTRAORDINARY things happen!

Thank you for your support of Friendship Community!
