Yesterday’s Extra Ordinary GIVE broke the record again. The generosity of 23,544 Lancaster County persons (and some corporate persons) is incredible. Looking through the list of receiving not-for-profits, there are interesting ones including a seemingly large proportion of faith-based programs.
- four fire departments
- two emergency medical services providers
- More than a few not-for-profits that are based outside of Lancaster County
- one economic development corporation
- 15 community libraries
- a dozen or so churches and ministries.
The largest single not-for-profit, Children Deserve A Chance Foundation – Attollo reeled in $549,470.91; apparently eight of the 500 participating organizations failed to get a single contribution.
The Columbia-focused not-for-profit entities captured over $31,300.
