Give Local York Stretch Pools

Give Local York is York County's Annual Day of Giving. Last year, we raised nearly $1.5 million for over 200 organizations! This year, on May 3rd, 2019 every dollar you donate will be STRETCHED by a pool of cash and prizes from the York County Community Foundation, Philanthropic Endeavors, and our community sponsors!

The White Rose LEadership Institute is committed to helping you make a difference and strengthening our local community benefit sector. Give Local York is a special way to bring these two goals together; a powerful day to show support to our local community and a way to give more to those who need it most.


Give Local York Stretch Pool - $245,000

Supported by UPMC Pinnacle, The Powder Mill Foundation, The Pullo Family, The Arthur J. & Lee R. Glatfelter Foundation, The York County Community Foundation, Kinsley Construction, and The Stewart Companies

Stretch Pool funds will be shared by all participating nonprofits receiving donations during Give Local York. The amount received will be proportional to each organization’s percentage of the total funds raised during the event. For example, if your organization receives 2% of the total funds raised through Give Local you will receive 2% of the available bonus funds. Stretch Pool funds are based on gifts before fees are assessed. However to prevent substantial donations from skewing the allocation of Stretch Pool funds maximum donations of $10,000 per donor per nonprofit organization will qualify for matching funds. If a gift larger than $10,000 is made only the first $10,000 will be counted toward the Stretch Pool.
