EMM is participating in the Extraordinary Give, Lancaster County’s largest day of giving. During the 24 hours that make up November 16, 2018, visit this page to make a charitable gift of at least $25 designated for EMM. Then, the Lancaster County Community Foundation and their sponsors will stretch your charitable gift.
New this year
Stop by 450 N. Prince St., Lancaster, Pa. from 5 to 9 p.m. on November 16 for an Extraordinary Give party with EMM. More details coming soon.
How are charitable gifts "stretched" through the Extraordinary Give?
Thanks to the Community Foundation and sponsors, a pool of $500,000 is available for this year's Extraordinary Give. Participating organizations like EMM will receive a prorated portion of the "stretch pool"; for example, if EMM receives 3% of the total charitable gifts raised during the Extraordinary Give, it will receive 3% of the stretch pool. Also, EMM has the chance to win/earn prize money throughout the Extraordinary Give.
How can I help EMM win/earn prize money?
The Extraordinary Give and sponsors will give nonprofits an additional $50,000 in prize money on November 16. They give some prizes randomly, and they award some based on how many unique donors give to the participating nonprofits.
Charitable gifts are tax deductible, and you'll receive an email receipt immediately. Learn more here.
