LANCASTER, Pa. (PRWEB) December 01, 2020
On Friday, November 20th, PlanIt Schedule participated in a local fundraiser event: The Extraordinary Give. The company contributed a total of $2,000, distributed throughout multiple organizations involved in the event. The Extra Give occurs every year and is typically held in person and online. This year, they left it up to individual organizations to decide if they wanted to hold in-person events that follow the CDC/local health requirements.
This event is held in effort to raise money for hundreds of community benefit organizations. This includes organizations like Lancaster EMS and Lancaster City Police Foundation. The total amount raised this year was over $13 million - a record high.
The online Extraordinary Give platform allows anyone the option to donate to a whole list of organizations who have registered and been approved. Individuals can choose one or multiple organizations to donate to. However, each organization will receive a lump sum in addition to the individual donations, due to the “stretch pool.”
Every dollar donated to local organizations is stretched by a pool of funds from the Lancaster County Community Foundation, their presenting sponsors, and other community supporters. Each organization's “stretch” depends on how much was raised in total donations. For example, if an organization receives 4% of the total donations raised by all organizations, that organization will receive an additional 4% of the stretch pool.
