Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is one of ten non-profit recipients of the 2010 Sustainability Fund Match Grant from the Lancaster County Community Foundation (LCCF).
PCA&D will use the match to dramatically expand its annual fund improvement effort. The current strategic plan calls for this fund increase as part of its financial viability focus area. The college restructured its fundraising program and hired a new director in anticipation of this focus effort. This matching grant offers a defining-moment opportunity to shorten or exceed the time required to attain this goal.
From the news release of the LCCF (August 12, 2010):
"In Lancaster County, we are fortunate to have many strong nonprofit organizations working to benefit our community. Starting today, ten of these nonprofit organizations will be working to raise operating funds for a 1:1 match through the Lancaster County Community Foundation. In total, $1 million of new money will flow to these organizations in 2010-11.
"The matches are available through the newly-launched Non-profit Sustainability Matching Fund at the Community Foundation. The focus of the fund is to generate operating revenue for strong nonprofit organizations in Lancaster County to enhance their long-term sustainability. This is the first time the Foundation has provided operating support through a Community Foundation fund.
"The Community Foundation’s funding will support the missions of some of the many strong organizations in the county, assisting them in expanding their reach in the community to achieve long term organizational sustainability."
