The Extraordinary Give is a day of camaraderie and activity where Lancaster County comes together to support the non-profit organizations that are important to our community. Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is one of the region’s leading cultural centers., offering signature eventsartist talksclasses, workshops, and gallery events to the public. In addition, The Mosaic Project provides scholarships for under-served middle school and high school students so they spend may a day with professional artists and our Designathon provides real-world experience for students by matching them with non-profits in need of professional-quality design work.

Joe Columbo, Alumni Ambassador, Class of ’08, encourages everyone connected with the college to join him in supporting PCA&D on this single day of giving:

As an illustrator making my way up in the ranks I understand the value of budgeting and expenses.  The Extra Give is a great way to help create more opportunities for the College and is light on the wallet. The minimum donation is only $25 and is done online at ExtraGive.org.  Donations strengthen the Annual Fund which supports scholarships, student activities, the Gallery and all of the things that help make PCA&D a great place of creativity and community.  Already being part our PCA&D family means you can make the donation in honor of a faculty member, your major or your class year.


Visit ExtraGive.org on November 20th from your computer, smartphone, or other device.  Choose the PCA&D page, and make an online donation.  Each organization receives a percentage of the stretch pool, so if PCA&D raises 3% of the day’s donations, we will receive 3% of the $250,000 stretch pool.  Plus any EXTRA money from the $50,000 in prizes!
