ACCF Giving Spree Announces Recipients of $2.14 Million in Charitable Donations

The Adams County Community Foundation’s (ACCF) 2020 virtual Giving Spree broke new ground in this year of social distancing, as donors nearly doubled the amount they gave in 2019.

The giving benefited 95 local nonprofits.

The biggest winner was the Adams County Historical Society with over $½ million in gifts.  The society is in the midst of a capital drive to find a new home for its collection of Civil War and other materials.

Also receiving gifts of over $50,000 were the Land Conservancy of Adams County, South Central Community Action Programs, the Adams County Arts Council, Adams Rescue Mission, Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen, and Gettysburg C.A.R.E.S.      

The giving this year came in two forms — “Today Gifts” to be used immediately by the recipient organization and “Forever Gifts” to create long-term endowments.

The following is a complete list of nonprofits and their total gifts received.
