The Gettysburg Connection Community Outreach Fund

Gettysburg Connection is pleased to sponsor the Gettysburg Connection Community Outreach Fund, a 501(c3) nonprofit that shares trustworthy local news in Adams County.

All donations to are used to share information about health, education, transportation, housing, employment, financial security, and other topics of interest with Adams County residents who may not have easy access to this information.

Our outreach is directed in particularly to:

Over 7,000 Latino residents of the county are often hindered in their ability to access information by language issues and lack of available computers and broadband. We reach out to these populations, in collaboration with local non-profits including Healthy Adams County, Casa de Cultura, and SCCAP through our Pasa La Voz text messaging service,

Younger readers, including those in their teens and 20s, who want and deserve access to trustworthy local news but who usually get their access through social media platforms. GCCOP creates videos, stories, and other informative local media directed at this population.

Older readers. The median age in Adams County is over 44 years and many of our elderly residents live under the federal poverty level. Many of these residents do not have adequate internet service to receive news via websites. We will collaborate with local non-profits to reach this population through social media and the US Postal service.

If you believe that Gettysburg Connection should try to connect all members of our community, please help us with a tax-deductible donation.

The Gettysburg Connection Community Outreach Fund (GCCOF) is a charitable program administered in collaboration with the Local Media Foundation.
