The Steinman Foundation, in carrying forward the vision of James Hale Steinman and John Frederick Steinman, seeks to improve the quality of life in the communities that comprise Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
The Steinman Foundation believes that the diversity of the Lancaster County community is a fundamental strength. Only through intentional integration of diversity, equity, and inclusion as values and practices can philanthropic and charitable endeavors ensure substantive change in our community.
The Steinman Foundation’s grant-making currently highlights three strategic program areas: Early Childhood Education, Economic and Workforce Development, and Community Journalism and Media Literacy.
The Foundation may award grants for specific programs or for general operating support, with priority typically being given to programmatic opportunities, rather than general support. Priority is also given to collaborative programs that engage multiple partner organizations.
