YORK, Pa. — Give Local York returns on May 6, and FOX43 is continuing to speak with some of the local nonprofits involved in the event.
The York Academy Foundation is a local nonprofit that is affiliated with York Academy Regional Charter School, a nonprofit, tuition-free, public, charter school that educates over 950 students, according to the school's website. The school offers challenging academics and innovative art, music, science, and design/engineering programming.
"As a result of last year's Give Local York donations, the York Academy Foundation established an Endowment Fund at the York County Community Foundation to support York Academy students forever," Lowe said in a statement.
