Giving Back in Lancaster

Here at Fig, we have long believed that the power of creative thinking can transform a community. Sparked by this greater purpose, we are committed to two important initiatives that contribute to the vitality of Lancaster City—our Fig Social Mission Partner program, which supports local nonprofits, and The Fig Tree, a Donor Advised Fund that awards grants to local small businesses in the City. 

The Fig Tree

Fig has been on a mission for nearly two decades to celebrate entrepreneurs and contribute to the vitality of Lancaster City through Fig magazine.

In 2023, Fig Industries—creators and producers of Fig Lancaster—partnered with our friends at Lancaster County Community Foundation to plant The Fig Tree, a Donor Advised Fund that awards grants each year to support small business owners so new ideas can take root and grow, and Lancaster City can continue to thrive. These grants will boost improvements, expansions, and innovations.

This is our way of leaving a legacy of support and encouragement for small businesses like ours to ensure the Lancaster City small business community continues to thrive while providing a way for other businesses and individuals (like you) to get involved.

Fig Social Mission Partner

Since 2005, Fig has partnered with a local nonprofit each year to be our Social Mission Partner. We lend our Partners the powerful and effective reach of the Fig brand and voice. They, in turn, strengthen the fabric of our local community. Our Social Mission Partners receive a full year in Fig for free as well as 10% of all subscriptions received within that year.

Here are a few of our past Social Mission Partners:
