Introducing The Fig Tree

Where new ideas take root

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

To expand our mission, Fig has partnered with our friends at Lancaster County Community Foundation to plant The Fig Tree, a Donor Advised Fund that will award 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.

It’s our way of leaving a legacy of support and encouragement for small business owners, to help ensure the Lancaster City small business community continues to thrive, and to provide a way for other businesses and individuals (like you) to get involved.

At Fig Industries, we’ve always believed that one big idea can change everything and that every business, even a small one like ours, has the power to have a positive impact on their community.

Your tax-deductible donation will go through the Community Foundation to benefit small business owners. Grants will be determined by a community panel and will be awarded each fall starting in 2024.

You can give directly here.

Exciting news! Lancaster City businesses Cargas, Trout, and Work Wisdom, as well as a few visionary individuals, have already committed to joining us to make an even greater impact.


The Lancaster County Community Foundation is proud to partner with The Fig Tree to cultivate their passion and support for new ideas. The Community Foundation works with individuals, families, and business leaders in the Lancaster community to support causes that are important to them.

In 2024, the Community Foundation will celebrate 100 years of caring for our community’s endowment. Starting now, we have a chance to imagine how we can work together to change the next 100 years.

Every gift to our community’s endowment builds resiliency and resources to support Lancaster County year after year. No matter how you choose to give, partnering with the Community Foundation means small gifts don’t stay small and big gifts get bigger.

Like The Fig Tree, they can help you plant a seed and watch it grow into something sweet that will strengthen and sustain our community for generations.

Get a sneak peek at how you can get involved in 2024 and the many ways you can support Lancaster County now and forever at ChangetheNext100.org.
