Each year, the Solanco Education Foundation awards $1,000 student scholarships, and $500 academic venture grants to 10 Solanco teachers so they can implement innovative educational programs in their classrooms.

The foundation’s major fundraising activities include Solanco School Spirit Night at the Lancaster Barnstormers, which this year will be Thursday, May 19, and participation in the Extraordinary Give in November. These events are successful each year thanks to the tremendous support provided by local business and individual sponsors.
