Jim and Sally Saxton, long-term YMCA supporters, came to the Community Foundation because they wanted to make an even bigger impact on the organization they love.

They created the James W. and Sally C. Saxton Opportunity Fund to benefit the YMCA. The fund will support the Y in meeting the most critical community needs as determined on an annual basis. Recognizing that community needs will change over time – and that the Y must remain creative and flexible in its approach to serving the mind, body and spirit of Lancaster – the Saxtons' created a permanently endowed fund with the future in mind. The fund may support youth and after school programs, nurturing the Christian potential of children, or strengthening and supporting families.
