Attollo Raises Record Amount with New Film

Organized by our client, the Lancaster County Community Foundation, the Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County’s largest day of giving. In just 7 days, the Extra Give has raised more than $41 million for more than 500 organizations. The Lancaster County Community Foundation is committed to helping Lancaster residents make a difference and strengthening the local community benefit sector. The Extraordinary Give is a special way to bring these two goals together; a powerful day to show support to the community and a way to give a little extra to those who need it most.


For this years’ Extra Give, the community raised over $10.2 million in just 24 hours! We are absolutely blown away by the generosity of our community. Thank you to the Lancaster County Community Foundation for allowing us to help capture this years’ Extra Give alongside other fellow Lancaster filmmakers. And CONGRATS TO OUR CLIENT, Attollo, FOR RAISING OVER HALF A MILLION DOLLARS (the most out of any participating organization)! We could not be prouder to live and work in Lancaster, PA.


“For this year’s Extra Give, we are inspired by those who strive to step up and speak out, by those who do what others won’t, those who strive to accept difficult challenges and chase goals “not because they are easy but because they are hard.” With the same innovative mentality it took to achieve a feat like putting a man on the moon, we at Attollo are inspired to tackle a new challenge: “If it’s never been done, be the first.” This year we are inspired by our Attollo Scholars. Scholars like Madison who started the first women’s empowerment group in her school; like Andrew who will be the first in his family to go to college; like Vanessa who is a first-generation American and leader in her school; and Scholars like Sameeha and Jamar who are entrepreneurs creating the first sheet-music page turner. All who can now say, “I am the first.” – Attollo

To coincide with their “I am the first” Extra Give campaign, MAKE produced a film with actual Attollo Scholars to help encourage donors and spread Attollo’s message.
