Social Mission

At Fig, we envision a different kind of publication….one that energizes a thriving, sustainable local economy. We believe in the power of creative thinking to transform a community.

For us this means finding ways to support non-profit organizations that foster creativity and educate people about the power of innovation as foundations for a vibrant city. We believe that awareness of opportunities helps people to make informed personal choices or to find the encouragement they need to make a difference.

We have created partnerships with three local non-profits whose missions support this goal. These organizations are making a difference in the Lancaster community. Individually, they offer opportunities for enrichment and education. Together, they strengthen the fabric of our community.

Sparked by this greater purpose, Fig aims to demonstrate mutually beneficial ways that we can work together and empower positive change. Make a choice to support a creative community and help build healthy, productive lives.

Since 2009, Fig has worked with 21 organizations, including Cleft Palate Clinic, Milago House, A Week Away, Friendship Heart Gallery, Lancaster Public Library, Children Deserve A Chance Foundation, Aaron’s Acres, Girls On The Run, Power Packs Project, PRiMA Theatre Company, and Music for Everyone, to name a few.

We're thrilled to announce that in 2016 we'll be celebrating the missions of The Mix at Arbor Place, Excentia, and YWCA of Lancaster!
