Get Involved

The Lower Dauphin Falcon Foundation (LDFF) is an independent public charitable organization dedicated to encouraging community-wide participation and philanthropy to enhance and expand enrichment opportunities for all students in the Lower Dauphin (LD) School District. It is the LDFF's goal to ensure long-range financial flexibility for schools within the district.


Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)
As a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization, the LDFF has opportunities for businesses to donate and receive tax credit. The following are the programs designated for these funds: technology enhancement (robotics; distance learning tools and programs) and academic enrichment (pre-kindergarten program, Falcon Foundation Camp, summer programs, guest speakers, etc.).

Volunteer (Board and Committees)
The LDFF is always in need of energetic, enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to the LD community. If  you are interested in joining our board, please complete a LDFFBoardInterestForm and email it to The board of directors meet five times during the school year and support the Foundation by providing strategic and operational mission-based leadership, advice and support.
