The Wildcat Foundation’s mission is to strengthen the educational, cultural, wellness and athletic programs of the Mechanicsburg Area School District.

Fundraising events and charitable contributions from individuals, groups and businesses provide the resources that allow the Foundation to achieve our mission.  The Foundation receives both designated and undesignated support.  Designated funds are restricted to the donor’s specific area(s) of interest; undesignated funds are unrestricted and may be used to fund any grant request.

Grant applications were received on January 27, reviewed by a committee of volunteers and funding recommendations were presented to and approved by the Board of Directors on April 7, 2017

The Foundation's areas of interest are:

Educational/ Academic
Cultural/ Fine Arts
Health & Wellness
