Welcome to The Springs Close Foundation. Built from the prosperity of the Springs Textile Mills and driven by Colonel Elliott White Springs’ legacy of giving back to those who helped his family prosper, our roots run deep in the communities we serve – Chester, Lancaster and York Counties.
The Springs Close Foundation currently is focusing its efforts and resources to provide critical basic support – food, shelter and medical assistance – to those in need. We will only consider grant applications from qualified nonprofit organizations that can effectively deliver these services. The Foundation also will continue its no-interest student loan program.
The Springs Close Foundation partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank and sent food home every Friday to children whom are at risk of hunger on the weekends when school meals are not available. A $10,000 grant from the Foundation will start the program for 100 students attending the district’s seven elementary schools.
Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen brought more than just a great concert to our community last fall. He also brought $50,000 to fight hunger — matched by another $50,000 from the Springs Close Foundation. The $100,000 gift went to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to support hunger relief efforts.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina hosted the annual Partner Appreciation Luncheon at Myers Park United Methodist Church on Thursday, January 22nd. Two organizations were recognized for their extraordinary philanthropic efforts over the years to help feed hungry children, seniors and working poor families in the Metrolina region.
