The Legacy of Giving Back

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. 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 basic critical needs of food, shelter, and emergency medical assistance as well as early childhood education opportunities (birth to 5 years old). The Foundation also offers a no-interest student loan program for students who are residents of Lancaster and Chester counties and the Fort Mill township.

Serving Our Community

Grants

The Foundation follows a philosophy that resources are here to assist community groups and agencies with programs and projects that will contribute the most to improving the quality of life for the people in its service area.

STUDENT LOANS

Colonel Springs understood that a good education is critical for improving quality of life. In fact, he believed this so strongly that he began giving interest-free student loans out of his own pocket in 1942 when the Springs Foundation was created.
