The Polar Bear Foundation

The Polar Bear Foundation was founded in 2007 to secure monetary gifts to supplement funds for student activities and programs and initiatives that are outside of the regular operating budget.

The Polar Bear Foundation (PBF) is registered with the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational foundation.  We provide financial support to K-12 students and staff in the Northern York County School District, a public school serving residents of the greater Dillsburg area.

The PBF is able to help make good things happen for our schools and students by organizing special events and through the generous donations of individuals, groups, and corporations.
