Giving to the United Way of York County - The Community Fund

The Community Fund is the most efficient and effective way to make the greatest impact in our community.  When workplace employees, companies and individuals give to the Community Fund through the annual campaign, United Way is able to invest those donations into 72 programs supported by 36 Partner Agencies.  These programs address human services needs across three Focus Areas: Education, Income and Health.  The Special Response Fund allows for Partner Agencies to address new and emerging community needs.

Each year, volunteers work diligently to ensure that only programs that demonstrate a measurable impact in people's lives are trusted with United Way dollars.  The programs are thoroughly assessed to make certain that significant results and outcomes are achieved.  Your gift to the Community Fund allows these programs to exist in order to improve people’s lives – making the York County community stronger, safer and healthier.

Visit the Funded Programs page to view information about those programs funded for the 2013-2014 fiscal year in the areas of Education, Income and Health.
