A Message from the 2018 Leadership Giving Council Chair

Suzanne McConkey, SPHR

Vice President, Human Resources

Glatfelter Insurance Group

United Way of York County's success for building a strong community depends on contributors who set high standards of giving. Through annual leadership gifts of $1,000 or more, First Capital Club members have a profound impact on the lives of others in the community. Leadership givers collectively help thousands of local individuals and families every year. 

Your generous support provides an opportunity for a child to succeed in the classroom, for an individual to acquire healthy financial habits, for a senior to live independently and for a family to start fresh in the aftermath of crisis. As a Leadership giver, you can be certain your gifts are invested where they will have the biggest impact.

We welcomed 164 new First Capital Club members in 2017 and an additional 296 returning Leadership givers increased their contribution over the previous year. Your generosity as Leadership givers equates to 49% of the $6,553,842 raised in 2017. Your benevolent leadership is an inspiration to others and a cornerstone of the annual campaign.

On behalf of the Leadership Giving Council, I thank you for standing with us as we work together to build a stronger, caring community.
