Small Business Circle

It may be the best investment you make all year- for your business AND your community.

For a dollar a day, or $365 a year, your business becomes a member of the 365 Small Business Circle. United Way of Lancaster County has created an easy, affordable, and effective way for your company to give back to our community in a way that benefits your business too.

What is the 365 Small Business Circle (SBC) and Why would your business be involved?

With thousands of individual donors in Lancaster County, we are creating lasting change to improve lives in our community. When our community is strong, our workforce and small businesses benefit. Small businesses are often sent multiple requests to support a variety of important causes such as food security, education initiatives, and efforts helping people meet their basic needs. When you give to United Way of Lancaster County, your gift will support these efforts and more, allowing us to invest in initiatives and programs that create long-lasting, measurable and positive change in areas of Education, Financial Stability and Health.
