Who We Are

 

We are local!

All agencies supported by United Way of Lancaster County provide services to people who live and work in our community.
 
98% of your contribution stays in Lancaster County.
Helping people here in our community.
 
88% of your contribution is directed to programs
These programs touch you, your family and your co-workers.    
 

We are independent of all other United Ways, "locally owned and operated!".

One of our main strengths is that our Board of Directors is a local board consisting of people from a diverse industrial, occupational and demographic base who all have a vested interest in making Lancaster County a better place for all of us to live.   Funding received during the campaign is allocated by a volunteer allocations committee.  This means they study funding requests to determine where dollars are needed and can do the most good for our community.
