Why choose United Way of Lancaster County?
UNITED WAY MOVES BELOW THE SURFACE OF COMMUNITY PROBLEMS, GETTING TO THE UNDERLYING CAUSES.
We go beyond short-term fixes. We address the root causes of Lancaster County’s most pressing community issues and work towards long-term solutions to improve lives in Lancaster County.
UNITED WAY FOCUSES ON COMMUNITY IMPACT, NOT JUST FUNDRAISING RESULTS.
UNITED WAY COLLABORATES WITH HUMAN SERVICE AGENCIES AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS TO MEASURABLY IMPROVE LIVES.
We boldly tackle Lancaster County’s most pressing issues. We are the catalyst for community change, focusing on root causes of poor community conditions, preventing problems before they start and encouraging self-sufficiency, collaboration, and communication.
We bring the community together – United Way investors and volunteers, nonprofits, companies, faith-based groups, and government to make change happen that no single organization or individual could accomplish alone – to identify community problems and create solutions. We strive to create collaborative relationships that deliver life-transforming services without duplication or gaps.
UNITED WAY ACHIEVES RESULTS.
We set goals before we invest donors’ gifts. We monitor the progress of our funded programs and we work with our nonprofit partners to achieve results.
UNITED WAY IS EFFICIENT AND ACCOUNTABLE.
We hold ourselves accountable for positive results. Funding investments are made by local volunteers who are selected because of their diverse experience and expertise. Programs supported by United Way are reviewed for effectiveness and efficiency.
