The United Way of York County has a rich history with over 100 years of service working to improve people’s lives in the community. Historically, this work was accomplished through funding 64 programs delivered through 34 partner agencies working on a variety of community issues. As funding streams have shifted in recent years, the United Way system nationally has been working to adapt and to transform in order to best achieve impact. In response to these developments, the United Way of York County has recently committed to a new strategic direction to transform its community impact to an issue-focused model, concentrating future efforts and fund allocation towards improving the lives of working households that struggle to cover basic living expenses.
At this exciting and pivotal time of transformation, the United Way of York County is searching for a relationship-focused, strategic leader who will serve as an inspirational and respected community leader and advocate strongly for the new single-issue focus of the organization. While intently working towards the goal of empowering 8,000 households in York County to achieve financial stability by 2033, the new President will also embrace the leadership opportunity presented by this role in the community and be a powerful voice for a collaborative approach to finding solutions to the various challenges facing York County.
The President will work closely with the Board of Directors to implement the new issue-focused strategic plan, including developing and executing supporting plans, collaborating with other funders and social service organizations in the community, and developing ongoing support for the work. They will bring transformational leadership to all areas of UWYC including operations, financial performance, talent, and culture. As a respected community influencer, the ideal candidate will expand funding streams, establish, and strengthen collaborative community relationships and elevate UWYC’s brand and reputation.
