Board of Directors



Governed by a local, volunteer Board of Directors, United Way of York County, SC is locally operated and entirely independent of any other United Way organization. This allows our Board of Directors the freedom to create policies that are responsive to local needs and reflect the priorities and core values of the residents of York County. Our Board of Directors is comprised of a cross-section of community business and civic leaders who volunteer their time to provide governance for the organization. They serve three-year terms with new members elected annually.
