Live United 365 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 LIVE UNITED 365 Small Business Circle (details on investment levels).  The United Way of York County has created an easy, affordable, and effective way for your company to give back to our local community in a way that benefits your business too. See our current members.

What is the 365 Small Business Circle (SBC)?

While United Way of York County has been bringing business, individuals, and organizations together to advance the common good for the last 28 years, a new initiative is starting in an effort to make philanthropy easier and more rewarding for small businesses in York County.

We are inviting small businesses to become SBC members and investors in United Way of York County in a variety of ways, detailed below.

Why would your business be involved?

With over 4,500 individual donors in York County, we are effecting long lasting changes to improve lives in York County. 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 York 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.
