What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Philanthropy Services

The Fund for York County focuses resources on our community’s most pressing issues. Our new focus seeks to provide funding opportunities for programs and collaboratives that transform lives and our community by helping people thrive by building economic mobility for low-income individuals.

Our initial focus areas are: Housing, Career Development, Transportation, Childcare, Financial Education

The Community Foundation invests in the community by making grants to nonprofit organizations that have the highest likelihood of impacting our strategic focus areas.

YCCF offers support for the academic success of York County students through a variety of scholarships in connection with PA EITC Credit Program.

In addition to the wide range of grants directed by our donors, major foundation initiatives provide grants in the areas of early childhood education, post-secondary scholarships, local environmental issues, and community building.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to transform lives and our community by helping people thrive by building economic mobility for low-income individuals through grants to programs and collaboratives.

• Support organizations and groups working in comprehensive ways to address the complex challenges that keep people financially insecure.
• Support & strengthen collaboratives working across sectors to remove barriers to financial security and achieve community-wide impact.
• Use YCCF’s Human Equity lens/DEI North Star to engage new & diverse community voices in our work, understand and address the barriers to accessing our resources, and build DEI competence of grantees.
• Raise awareness about the issues facing people with low incomes to leverage additional funding and action.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
