United Way Community Update

We proudly announce and congratulate the 2024 graduating class of Leadership Chester County (LCC). This leadership development initiative nurtures and empowers emerging leaders, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to make a positive impact in their communities.

For over two decades, LCC has been instrumental in bringing business insight to the boardrooms of nonprofits across the region. Administered and facilitated by United Way of Chester County, in partnership with West Chester University and Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry, the program has produced 560 graduates over its 23-year history. Additionally, 146 sponsors and 435 nonprofits have benefited from LCC graduates serving on their boards or as staff.

As we honor the 2024 graduates, we are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2025 class of Leadership Chester County. To apply or learn more about the application process, click here, or contact Kelly Cockshaw, Director of Leadership & Innovation, at 610.429.9400 x4107.

In partnership with Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania, we are offering assistance to mobile home owners in Chester County to file for property tax reassessment appeals. Thanks to generous donors, the fees are 100% paid for on behalf of the homeowners in the program.

Since 2019, we assisted in 1,014 successful appeals and saved each mobile home owner an average of $800 on their annual taxes.
