United Way of York County is pleased to announce the Campaign Chair for the 2019 Annual Campaign, one of the most significant fundraising events for York County: Elizabeth Dellinger, Director of Treasury Management at York Traditions Bank.
In her role, Ms. Dellinger will lead the Campaign Cabinet, a group of dedicated community leaders that devote their time and energy to building relationships with local companies and encourage them to lead the way and give back through a United Way campaign. With the community’s support, United Way of York County aims to raise $6,425,000 through the Campaign.
Ms. Dellinger is extremely active in the community as the past President of YWCA York and Chairperson of SpiriTrust Lutheran Foundation Board.

In addition, Ms. Dellinger has offered her leadership to the boards of many other organizations, including Leadership York, Lutheran Social Services, Penn Laurel Girl Scout Council, The York County Chamber of Commerce, Main Street York, and the York Jaycees.
Ms. Dellinger brings nearly 30 years of banking experience, having joined York Traditions Bank 10 years ago. She works with area businesses of all sizes to develop, deliver, and provide support for treasury management products and services. She received numerous sales and customer service awards throughout her banking career, and has also been recognized for her community involvement and participation in professional development activities as well as her influence on women and young business leaders. These honors include the York County Economic Alliance Ignite Award and ATHENA Award, Leadership York’s distinguished Alumnus Award, and most recently, the Central Penn Business Journal’s Women of Influence Award.
Ms. Dellinger enjoys being active, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She resides in York with her 10-year-old daughter.
United Way of York County’s Campaign is the largest annual fundraising event in York County, with 1 in 3 in York County being directly impacted by United Way funded programs. Each year, more than 300 companies and organizations across York County pull together to give back, in order to build a stronger, caring community.
About United Way of York County
For over 98 years, United Way of York County has worked in the York County community to improve people’s lives. It began as The York Welfare Federation, an organization that raised funds on behalf of 17 member agencies. Today, as the United Way of York County, the mission of raising community funds remains the same, but the strategies have broadened in order to meet the growing and changing needs of people living in York County.
United Way has adapted over the years and now collaborates with other public and private organizations to engage the community in addressing the complex issues facing York County. By developing initiatives that get at the root causes of these issues, United Way and its partners find solutions and fund programs that improve the lives of one in three people in York County. Through gifts to the Community Fund, United Way is able to invest those dollars into 68 programs supported by 37 Partner Agencies. These programs address human services needs across three Focus Areas: Education, Health, and Financial Stability. This enables United Way to tackle the immediate and continuing needs of York County families and individuals and to create real, lasting change that matters to you and our community.
