Board Member Spotlight: Harold Myers

At YCCF, we know that our organization’s success is due in-part to our amazing Board of Directors. To show our appreciation, we’re highlighting them throughout the year and invite you to learn more about the work of these amazing individuals.

Today, we’d like you to meet, Harold Myers.

Harold is originally from Baltimore County (White Marsh) and came to Pennsylvania to attend York College in 1977.

“What I love about York is, once people get to know you, they treat you like family.  It is also a great place to raise a family.  I love the strategic location of York County.  Whether you want to go to the beach or the mountains they are both close.  Another benefit is the close proximity to several great cities within a four-hour radius.”

Harold currently serves as 1st Vice Chair of YCCF’s board and as chair of YCCF’s Governance & Nominating and DEI committees. He is also on the board of the United Way of York County and serves as Co-Chair of its DEI committee, vice president of the board of CONE (Creating Opportunities in Neighborhood Environments), board member of CAH (Creating Affordable Housing), served as Commissioner for the City of York Human Relations Commission, and is Past President & Founding Member of YCBGA – York County Black Golfers Association.

When asked what inspires his community work, Harold says he credits his parents. “They inspired me to serve. They were always heavily involved in the community, and I was raised to give back to help the less fortunate.  My volunteerism has allowed me to impact many lives in a positive manner and it gives me great pleasure knowing this.”

For Harold, “philanthropy means people pooling their resources to help others in need.  We are not all born to the same privileges and it’s important to provide access and opportunities to those less privileged.”

In his free time, Harold enjoys playing golf, youth sports, and reading.
