Board of Directors Spotlight: Lisa Kennedy

Board of Directors Spotlight: Lisa Kennedy

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. We invite you to learn more about the amazing work of these individuals.

Today, we’d like you to meet Lisa Kennedy.

Lisa was born in Manhattan,  New York, and moved to York County as a child.  She grew up in Manchester and attend Northeastern Senior High School. We asked Lisa what she loves most about York and why volunteering is important to her. Here is what she shared with us.

“I love the rich diversity [in York] which allows for meaningful experiences.  I also appreciate the hidden gems – the little special places you can take your family for fun times.”

Lisa serves on several boards and committees in York County. In addition to serving as chair on YCCF’s Racial Equity Fund Committee and DEI committee, Lisa also serves on the board of West York Trinity Youth Center, York County Children Youth and Family’s Advisory Board, Hope Street Learning Lab, as a School Board Member for the School District of the City of York, and as Vice President of the York County Federation of Democratic Women.

“I’ve been inspired to serve the community as a result of the dedication and work of my Father. He was the best example of giving unto others.  My volunteerism provides the opportunity to pour into others as was done with me. Following my God-given purpose and being the change I want to see, fuels me everyday.

To me, philanthropy means learning that living life is not only about YOU, but it is about being selfless and about extending the blessings to others.”

In her free time, Lisa loves spending time with her 5 grandchildren, traveling, and pursuing her love of cake decorating.
