Donna Urian Receives Distinguished Service Award from YMCA of Greater Brandywine

Fischer Cunnane Shareholder and Director of Taxation Donna Urian was honored recently at the 2024 YMCA of Greater Brandywine (YGBW) Breakfast of Champions. She was presented with the Distinguished Service Award, which recognizes the effort and achievement of a dedicated YMCA volunteer who demonstrates the value of service for all members of the community and sets a standard of leadership that others may follow.

“I became involved with the YMCA as a volunteer after being impressed with the passion they had for water safety for children,” said Donna. “I was invited to serve on the finance committee in 2013, and subsequently asked to serve on the board.”

Donna served as the YGBW Board Chair from 2022 through 2023 and currently serves as Chair of the Nominating and Governance Committee. In 2023, she led the executive search to hire current President and CEO Bertram L. Lawson II.

“Donna has been a tremendous asset to the YMCA of Greater Brandywine,” said Bertram. “She has devoted countless hours to helping our organization grow and advance. Our association is stronger thanks to Donna’s leadership and service—as is our community.”

According to Donna, “It’s the mission and people that keep me coming back to serve. From the YGBW members and staff to my fellow board members, I feel blessed to be included in a group of talented people with diverse viewpoints. I can’t put a price on the value of my volunteer experience.”
