As we come to the latter part of the year, we will once again ask our employees to support the local community through the United Way campaign. VIP employees can participate in the annual campaign by having their donation deducted directly from their paychecks, a one-time gift or credit card. The United Way of CNY benefits a multitude of local organizations and nonprofits, a network of agencies, that work together to address the community’s most pressing needs. For the next three years, 33 partner agencies providing 88 local programs focusing on Basic Needs, Education and Health will receive funding. In addition to this, UWCNY is involved in additional initiatives that target poverty.
United Way of CNY is organized around a set of guiding organizational principles: a core mission that defines their role in the community, a vision that inspires their efforts, and strategies that shape their work. Their mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community.
