little-girl-live-unitedFor more than nine decades, United Way has enabled Cayuga County residents to make a difference in our hometown. United Way-funded programs serve about 48,000 people — nearly 57 percent of Cayuga County residents. It’s a very real and tangible impact over a broad range of services and programs – programs that touch the lives of people at every age, in every demographic.

All funding decisions are made by volunteers from our community – volunteers who take the time to identify the community’s needs, visit the agencies that work to meet those needs, and then ensure your gifts are put to the best use. The money raised in our community stays here, and United Way provides a fundraising vehicle that’s more efficient and effective for each agency, and United Way dollars can be leveraged to generate even more funding.
