United in Action

We are in the business of positive change. 

The United Way of Cayuga County works with local companies, area governments, other nonprofits and numerous other organizations to collectively address and seek solutions to some of the area’s most complex challenges.

Our corporate partners contribute much more than money. These partners connect us to the community and drive enthusiasm and knowledge for our work. Their ideas, volunteer power, in-kind support and more are helping build stronger communities.

“Everyone here at Cayuga Lake National Bank truly enjoys being a part of the United Way and contributing to the community. We have all seen the impact that the United Way organization has had with family, neighbors, and friends and we look forward to continuing that partnership with the United Way.”
