The Tri-County United Way announced that its allocations fund to support for partner agencies throughout Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga counties experienced a significant 23 percent increase this year
Tri-County United Way’s Allocation Committee will use those funds to help support agencies in 2024.
The committee includes local community leaders who reside and work within the communities Tri-County United Way supports.
After weeks of thorough review, including onsite interviews and program presentations, these individuals determine how funds raised by the organization are allocated to local partner agencies.
Kristin Chlopecki, executive director of Tri-County United Way, and Rebecca Wood board chairperson, emphasized the importance of these allocations in ensuring the sustainability of the services provided by these organizations.
“Tri-County United Way is dedicated to providing support to diverse community service organizations that offer a broad spectrum of assistance to individuals, families, and groups,” said Chlopecki. “In pursuit of our mission, we understand that a unified fundraising campaign is the most effective approach to generate funds for the agencies involved. We are excited to see a 23% increase in allocation funds, especially during our 100th year anniversary, that addresses the community’s most prominent needs.”
“It is incredibly rewarding to see our community come together through the Tri-County United Way Allocations Committee,” said Wood, Board. “Local business leaders have joined forces with our funded agencies to learn about the amazing work being done daily. The ability to fund each agency with over 20 percent more than last year is something we should all be very proud of in this financial climate. It is a true testament to this area and our people.”
Tri-County United Way expressed gratitude to the local agencies, businesses and donors, acknowledging their donations and highlighting their significant role in creating a better living environment for everyone.
The agency remains committed to providing support and funds year after year. The organization continues to work in partnership with the compassionate strength of local agencies and businesses to help promote greater welfare for all.
Officials said the increase in allocation funds signifies a milestone for Tri-County United Way as the organization celebrates its 100-year anniversary.
