Chenango United Way Facing Large Deficit

Chenango United Way/Facebook

The Chenango United Way fundraiser has entered the toughest part of this year’s campaign and is still facing a deficit.

Typically, most of their goal would have been met by now due to business employee campaigns, but this year, according to Elizabeth Monaco, Executive Director of Chenango United Way, they are facing a large deficit if the last three weeks of the campaign fail to fill the gap.

Monaco says a $70,000 gap would result in the lowest campaign in over twenty years. Twenty eight programs have requested funding next year totaling over $600,000. The funding gap would mean that United Way could only fund 40 – 50% of funding requests, resulting in drastic reductions or even closing of some programs.

One example of those programs in need of United Way funding is The Place. Executive Director, Rebecca Sands, says she will be pushing the importance of meeting the United Way goal over the last few weeks of the campaign.

All funds raised by Chenango United Way stay in Chenango County.
