CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango United Way (CUW) released its community impact awards this month, showing a detailed picture of how the money raised during the 2006 campaign will be used in the community.
“For 2007, campaign funds were awarded to programs in Chenango County that demonstrated the highest ability to deliver measurable results and outcomes in each of the four focus areas identified in the 2005 needs assessment,” the 2007 Community Impact Statement reads. This year, the CUW raised $414,560 in Chenango County. The organization received an additional $49,000 that was designated from other United Ways, for a total of $463,945, which was still $70,000 less than the amount raised locally last year.
“This year, we had 36 programs apply for funding, and their requests totaled $668,000,” said CUW Executive Director Elizabeth Monaco. “That’s quite a bit more money than was raised in the fall campaign.”
