United Way campaign falls just short of goal, but will maintain last year’s funding levels

NORWICH – The Chenango United Way raised $423,032 during its 2009 campaign, 91 percent of its $465,000 goal, Executive Director Elizabeth Monaco announced Thursday.

“The downturn in the economy has amplified the need within our community while having the unfortunate effect of decreasing total United Way donations this year,” said Monaco. “Although the campaign came in lower than our goal, the Chenango United Way Board of Directors is pleased to announce that they have maintained the total allocable funds for 2010 at 2009 levels.”

Supplementing the campaign with a one-time release of reserve funds will allow the board to maintain this level of funding to assist the United Way’s Community Partner Programs, reported Monaco.
