UNITED WAY INC Overview
The United Way Community Campaign, a joint effort of United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut and Community Health Charities of New England, is the largest annual health and human service fund-raising effort in Connecticut and the second largest in New England. The campaign supports a variety of nonprofit programs and initiatives to advance the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. We focus on the building blocks for a good life: education, income and health.
The United Way Community Campaign runs from early September to mid-November. The 2009 United Way Community Campaign raised $25,784,118, exceeding its goal of $25.5 million. More than 61,000 individuals across central and northeastern Connecticut participate in the Community Campaign, including employees at nearly 900 local workplaces.
