Tri-County United Way’s Community Investment Increases 23% For Fiscal Year 2024

GLENS FALLS, NEW YORK – The Tri-County United Way has announced the final community investment strategy for its 2024 fiscal year. Due to the remarkable achievements and generosity of its annual campaigns and the community, Tri-County United Way’s allocations fund experienced a significant 23% increase in support for partner agencies throughout Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties.

Tri-County United Way’s Allocation Committee includes local community leaders who reside and work within the communities Tri-County United Way supports. After weeks of thorough review, including on-site 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 of Tri-County United Way) 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 Kristin Chlopecki, Executive Director. “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 Rebecca Wood, Board Chairperson of Tri-County United Way. “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% 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 expresses gratitude to the local agencies, businesses and donors of Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties, acknowledging their donations and highlighting their significant role in creating a better living environment for everyone. Tri-County United Way 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. This increase in allocation funds signifies a momentous milestone for Tri-County United Way as the organization celebrates its 100-year anniversary.
