Your support of United Way’s Community Impact Fund enables us to run to community challenges like COVID-19 and racial injustice while strengthening the foundational building blocks that make a community strong. And this year your new or increased donation to the Community Impact Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar up to $450,000, thanks to the Stronger Together Challenge funded by LeChase Construction, M&T Bank, Five Star Bank, ESL Federal Credit Union, and O’Connell Electric.
