United Way of Tompkins County

We were built for this!

A fundraising campaign for United Way of Tompkins County

THE UNITED WAY WAS BUILT FOR THIS! FOR NEARLY 100 YEARS, we have been bringing the community together to collectively solve our greatest challenges. Today we continue that work. We have extraordinary partners and systems in place that allow us to be nimble and effective in response to the impact COVID-19 is having on our community. We believe in self-determination, local solutions, and accountability. 100% of donations to UWTC are spent on programs and services. These are just some of the reasons our donors, our partners, and our community trust us. We invite you to join us.




Together, our community has already provided emergency relief throughout the first phase of this crisis. Together, we have made sure that 8,750 emergency meals were provided to seniors, that mobile food pantries were operational, that diapers and baby formula were accessible to the most vulnerable families, and that essential workers had child care assistance for their school aged children. And TOGETHER WE WILL DO EVEN MORE as we begin to move from emergency relief to social and economic recovery.

We invite you to make a gift today through this campaign knowing that every dollar will go towards either immediate needs RESPONSE or, as people are able to get back to work, RECOVERY. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded people all over the world how interconnected we really are. Each individual, family, business and institution is significantly and continuously affected by the actions of others. WE NEED EACH OTHER. United Way of Tompkins County recognizes that as our community begins the long road to recovery, addressing the health and economic fallout of this crisis, that no individual, company, or institution can do it alone. WE NEED EACH OTHER.

We are asking that those in our community who can share their resources to see others through this crisis do so by giving through United Way of Tompkins County. Your gift will ensure that your neighbors who are currently facing the worry, stress, and uncertainty of financial instability can access agencies and programs that can provide them with the support and resources that they need. Thank You!

Thank you for visiting our campaign page and supporting your neighbors through United Way of Tompkins County.
