At United Way, we invest in programs that will make an impact and change the lives of those living in Colchester County.
Our funded programs are selected once a year through an application process. Before making recommendations to our Board of Directors for approval, the Community Investment Committee reviews all applications from eligible agencies to ensure that each funded program relates to one or more of our three focus areas and will truly make a difference in Colchester county.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, individuals including children, youth, and families received support from our community partners and United Way programs. Donations helped move people out of poverty, meet basic human needs, and improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable in Colchester.
