United Way of Cattaraugus County

Your gift protects and nourishes the backbone of Cattaraugus County.

The more than 18 local organizations supported by the United Way represent the backbone of our social and community service systems. All gifts to your United Way stay in Cattaraugus County and serve to strengthen the programs that turn community challenges into opportunities.

When tragedy strikes, your gift to the United Way helps people you know,
every day.

Every day, we see examples of the fragility of life and how quickly a life can be turned upside down. House fires, illness, a sudden job loss - no one is truly ready for tragedy, and no one is immune to it. Thankfully, United Way has been here as the helping hand that enables our community's service organizations to respond to life's curve balls. Perhaps someone close to you has benefited from the support of a United Way organization. In a small community like ours, all of our neighbors are close to us and, therefore, the impact of your giving is truly personal.

Help Now

You can trust that your gift to the United Way will be used wisely.

We are vigilant in the administration of gifts entrusted to us. Prudent and wise management and distribution of funds are top priorities of our highly engaged Board of Directors and staff.

Your gift to the United Way reduces duplication of fund raising effort and expense.

While many of the organizations funded by the United Way also operate their own fund raising programs, none of them has the fund raising staff or resources necessary to raise all of the funds they need to operate. Your gift to the United Way helps to relieve our organizations of the administrative demands and expenses of fund raising, leaving them to focus on their mission.

Give Now

We can't do it without you.

Our 2013-14 United Way Campaign goal is $400,000. To achieve this goal, which is directly related to the real needs of our United Way organizations, we are seeking your support.

To improve the quality of life by mobilizing resources to meet the needs of our communities.
