Rising To The Challenge To Benefit United Fund Agencies

Big News! An incredibly generous, local family has offered the United Fund a challenge grant to help meet the Fund’s 2013-14 campaign goal of $400,000. The donor has agreed to match any donation received by June 30th dollar for dollar up to the entire shortfall of $45,000! The campaign has currently attracted $355,000, and with one month left to go in the 2013-14 campaign, this grant represents an enormous potential windfall to benefit United Fund partner agencies. In response to this great opportunity the campaign goal has been raised to $445,000.

The United Fund of Talbot County is a long-time leader in generating and distributing critically needed funds to a large number of local community organizations – agencies whose very existence depends on the Fund’s financial support to them. With a mission to serve as the preeminent philanthropic organization, the United Fund strives to maintain and improve the quality of life in Talbot County, with every dollar raised staying here at home to help local individuals and families.

Thanks to this challenge grant, the United Fund stands to realize added dollars during June to better fund the important services and programs its partner agencies deliver to those individuals and families in need. It is through the assistance of community minded individuals that United Fund agencies are able to serve over 24,000 clients in the community each year.
