PLEASE NOTE – For the upcoming calendar year United Way is removing restrictions around the fundraising Blackout period which is usually in place. The past year has been a very hard year on all non-profit organizations due to COVID-19 and the restrictions that are in place. Therefore, United Way has decided to remove the black-out restrictions for the 2022-2023 funding year.
