Support continues for the Port Allegany Campaign for United Way, with officials announcing that nearly 50 percent of the $15,000 goal has been raised since solicitation efforts began in August.
In the second year for efforts managed by the United Way of the Bradford Area, Executive Director Mandi Wilton Davis says a driving force up to this point in the new donors.
“We are considering ‘new donors’ to be those who did not give to the 2016 appeal, but have this year,” says Davis. “Currently, there have been 12 new donors who have contributed $1,145, which is a significant amount!
“We’re reminded of how generous the donors in Port Allegany are, and how strongly they feel of the programs and services supported by their commitments to this campaign,” said Davis.
Fundraising will continue until January 5, 2018. The application for funding will be available to eligible non-profit organizations beginning February 1, with the submission deadline being March 1 and the allocation of funds scheduled for April 1.
Davis said she and the Board of Directors are looking forward to not only meeting, but once again surpassing that $15,000 goal this year. Anyone interested in supporting the Port Allegany Campaign for United Way can mail their contribution to PO Box 504 (Bradford); call 814-368-6181; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
