GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Greenwich United Way has announced a one-to-one matching grant from the Tudor Foundation, a charitable giving arm of Tudor Investment Corporation.
If the the United Way raises $50,000 in new and increased gifts by Feb. 29, the foundation will match it. If successful, this $100,000 will help pay for strategically chosen programs and agencies to meet the rising human service needs of the Greenwich community.
"The Tudor Foundation is pleased to support the Greenwich United Way and its efforts to help those in need" said Mike Riccardi, board member of Tudor Foundation and co-president of Tudor Investment Corporation. "We ask the community to join us in giving to this essential organization."
This is the first challenge grant earned by the Greenwich United Way, which mobilizes the community in strategic efforts to identify and address critical human service needs.
"The Greenwich United Way is proud and honored to partner with the Tudor Foundation to address the many trending gaps where funding continues to fall short of meeting the needs of those in our town who need our help the most," said United Way Board Chair Karen Keegan. "We are extremely grateful for the inspiring leadership and unprecedented call to action demonstrated by the Tudor Foundation."
Greenwich United Way is the largest non-governmental fundraiser of human service programs in the community, investing in programs that help seniors age at home, give children quality preschool education, help those in crisis, assist people in achieving self-sufficiency and more.
Its achievements are made possible through community partnerships, which are built through identifying and documenting needs.
Donations can be made to Greenwich United Way online, in person or by mail. To find out more, visit its website or call 203-869-2221.
