GREENWICH, CONN. -- The Greenwich United Way has received a one-to-one matching grant from the Tudor Foundation, a charitable giving arm of Tudor Investment Corp.
The grant will require the United Way to raise $50,000 in new and increased gifts by Feb. 29.
If successful, the grant challenge will raise $100,000 to fund programs and agencies meeting human service needs in the 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, said Karen Keegan, chair of the United Way's board of directors.
Programs and services in the Greenwich community which the United Way supports include: Kids in Crisis, the YWCA’s Domestic Abuse Service, Commission on Aging, Transportation Association of Greenwich, Greenwich Youth Service Coordinator, Children’s Day School Childcare Centers in Riverside and at the Western Greenwich Civic Center, and the Reading Champions program, which assists more than 400 children each week with reading comprehension and efficiency.
