Center experiences $263,000 cut in United Way Funding

December 20, 2018
 

We, along with all United Way funded programs, will receive a 20% cut in our allocation starting January 1, 2019.  For Brighton Center, that means we must deal with a $263,000 shortfall to start the New Year.  We did get an indication in mid-November that allocations would more than likely be reduced by 15-20%, but now the news is official.  Let’s not forget though, that we will still be allocated $1,052,000 for our programs in 2019.   All allocations were posted on United Way’s website.  We are grateful for that and will continue to do amazing work with their investment.
