Live Local. Give Local.

Cayuga County is a great places to live in the Central New York Region. But that’s not true for everyone: many our neighbors cannot afford their basic needs. Together, we will create a community where all people thrive, regardless of income, race or place.

United in Action

We are in the business of positive change. 

The United Way of Cayuga County works with local companies, area governments, other nonprofits and numerous other organizations to collectively address and seek solutions to some of the area’s most complex challenges.

“I had a great experience with United Way from start to finish.”

At the beginning of a kindergarten readiness program, a mom stated that her son knew his numbers (1-
20) and was very good at math. After participating in the counting games, she realized he knew his
numbers but did not fully understand what they represented. The program showed her the importance
of playing this game and others like it at home. These activities will help her son tremendously in school.

By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

Salient is by far the most astonishing WP theme out there! I literally could not be happier that I chose to buy your theme! Your regular updates and superb attention to detail blows me away every time I visit my new site!

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!

We have all done lots of volunteering. I feel as long as I have good health I should keep helping others. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to chair the United Way with Gino, our 6 adult children, their spouses, and our 17 grandchildren.
