The UJA-Federation of New York raised a “record $290 million”:http://www.ujafedny.org/site/apps/nl/content2.asp?c=ggLUI0OzGpF&b=1849975&ct=4191539 during the fiscal year that ended June 30, the group has announced.
Westchester, one of eight counties that make up the group, kicked in $15.8 million, a local record that beat last year’s figure by 13%. (Don’t forget that Manhattan is one of the counties.)
Wayne K. Goldstein of Mamaroneck, chair of the Westchester annual campaign, said the county’s contribution “clearly demonstrates the growing awareness among our families of how blessed we are, and the responsibility we have in bringing caring and compassion to the less fortunate among us.Ã¢â‚¬?
The UJA-Federation of NY spreads the wealth to support the work of 100 health, human-service, educational, and community agencies across Greater New York.
