Member News: 6 United Way Organizations Merge to Become United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes

United Way of Ontario County has merged with 5 other United Ways to become the United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes

United Way of Ontario County has successfully merged into the United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes, combining 6 United Way organizations, and will now serve the counties of Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Wayne, and Wyoming.

All current team members across the six counties remain with the organization, bringing a breadth of hands-on experience, in-depth understanding, and increased peoplepower to the expanded footprint.

The six United Ways organizations have worked together for decades, with Monroe County providing back-office services including financial, IT, marketing, and human resources functions for all. The new structure, proven during the organization’s spring 2021 campaign season, streamlines the organization’s front-end processes. Its success helped United Way rebound to pre-pandemic levels of funding for its human services partners.
