6/25/10: The GEYFCS relies on a unique mix of local funding partners to remain operational. Due to historic economic pressures and a difficult fundraising environment, the GEYFCS recently received notice from the United Way severing our fifteen-year funding partnership effective July 1, 2010. As a consequence of this action one of the central pillars of our funding structure has been removed. The United Way has been clear in stating “do not take this decline as a reflection of the good work of your program, or your approach to the application process.” The United Way was forced to severe ties with 31 groups. There was a total of $3,000,000.00 of denied or reduced funding across all groups.
