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. We will still be allocated $1,052,000 for our programs in 2019. All allocations are posted on United Way’s website. We are grateful for United Ways continued support of our programs and will continue to do amazing work with their investment.
