Dear Neighbors,

This was an exciting year for the Community Chest as we welcomed Jennifer Ubaldino, our new Executive Director. We look forward to working with her in fulfilling our mission. Jennifer brings a wealth of experience in non-profit organization and has put together a great team with Laura Eriksson, Associate Director, Heather Swartwood, Development Assistant, and Libby Kurten, Bookkeeper. The coming year will be their first full one together and we are very excited to see them in action.

We are fortunate to live in a community that is committed to supporting the needs of so many. The 29 non-profit organizations that we are able to support this year touch many of us, preschoolers, teens, families and the elderly; our reach is broad. Through our allocations process, we are able to focus funds to where they will make the greatest impact. We are pleased to report we have again raised and distributed more than half a million dollars to help our neighbors in need through these initiatives. We are very grateful we could award $510,000 to 29 local agencies and programs.

In addition to the support we were able to allocate to local organizations, the Community Chest also met critical needs within our community through special funds such as the Community Impact Fund, the Cornerstone Fund, the When In Need Fund, and the Scholarship Fund, which provided another $20,864 in support for innovation, emergencies, and our future.

As always, we’d like to express our deep appreciation to you, our donors, supporters, sponsors, and volunteers. You help lift up our entire community, making it a stronger, healthier and happier place to live and work.
