How much of my contribution stays in Ulster County?

100%.  United Way pays dues to state and national associations (1% of income) but these are paid for by corporate, not individual donations.

Does my $1/week donation really make a difference?
With 77% of United Way donations coming from individual donors , every individual gift makes a tremendous difference.  If everyone in Ulster County gave $1/week, we would raise over $5.7 Million!
