Governance

The United Way of Western Connecticut is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of members from each community (Southern Litchfield County, Northern Fairfield County, and Stamford) that provide expertise and perspective on a regional level.  Three Community Councils, representing each of the locales, focus on local priorities, identifying community needs and allocating resources to local human service programs.
