A Diverse Fair Haven Community with Historic Homes and a Beautiful Waterfront
The United Way of Greater New Haven works with you and me to strengthen our neighborhood. The United Way is a local non-profit organization acting as our fiduciary so that our neighborhood association has minimal administrative expenses. The United Way focuses on improving lives and community conditions in education, income and health: the building blocks for a good life in Greater New Haven.
I am writing to ask you to join me and 3 of your neighbors who have already pledged to support our neighborhood clean ups, Easter and Halloween events for children, Art in the Park, Annual Chatham Square Festival and much more via the United Way. Please consider pledging in one of two ways:
2. Payroll deduction using the attached form. This is a great way to give generously over a year, with minimal impact on monthly household budgets. If you are a Yale employee, you may also set up payroll deduction online here.
(Instructions for the Yale site: once you enter your information, select “Find an Agency,” then “Expand your agency search.” Type in “Chatham” and a new option to “Provide agency information” will appear at the bottom of the page. Enter “UWGNH - Chatham Square Neighborhood Association” here and the United Way will take care of the rest.)
Note: 20% of donations help cover the administration costs of the United Way. Please consider this our collective contribution to the broader work of this great nonprofit.
As residents of Chatham Square Neighborhood, we all have a stake in making our community a better place to live. Supporting our neighborhood association is one of the easiest and smartest ways we can do this. If just 10 neighbors or local businesses pledge just $10 per month during 2013, we will raise $1000 to support activities that benefit all of us, right where we live. Every gift counts.
Thank you for considering this request and happy holidays!
