Our History 

The Livingston County United Way was officially incorporated as a United Way on February 4, 1977. Prior to that time, beginning in the early 1950s, each of the county’s six communities had its own Community Chest all doing their own individual fundraising, administration and allocation processes. As the county’s population grew, it was determined that a county-wide structure would better serve local residents’ needs.
