United Way funding down

Jackson County United Way fell nearly 17 percent short of its 2012 fundraising goal.

Giving for 2012 totaled $758,250.39, or 83.3 percent of the $910,000 goal, Executive Director Tonja Couch said.

Cuts in allocations to United Way’s 20 member agencies could result, Couch said. Those decisions will be made soon by the United Way’s board of directors when members convene Feb. 11, board president Joe Bradley of Brownstown said Friday.

“We have used United Way reserve funds that are saved for times like these to prevent cuts in the past, so that’s a possibility,” Bradley said. “We’ll just have to see.”

Steve Stanfield of Boys & Girls Club of Seymour remains hopeful, however, that additional giving will come into the United Way and that allocations to agencies won’t be cut.
