Empowering our local communities through Education, Financial Stability, and Health!

The United Way of Northern Chautauqua County has been around since the 1950s, when the Dunkirk-Fredonia Community Chest, Inc. was formed. Since that time, our mission has grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of our community.

Today, for the United Way of Northern Chautauqua County, local leadership working in partnership to impact our community with positive and sustained results is what matters.
