GREENWICH — The Greenwich United Way awarded its first round of grants to local health, education and self-sufficiency programs across 20 partner agencies at its recent Community Investment Grant Recipient Reception. Greenwich United Way Community Investment Grants are awarded to local organizations based on submission of grant applications and a rigorous review process by dozens of community volunteers.

“Our Grants Reception is a great way for the community to learn how the Greenwich United Way’s Community Investment Process works and the impact their dollars have on the programs we fund at each agency in town,” said David Rabin, CEO of Greenwich United Way. “Each grantee shares stories of how the grants made by the Greenwich United Way impact their respective organizations. This is all made possible by the generosity of the people of Greenwich who believe in our mission and help us aid over 17,000 Greenwich residents.”
