Meals on Wheels of Chemung County, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We receive funds each year from several sources including the United Way, State of New York funds, and grants from area foundations. However we still need to raise an additional $30,000 annually through donations from residents of Chemung County, and other fund raising activities. We need your support to continue the wonderful work that we do.
Meals on Wheels of Chemung County does not use any form of professional telemarketing and does not pay for anyone to raise funds for us. We have one annual fundraising event (A Night At The Races in March) and we send out newsletters and an annual appeal letter. The fees we pay for the fund raising event, and the postage and printing costs (approximately $700) for our mailings are the only expenses that are not directly related to running our Meals on Wheels program. We accomplish this with the wonderful help of RSVP volunteers who help collate, fold, label etc. That means almost 100% of all donated funds go directly to the operation of Meals on Wheels in Chemung County.
