The United Way of Tri-County is an organization that raises money and connects volunteers to opportunities, while trying to meet the needs of the communities it serves.
The United Way organization is connected to businesses, governments, spiritual organizations, schools and agencies within its service areas. It keeps all donations raised in a particular service area within that service area. Volunteers who live and work in the service area annually decide where funds are spent. Money is spent in the areas of education, health and basic needs.
The United Way of Tri-County is one of 1,340 independently operated United Way organizations in our country. The United Way of Tri-County was incorporated in 1997 through the merging of five United Way organizations: the United Way of Assabet Valley, United Way of Neponset Valley, the United Way of Metrowest, the Westborough United Way and the Clinton Community United Way.
Today, the United Way of Tri-County serves 34 communities in three counties, Norfolk, Middlesex and Worcester, including the community of Framingham. It has an office in Framingham on Park Street.
