Our 2023-24 Campaign Theme is “United in Action: Engage. Organize. Transform.” We believe in organizing resources and people for collective impact, working across all sectors to transform the economic insecurity that so many people are facing.   “I invite you to join the many volunteers, human service agencies, educational institutions, businesses, and community-based organizations, who are engaging to stand in the gap between current realities and our aspirations for economic sustainability. United Way is a wonderful vehicle for translating our values at the heart of our shared humanity into action,” UWTC President and CEO Michael Ramos.

'23-'24 Community Campaign Chairs

We are very excited to announce Alex Adelewitz and Cal Walker as co-chairs for this year’s Community Campaign.

Alex Adelewitz

"Co-chairing this year’s Community Campaign is a thrilling opportunity to help United Way of Tompkins County continue to meet the needs of many in our beloved community. I feel now more than ever that the mission of United Way to better the lives of people through education, health and financial stability aligns with our community's needs. It's an honor and a pleasure to work side by side with the dedicated folks at UWTC to act on the needs of our neighbors." 

Cal Walker

“I’m excited to co-chair this year‘s campaign because helping to ensure that core quality of life needs are met more efficiently and effectively for everyone in our community is very important to me. Funding support through United Way helps make that possible because our collective contributions are wisely and responsibly invested directly into programs and services that help people thrive. That helps ALL of us! Isn’t that what a caring community is really about?”

This dynamic duo brings a wealth of experience and dedication to UWTC's mission, promising to energize the campaign and rally the support of our local community. Adelewitz, Area Service Manager for Wegmans, has been an active and engaged member of the UWTC Board of Directors for three years; serving as a key player on the campaign and development committees. His enthusiasm for UWTC’s impact work makes him a most excellent ambassador for the organization. Walker, social entrepreneur, and beloved community advocate, extends his long-time engagement with UWTC; having most recently served as UWTC's Relationship Liaison and as Campaign Chair for the 2019-20 campaign, where he successfully led the efforts that raised $2 million. Walker's extensive community knowledge and commitment to improving the quality of life in Tompkins County make him a vital asset to the campaign.
