  1. We support 20 local agencies and programs that help Westfielders in need. Click to see the list.

  2. We provide an economical, efficient approach to community fundraising, because we combine the efforts of 19 member agencies into one larger drive. ( We also fund our own program, After School Tutoring. ) This frees agency personnel to devote their time to agency programs, encourages high standards of agency services, and meets the most serious community needs first. Because the Westfield United Fund is run almost entirely by volunteers, we are able to maintain very low administrative costs. Click to see our 2016 allocations.
