The United Way of McLean County is cutting most of its programs and its own administration by four percent. The agency fell nearly $338,000 shy of last year's annual fundraising result and is apportioning the shortage across the sixty plus human service programs it funds including the Community Healthcare Clinic, Countering Domestic Violence, A legal advocacy program and Center for Human Services. Education program cuts have yet to be determined. The new fiscal year for the United Way begins in July. New CEO David Taylor says they have opted to proceed with shared sacrifice. The $4 million that were raised, Taylor says, will allow agencies to positively affect the lives of thousands.
