United Way of Albany County donors have always had the option of online giving, but not always a lot of choice in how to give. Now that’s changed! Donors can now designate their gifts to go to one or more specific agencies, and also still have the option of giving to our general community fund. Also new is the option for donors to set up recurring donations. Click here to check it out: Donate to the United Way of Albany County. We hope these new options make online giving easier! Thank you, as always, to all of our generous donors, whatever your giving format!
Tax season is now over. Our VITA tax program e-filed 672 current year federal returns, 59 state returns, and an additional 40 past year returns. We have also helped people file an additional 30 paper returns and completed 25 amended returns. Total federal refunds are $832,478 and state refunds are $12,611. Using an average of $100-$150 a return, I estimate we saved tax program clients about $125,000 in tax preparation fees.
ServiceSpark tracked more than 750 hours of highly-skilled volunteer time from our dedicated community volunteers.

We are really, really, really happy to announce that we have met and surpassed our goal of $430,000.
This has been a true team effort involving:
- Our great campaign co-chairs Even and Anne Brande. They have been our greatest cheerleaders.
- Our board members who give so generously of their time and their pocketbooks.
- Our campaign volunteers who help us with planning presentations, stuffing envelopes, and so much more.
- Our member agencies and especially their executive directors who all ran employee campaigns and helped us make over 80 employee presentations across Laramie,
- And all our fabulous donors – over 1000 – who helped us raise a record amount of money that will make Laramie a much, much better place to live.
Thanks to you all!
The schedule for the 2015 VITA tax program has been posted on our Event Calendar.
