“I am excited to see the positive impact that UWBG is going to have on the Frankfort Community. By merging with UWBG, Frankfort is not losing a local presence but gaining the resource, commitment, and impact of a much larger vision and team. UWBG’s integrity, professionalism, and care for Frankfort comes second to none, there is no doubt that this is going to be a major win for the Frankfort Community.”  

- Allen Sweeney, Former President of United Way of Franklin County

“We approached United Way of the Bluegrass last year to discuss a potential merger as a way to enhance our ability to serve the Frankfort community.  Through the merger with United Way of the Bluegrass, local agencies and programs will continue to receive support and our community will see a renewed and increased presence from United Way. Every member of our UWFC board of directors will extend their service through the UWBG Franklin County board of trustees. This speaks to our collective support of this decision, and continued commitment to the Frankfort community.”

- Karen Wheeler, United Way of Franklin County President and Community Relations and Ops Support Coordinator at Beam Suntory
