The Greenwich United Way is moving from 1 Lafayette Court to 500 West Putnam Avenue, Suite 415 on Saturday, July 8.
“The new space will better allow us to continue our mission to meet the needs of the community through our Community Investment Fund and help us launch our new Direct Impact Programs,” said Greenwich United Way CEO, David Rabin, in an email to constituents, donors and volunteers.
The first business day at the new location will be Monday, July 10.
Allan Murphy of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented Greenwich United Way on the sale of the organization’s building, which sold in April.
He was also leasing agent for the new space at 500 West Putnam Ave.
“Greenwich United Way asked us to find them a central location in Greenwich that would provide staff and agencies, donors and board members a more practical office space,” Murphy said. “We were provided a budget and narrowed down a few options based on that criteria.”
The Community Planning Council, Reading Champions, Greenwich Jr United Way and Community Answers programs will move with Greenwich United Way staff and continue to be housed together at this new address.

The Greenwich United Way shares a name with approximately 1,400 other similar organizations across the nation, although the Greenwich division is a privately incorporated, locally governed, nonprofit agency.
As a volunteer driven organization, the Greenwich United Way exists to help identify and address the human service needs specific to its local community and to create and affect meaningful solutions. Through various fundraising efforts, the organization is able to directly allocate the funds necessary to accomplish this goal. The Greenwich United Way also invests in and conducts collaborative efforts to address broad based community needs with partnering nonprofit agencies.
