The Greenwich United Way has announced tentative plans to relocate their offices to a new location.

According to a statement released on Tuesday morning, the current office building at 1 Lafayette Court is expected to be offered for sale after Labor Day.

“Our building was a gift to the Community Chest and Council by Gen. Arthur H. Carter,” Greenwich United Way CEO David Rabin said in the release. “In 1975 the Community Chest became Greenwich United Way and has developed into the leading provider of human service needs information and funding in the Town of Greenwich, having allocated over $20 million in the last ten years alone.”

Rabin said that if the move takes place, a new, more functional space would be ideal for staff and volunteers. “A change would give our organization the opportunity to enhance both income and mission outreach, in addition to returning a valuable property to the tax rolls,” he continued.

Though the central Greenwich location has been convenient, United Way Board Chair, Karen Keegan said that a relocation to a new space would better accommodate modern technology and infrastructure.

Newmark (NGKF Capital Markets) will represent Greenwich United Way in the potential sale of the property.
