CT Attorney General Jepsen Says Donor Intent Was Honored

Here's a statement from the United Way of Western Connecticut regarding the detailed report about the Sandy Hook School Support Fund:

We are pleased that Attorney General Jepsen's detailed examination of donor intent of the funds contributed to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, once again, validates that the United Way of Western Connecticut (UWWC) consistently honored the intent of donors.

We are hopeful that Attorney General Jepsen's findings regarding UWWC's honoring of donor intent will also satisfy the interests of Senators Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy and others who may have had questions regarding this issue.

We now consider this issue to be resolved. Without further delay, it is time for the Sandy Hook Community Foundation to proceed with their work of determining how best to allocate the remainder of the donated funds to help heal the Newtown community.
