United Way of the Bluegrass in central Kentucky is responding to a drop in donations by decreasing funding to some organizations it supports.
The United Way chapter finished 2011 with revenue of $5.3 million and 2012 with $4.9 million.
Farmer attributes the revenue decrease to a "soft economy" and competition for charitable giving.
He says most of the 80 central Kentucky agencies that receive United Way funding saw a decrease in funding, some of up to $50,000.
The organizations were notified recently of their funding levels for the coming fiscal year.
