Nevada County employee recognized for charitable work

Daniel Chatigny, the chief fiscal administrative officer for the Nevada County Community Development Agency, was recognized in the Friday Memo issued by CEO Rick Haffey for his charitable work.

For the last two years, Chatigny has volunteered his time to serve on the board for United Way of Nevada County.

The mission of United Way is to improve lives by directing community resources to community needs. Chatigny enjoys working with United Way because of the variety of organizations it supports, Haffey wrote.

Local nonprofits receive over $100,000 from local United Way donations. Instead of focusing on one service, United Way supports a diverse group of nonprofit organizations and their clients.

As United Way’s treasurer, Chatigny helps the board plan fundraising events, participates in fundraising activities and helps direct where the funding will go each year. United Way organizes fundraising events that are unique and fun.
