United Way Celebrates Community Raising $5,535,000
Thank you to the hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals who came together to raise funds that will help our neighbors meet basic needs and build an even better life for themselves and their families. Our Awards Celebration honored the outstanding achievements and the amazing community members who raised $5,535,000 during a global pandemic. Although down 4.96% ($289,000), United Way is proud of the effort and result during this global pandemic year.
Special thanks to Lynda Weatherman, Economic Development Commission our 2020 United Way Campaign Chair for leadership during this tremendously difficult campaign.
Run a United Way Campaign in 2021
In the wake of COVID-19, we understand that employers and employees are concerned about our community, and our team is here to provide charitable giving support during this pandemic. With social distancing and working remotely, a United Way workplace campaign may look very different this year. We are here to help you plan and execute the type of fundraising campaign that makes the most sense for your organization, and we are so grateful for your support of local families in need during this difficult time.
Now more than ever, we need your support. Over the last year, the demand for critical services has doubled and caused many who have never had to ask for help before to suddenly need it. COVID has also negatively impacted our network of local partner agencies. While United Way funding is part of their overall budgets, other fundraising events and galas have been canceled causing nonprofits to be squeezed from both sides.
United, we can continue our work to ensure kids succeed in school, support our veterans, seniors, people with disabilities AND ensure individuals and families have the best chance to build a successful life. With the help of our 43 partner agencies and the many local organizations who support us, we can answer the pleas of those panicked by job loss, childcare challenges, lack of food and fear of homelessness.
If you have never run a United Way workplace campaign and would like to support our community, call us at 321.631.2740!
Thanks to 12,370 Donors both individual givers and those from 139 workplaces in Brevard who came together to raise $5,535,000 for our community.
