2016-17 United Way Annual Report

From the Chairman of the Board

Dear United Way Supporters,

As I took on the responsibility of Board Chair, United Way of Allen County had many reasons to celebrate. We experienced growth in fundraising, had seen an increase in revenue generation, and had established a volunteer program that was mobilizing our champions like never before. However, there was more work to be done to ensure that United Way remains a leader in driving attention to issues facing our community.

With renewed vision and purpose, the staff developed systems and processes to bring about action and change. We recognize that change can be hard, but as you will see from this report the work is being done. United Way of Allen County is uniting the community to break down barriers—connecting difference-makers with what they need and those who need them. There is more work to be done, more conversations and collaborations to be had, and more strategic plan execution in the future, but there is also a commitment to healthier families and neighborhoods in our community.

From the President and CEO

Dear United Way Champions,

This year we embraced the theme of, “United we fight. United we win.” While fighting is not something I generally promote in the office, it was necessary for the team to roll up their sleeves and work in new ways, fighting for the betterment of Allen County.

United Way has learned from many of you through our community conversations and we are making changes that will make sure we are leveraging our resources and breaking down the community barriers that are keeping us from safe, healthy neighborhoods. Some tough but necessary decisions were made this year to ensure that as an organization we are more nancially stable and better prepared to move the needle on community issues.

While we have celebrated major wins, like growth in our fundraising efforts, record-breaking attendance at Day of Caring, and new partnerships there is more work to be done. Our task is not complete, but we are poised and ready like never before.

United Way cannot complete the task alone. We are counting on the partnership of every person across the community in resourcing life-changing solutions for individuals and families that live in Allen County. United we fight. United we win.

David M. Nicole
President and CEO
United Way of Allen County
United We Fight. United We Win.

The individuals who serve on the United Way of Allen County board and committees are members of our community. They believe in fighting for a stronger, healthier neighborhoods. They offer expert advice believing that when we work United we win.

Thank you for your service. We are proud to call you friends, supporters, advocates, volunteers, and champions.
