United Fund’s 2016 Campaign Underway with Goal of $452,000

Posted by on Oct 10, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments


Decatur County United Fund kicked off its 2016 campaign in September and is sharing the message of Building Community….One Life At a Time.

The organization will move forward on sharing a message of “why” it’s important to give. “The “why” is unique to each individual volunteer and donor, Executive Director Joane Cunningham shared.  According to Cunningham, when you give to Decatur County United Fund you support local programs that might connect you to your “why”.

“The purpose of Decatur County United Fund, in order to make a lasting change: our why, is to take those resources that people have trusted us with and make the decisions, the most efficient and effective decisions that are going to lead to that lasting change through local programs,” Cunningham stated.

The 2016 campaign goal is $452,000 and will benefit programs doing the best to make a difference in our area. The 2016 Campaign is currently at $65,790 or 14% of goal.

“The United fund focuses on education, income stability and health of every person in our community, and we’re able to do that because folks at home, folks here, folks all around our community choose to support us,” Cunningham noted.

The 2016 Campaign has a $50,000 matching opportunity for new gifts of $100 or more, any increase in giving for gifts of more than $100, and any corporate gift increase will be matched.   Two initiatives will benefit from the $50,000.  The Greensburg Ready Program, in partnership with Greensburg School Corporation, will help individuals improve their skills for employment with this workforce development program.  Also, a valuable children’s after-school program for working families in partnership with the Decatur County Family YMCA.

“When people trust us with their resources, when they trust us with their money, when they trust us with their time to help us make these decisions, that’s when we are going to see a community come together and be united and make those changes we all so desperately need,” Cunningham said.
