Winston-Salem, N.C. – October 6, 2020
Today officials from United Way of Forsyth County announced that the Staff Internal Campaign had raised $44, 277. This year’s campaign launched on September 16, 2020. The campaign had 100% participation from the UWFC staff and exceeded goal by 5%.
The funds will be added to annual campaign resources that support community-based organizations and partner agencies.
United Way of Forsyth County President and CEO Cindy Gordineer notes, “We are proud to have such a strong, passionate and generous staff who participate in an internal campaign every year. This year we know firsthand that resources are more critical than ever, and I am excited that not only did every staff member give but that we exceeded our goal.”
United Way of Forsyth County invests in over 60 programs and initiatives with more than 40 local partner nonprofit organizations focused on the key impact areas of Education, Economic Mobility, Health, and Basic Needs. Last year alone, United Way impacted over 100,000 local residents.
These 4 focus areas are part of the evolution to the Economic Mobility Road Map (EcRM), which addresses the overall question of why we invest in problem-solving to overcome roadblocks and barriers that prevent households from achieving economic self-sufficiency. UWFC is focused on solving community problems and investing in a community where no resident must worry about fulfilling their basic needs.
UNITED WAY OF FORSYTH COUNTY brings the community and its resources together to solve problems that no one organization can address alone.
