Over 55,000 Donors Step Up to Deliver Successful Campaign for 80+ Agencies
Charlotte, N.C., Feb. 21, 2014 – For the third year in a row, donors enabled United Way of Central Carolinas to beat its campaign goal – this time by a six-figure margin. United Way unveiled today an impressive total of $21,544,686 raised, surpassing its $21,438,000 goal by $106,686.
The news was announced at a ceremony at United Way's uptown headquarters, with children from The Learning Collaborative and seniors from the YMCA unveiling the final figure, surrounded by United Way's board of directors, staff and representatives from the 83 local agencies funded by United Way donations.
"This is a phenomenal result by the community, for the community," said Ed O'Keefe of Bank of America, United Way's 2013 campaign chair. "So often in the past we've needed major corporations to step in at the final hour with a stop-gap check, on top of what they already gave. This year, the extraordinary generosity of all donors is going to help us serve even more of our neighbors in need."
Also speaking at the ceremony was Brenda Caulk, who was helped by four United Way agencies and was one of the faces of the fundraising campaign. She shared how grateful she and more than 300,000 other local beneficiaries are for the community's ongoing support of United Way.
