United Way of the EUP Surpasses 2016-2017 Campaign Goal at $301,641
United Way of the EUP is excited to announce that we have exceeded our Campaign Goal for 2016-2017 by raising $301,641.
“It’s been a truly transformational year for our organization,” said Suzanne Prell, Executive Director. “Wehave moved from a fundraiser to engaging the community in the work we do.”
Surpassing our 2016-17 campaign goal wouldn’t have been possible without support from our E.U.P. community, sponsors and dedicated volunteers. This support has made it possible to begin a new volunteer program, available this fall.
For several years United Way has been changing over to a community impact model. This model ties local funding to program outcomes in Health, Education, and Financial Stability. Annually, volunteers join our Citizen’s Review Panel to determine grant awards from the money raised in Chippewa, Mackinac, and Luce Counties. Program Outcomes are measured on their ability to improve community conditions.
