How to LIVE UNITED.


the united way. welcome

Live United.

While reflecting on 2010-2011, we are already heartened at the positive momentum we are achieving as we write this in early 2012. Looking back to the 2010-11 fiscal year reviewed by this annual report, we must reflect upon the challenges faced by United Way and our community. Just as it was for most business organizations, 2010-11 was a tough year for nonprofits, as well. United Way, although in a stronger fiscal position than most nonprofits, based on years of excellent performance, also was affected by the downturn in the economy. The result was a decline of approximately 20 percent in the annual workplace campaign. Recognizing that many of our nonprofit impact partner agencies were being hit with their own declining private fundraising results and deep cuts from state and federal funding sources, the United Way board made a decision to fund additional dollars from our reserves to lessen the impact that a smaller Community Investment fund for allocations would have on our partners and our community. In addition to funding out of reserves to support our impact partners, the United Way board also made a decision to increase our own development and communications efforts with

funding out of reserves. This decision was made based on significant feedback from our donors and community opinion leaders who told us we needed to increase our ability to fundraise and support important community initiatives in meeting our mission to serve. These two decisions were studied and deliberated for quite some time and unanimously supported by our board. The effect of those decisions will continue to have lasting positive impact for our community, even as this year they will be reflected negatively in our financial reports. Last year we saw the departure of long-time CEO Karen Bricklemyer, when she moved to take a position as CEO of another United Way. With Karen’s departure, our board conducted a national search and hired Debbie Mason as our new president and CEO. Debbie joined us having served as both a consultant and also as VP Resource Development and Impact for our United Way. Debbie was instrumental in the launch of the Community Visioning and Strategic Planning efforts that will lead to lasting positive change in our community through the engagement of hundreds of nonprofit, business, faith-based, government and individual community organizations.

We are optimistic about the future of our United Way and our ability to lead, convene, facilitate and serve our community of six counties. Our focus on increasing high school graduation rates, through funding strategies in targeting early childhood learning, continues through our Success By Six investments. Investments for long-term change remain at 70 percent of our total Community Investment fund. In addition, 30 percent of our funding remains directed to the immediate needs of residents, including infants through seniors, for food, shelter, etc. as we recognize the importance of this stabilizing pool of resources, particularly during these times of economic duress. We invite you to join us in our newly formed Affinity Groups, in the new Donor Dialogue series or other connections we’ve launched. The opportunities to LIVE UNITED continue to grow and we hope you’ll be a part of those efforts in this coming year. Thank you for your support of our United Way. We welcome your feedback. Sincerely,

Carolyn Lukert

United Way at work United Way of North Central Florida is focused on the building blocks that lead to a good quality of life – Education, Health and Income – because we all gain when children are successful in school, when families are financially stable and people are healthy. United Way NCFL devotes 70 percent of resources to long-term strategies and a large part of those efforts are focused on education. Our primary goal is to increase high school graduation rates, through investments in quality early childhood education and family strengthening programs (Success By 6). United Way of North Central Florida serves the six county area in four ways: • by funding results-driven programs, offered by Community Impact Partner Agencies and other organizations through the Community Investment Process; • by providing broad-reaching services (2-1-1, the 24-hour,

Live United. 2

free call for information and referral to help); • by developing grant-funded initiatives (including the Weekend Hunger Backpack Program, VITA and the Sealant & Smiles children’s dental program); and • by leveraging local money with federal grants to bring more dollars into our community. In addition, United Way is a natural leader and convener of broad community building, as with the Community Visioning and Strategic Planning process, where we bring hundreds of organizations and experts together to envision, plan and engage in the work of building a stronger community together. United Way of North Central Florida engages within our community to find long-term solutions for issues impacting all residents in the areas of Education, Income and Health (EIH). United Way NCFL is committed to collaborating with all segments of the com-

munity to build partnerships and help fill the needs in our community. It takes all of us working together to create a seamless tapestry of support to build a better and more resilient community. From collecting books and food, to organizing volunteer projects, the work of United Way can be seen throughout North Central Florida. Serving six counties, Alachua, Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy and Union, United Way NCFL mobilizes thousands of volunteer hours each year to take care of our neighbors. Working with the Alachua County public school system, United Way NCFL and the Women’s Leadership Council is committed to help cultivate proficient readers by the third grade. This commitment is essential when you realize that nearly half of local children enter eighth grade performing below grade level.

program success Grants Family Engagement for High School Success (FEHS) One-fourth of all ninth graders in the United States will not graduate from high school within four years. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive strategy to keep teens in school and ensure that they graduate prepared for the future, AT&T awarded United Way NCFL a grant as part of a new, national initiative – Family Engagement for High School Success (FEHS). United Way NCFL was one of 15 national pilot sites. Locally, UWNCFL used the grant to research relationships between at-risk youth, parents and school authorities, as well as to identify parenting challenges. Funding provided the Alachua County School Board to create a drop-out prevention specialist position. One of the national outcomes from the work through this grant was the release of the Family Engagement for High School Success Toolkit based on the work of United Way NCFL and the other pilot programs.

Annie E. Casey Foundation Grant 64 percent of all Florida fourth graders cannot read proficiently. The Annie E. Casey Foundation is fully invested in building better futures for millions of disadvantaged children in tough neighborhoods. The Casey Foundation uses a two-generation approach to change the future for large numbers of at-risk kids by finding ways to help their parents succeed in the present. We know that kids do well when their families do well and families do better when they live in supportive neighborhoods and communities. To help us learn more about the needs of our community, the Casey Foundation provided a grant in 2011 to contribute to the early planning and mobilization of a `data-driven’ community change initiative. United Way NCFL used this data to start a Community Visioning and Strategic Planning process within the community. The first step included gathering more than 100 community, non-profit,

government and business leaders in June 2011 to begin engaging the community in a long-term process in discovering best practices, uncovering pockets of need and finding existing indicators that could show progress within the community.

Access Information 211: Your First Call for Help Nearly 20,000 local residents called the United Way NCFL 2-1-1 assistance hotline last year. The majority were first time callers looking for help with housing, employment, healthcare or basic needs assistance. United Way NCFL provides this 24-hour free service for anyone within the six-county service area who is looking for help. 2-1-1 specialists have access to an updated database of essential community services to connect residents with critical health and social service resources. The 2-1-1 database of information can also be accessed through the UWNCFL website.

United Way NCFL is partnering with Alachua County public schools to launch Read.Learn. Succeed in 2012, a volunteer engagement program creating stronger readers.

investing in education In a recent study, 29 percent of parents worry their child may not finish high school, and with good reason. Studies also show that one in four children do not graduate on time, or at all. United Way NCFL is investing in the Educa-

tion of area children through strategic initiatives. United Way is working to fulfill the long-term goal of increasing the high school graduation rate through Success By 6 programs that encourage early childhood education through family strengthening, home visitation and tutoring. By helping families and parents know how to create teachable moments at home, children become more interested in reading and are better prepared to

learn when they enter school. The United Way NCFL board is so committed to the investment in education initiatives, that since 2005, United Way has invested $1.6 million, with a million dollars coming from reserves to provide the additional funding to Success By 6 programs. This funding is in addition to annual allocations made through investments of approximately $1 million from the Community Investment Fund. And once kids are ready to learn and enter school, United Way NCFL continues investing in their educational outcome with specific initiatives that address concerns from teachers and school administration. Teacher feedback indicated that two areas in general impact student concentration and learning – hunger and pain. United Way NCFL worked with community partners on initiatives to combat these issues.

program success Weekend Hunger Backpack Program Nearly 50 percent of children in our community regularly go without meals. We are working to change that by sending food home on weekends to keep them full and ready to learn on Monday mornings. At the close of the 2010/11 school year, 53 percent of teachers who responded said they saw an improvement in behavior and/ or academics from the children enrolled in the Weekend Hunger Backpack Program. 2010/2011 School Year Results

• Six local elementary schools • 358 children • 23,136 pounds of food

• 18,075 meals • $34,704 worth of food • $325 adds one child to the program for a year United Way NCFL worked closely with Catholic Charities to locate homeless children and with the School Board of Alachua County to identify schools with the highest rates of free and reduced-lunch when expanding the Backpack Program. Additional schools are being added in the 2011/12 school year. United Way NCFL transitioned the lead role in this program to Catholic Charities in the 2011/12 year.

Smiles Dental Sealant Program Tooth decay is the number one chronic childhood disease in

the U.S., and children lose more than 51 million school hours each year due to dental related illness. Through our partnership with UF’s College of Dentistry and Smiles Across America, the Smiles Dental Sealant Program ensures that children are in school, ready to learn. The pilot program began in Alachua County. 2010/2011 School Year Results

• Six  elementary/middle schools and Head Start centers • 87 children identified with dental health concerns • $21,542 in services provided at no cost • 121 children treated • Expanding into additional schools for 2011/12

Hunger Also Affects Seniors - Meals on Wheels “It has been about 12 years since I started with Eldercare of Alachua County; At that time I had my ninth back surgery and a 12 inch rod in my spine. With the help of Eldercare services, I was able to come out of the nursing home and live a full and meaningful life in my own home. I receive Home Delivered Meals, Personal Care, Home Making and Life Line (services). These services make it possible for me to continue living in my own home. The United Way funded services through Eldercare help me feel comfortable and safe knowing I can be home and have great service as well as help in my home. I am forever grateful for the service they have provided.” —Bette Kerr

Engaged and Committed United Way Affinity Groups Get Their Start in 2011 The Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) launched in 2011 with a small, focused group of women leadership donors with big ideas on how to further support our community and engage other women. With their minds, hands and hearts set on helping and supporting children in our community, the WLC set early goals to increase funding for children’s initiatives. United Way’s WLC is one of the longest standing women’s philanthropy groups in the nation. A national network of 50,000 women, the WLC has raised more than $700,000 for local communities.

WLC gained momentum at the close of FY 2010/11 with the formation of the first WLC steering committee (below). We expect to see great things from this group of smart, determined, motivated women in the upcoming year!

Likewise, another new group emerged in 2011 from the pool of existing leadership donors. The Young Leaders Society (YLS) gathered donors under the age of 40 with a mission to excite them about citizen engagement, social networking and creating a legacy within their community. The YLS held initial meetings this year and have a plan set in motion to attract additional and future donors to their group through the use of social gatherings, executive training and hands-on volunteer projects. As the YLS grows, United Way NCFL is excited to see what can happen when a group of socially conscience, young business men and women come together on common goals and initiatives.
