UNITED WAY OF ASHEVILLE AND BUNCOMBE COUNTY


We come from different places. We come to different conclusions. But underneath it all, we share a passion for improving the human condition. When we LIVE UNITED, we create real, lasting change in the building blocks of a good life: the education, income and health of our communities, our families, even the person next to us.

Real change won’t happen without you.

United Way’s givers, advocates and volunteers may not always have a lot in common. We come from different backgrounds and belief systems. We don’t look the same, and our politics aren’t the same. We have different occupations, we’re fans of different sports teams, and we listen to different kinds of music. We give of our time and our resources for different reasons. We have different points of view on which issues we feel are most critical and what kinds of change are needed to improve lives in our community. But here’s the really amazing thing - when we look beyond our differences, we can make a difference. When we combine our resources in the Community Investment Fund, we see amazing results, like the ones in the insert in the middle of this book. It’s a powerful thing to come together, united, to tackle the tough issues. United Way gives us a place to do that. We can volunteer through Hands On Asheville-Buncombe. We can tell people about 2-1-1, which provides critical health and human services referrals and information. We can support students having more opportunities for quality out-of-school care through United Way’s Middle School Success initiative. And, of course, United Way is a trustworthy steward of the dollars we give, investing them in comprehensive Education, Income and Health strategies that consider the issues from all sides. Whatever it is that motivates you, whatever the issues are that you support, thank you so much for your generosity and commitment to United Way. In this book, we recognize our Leaders in Giving, including our Diamond Donors (p. 29) and Highlands Circle, which this year has become an affinity group for donors age 21 to 40 who give $500 or more (p. 27).

THANK YOU for demonstrating again this year that

what unites us - a desire to advance the common good - is stronger than anything that divides us.

LET’S LOOK BEYOND OUR DIFFERENCES.

LET’S MAKE A

DIFFERENCE. TRACY BUCHANAN, CAREPARTNERS HEALTH SERVICES PRESIDENT & CEO, AND DAVID BAILEY, UNITED WAY PRESIDENT & CEO

United Way Board of Directors Chair

TRACY BUCHANAN

“One of the things I’m most proud of from the past year is

United Way’s return on your 2010-2011 investment in Education, Income and Health. United Way volunteers invested $2.5 million Community Investment Fund dollars in programs achieving the community-level results we want to see. From that investment, we expected 28,500 people would improve their lives. “What happened exceeded our expectations, and 34,000 people saw a change in their condition. These folks moved successfully toward high school graduation, met their basic needs and moved toward financial self-sufficiency and accessed quality primary and behavioral healthcare, among many other achievements. Your generosity has inspired hope for a better tomorrow not only for these 34,000 people, but for all of us.”

T h e To cqueville Society “When Americans ask for the cooperation of their fellow citizens, it is seldom refused; and I have often seen it afforded spontaneously and with great good will.” Alexis de Tocqueville

Members of the Tocqueville Society are leaders among leaders. Donors who give at this most generous level do so because they have a strong commitment to our community and want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity for a quality education, financial stability and good health. Our local Tocqueville Society was founded in 1990 by Charlie and Cary Owen, George and Donna Renfro, and Jerry Sternberg. Since then, it has grown to include 57 individuals and couples who have given more than $9 million to address the most pressing needs in our community.

2011-2012 Tocqueville Society Chair

MICHAEL CRAWFORD

“Our members contributed $955,000 in the 2011

campaign. That’s $88,000 more than last year and an outstanding accomplishment. Your generosity is very much appreciated, and I’ve been honored to lead this group. I know that in 2012 we’ll continue to create opportunities for people to have a better life. Thank you for strengthening your community through United Way. You all are exceptional!”

Tocqueville Community Service Award recipients demonstrate outstanding contributions to the nonprofit health and human services of our community; commitment to the work of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County with gifts of time and money; sustained contributions over a period of years to a variety of nonprofits; leadership that promotes philanthropy throughout the community; and generosity in personal giving. Jim and Robin Stickney’s friends, family, fellow community leaders and Tocqueville members believe they embody these values: “They are the finest example of community building and community service.” “They are great ‘poster folks’ for the Live United brand.” “They’re there because they truly want to help people.” “They are not only generous themselves, they also find subtle, graceful ways to inspire the generosity of others.” “I can’t think of two more deserving people with all they’ve done for the community.”

Congratulations, Jim and Robin! Thank you for your years of leadership, philanthropy and service. The impact of your contributions will be felt throughout our community for years to come.

2011 Tocqueville Community Service Award Recipients

JIM AND ROBIN STICKNEY

“When people talk about United Way, it is often in the

context of how giving to United Way translates into changing the lives through the Community Investment Fund. We have found that in addition to that, United Way changes the lives of donors. Being involved in United Way - learning about community needs, getting to know other volunteers as we grapple with the challenges of raising and distributing resources, and having the satisfaction of knowing that this work truly makes a difference - has changed us fundamentally. We truly believe in the power of giving through United Way, and we are humbled to receive the honor of this recognition through the Tocqueville Society.”

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” John Quincy Adams The Peaks Society was established in 1984 to recognize donors who invest $1,000 or more annually in United Way, share the vision of a strong community, and commit their time and resources to making it happen. Leadership Givers know that when we combine our resources and invest in proven solutions that address our community’s challenges, lives improve and we all win. Because of you, more than 30,000 people can now dream more, learn more, do more and become more.

Why we LIVE UNITED:

SARAH HENDRICKS & GLENN WILSON “I’m glad United Way is focusing on Health. I think it’s really important

that people experiencing trauma from violence or abuse increase their likelihood of recovery. I’m passionate about this issue because this is where we need to do more work in our community. It’s paramount that we try to accomplish this.” Glenn Wilson, Diamond Donor of 62 years, avid mystery novel reader

“I’m glad United Way is focusing on Income. Recovering from the

bumps in our paths stems from the compassion of others who have been there and can help lead the way back to stability. I’m passionate about identifying those in crisis and connecting them to the programs that can provide understanding and compassionate direction to get to recovery.” Sarah Hendricks, second year Leadership Giver, equestrian/cyclist/Triathlete

Glenn and Sarah may come from different places in their careers, but they are united in their desire to be part of creating long-lasting change in their community through United Way.

HANNAH WEBB & DR. SUSAN MIMS

“I’m passionate about people in our community living health lives by

being active and learning to take good care of their mental and physical health. I’m a Leadership Giver because I believe through United Way, people are empowered to make a difference.” Hannah Webb, single, HUGE Clemson fan

“I’m glad United Way is focusing on the three determinants of better

living for everyone. As a physician involved in improving systems of care, I see that the work of the United Way is vital to helping people live healthier lives. Investing in people by helping support education, economic development and access to healthcare are all essential factors to improving overall health and well being.” Dr. Susan Mims, married, proud fan of her son’s soccer team

GOING GREEN Again this year, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County asked Leadership Givers if they would prefer to receive the Leaders in Giving Book electronically or in hard copy for two reasons. One, we are always looking for ways to be more fiscally responsible, and two, we hope to continually reduce our impact on the environment.

Wilsonart CEO TIM JOHNSTON AND DIRECTOR OF MISSION AND VALUES SISTER MARIA GORETTI WELDON OF SISTERS OF MERCY

In the past two years, many Leadership Givers responded they would prefer to receive e-mails or access our Web site for United Way information. In response, we continue to develop ways to reach out to Leadership Givers in budget and environmentally friendly ways, like video messages and e-newsletters, in addition to traditional methods such as mailings.

UNIQUE APART

UNITED TOGETHER Why we LIVE UNITED:

PAT FUGATE-HOCK & SCOTT WORKMAN “I’m passionate about children, families and those at risk of poor

health increasing their physical activity and healthy eating because, as a cancer survivor, I know it’s very important to have good health. My prayer is that all people would have this same advantage.” Pat Fugate-Hock, “gym rat,” calls Mills River home

“I’m glad United Way is focusing on Education. I think it’s really

important that children from birth to kindergarten attend high-quality, affordable early care and education programs. As the father of a twoyear-old daughter, I believe learning begins at birth and all children deserve the best opportunities for learning and development.” Scott Workman, martial artist, resident of West Asheville

Pat and Scott may live in different sides of the county, but they meet in the middle at United Way to share their passion for advancing the common good.

Highlands Circle United Way’s Young Leaders “Change brings opportunity.” Nido Quebein In early 2011, committee chairs and United Way staff reexamined Highlands Circle’s purpose to make sure it was serving an important role in the community and furthering the mission of United Way. What came out of the strategic rebranding process was a fresh, innovative group designed to be highly inclusive. It also now has a unique niche among the service and leadership offerings for our community’s young professionals. The new, improved Highlands Circle is now an affinity group for active community investors in their 20s and 30s who give $500 or more annually to United Way. Highlands Circle will engage members through networking, volunteerism and professional/ leadership development opportunities that connect members’ financial giving and their active involvement in their community in order to create long-lasting, positive change in people’s lives.

2012 HIGHLANDS CIRCLE AFFINITY GROUP CHAIR:

PAIGE LITTLEJOHN

“We are so excited with the new direction of Highlands Circle

and hope that after reading through the changes we’ve made that you will spread the word with friends, family and coworkers. We believe that this unique affinity group will give young professionals a meaningful way to invest in their community and an active way to help create long lasting change. All while connecting them with other fun, interesting people. “Thank you to the 2011 committee members who planned the programming last year. And a special thanks to the 2011 Highlands Circle members who provided their input during the strategic rebranding.”

what is an AFFINITY GROUP?

Affinity groups within the United Way system are collaborations of donors with shared interests who are committed to significantly improving the quality of life in their region through focused philanthropic giving, advocacy and volunteering.

R:

Unlike giving societies, such as The Tocqueville Society or The Peaks Society, whose memberships are based solely on giving level, an affinity group gives members the opportunity to help create long lasting change and enhances their development as individuals and as community leaders.

BY MISSION

Insurance Service of Asheville

Why we LIVE UNITED:

SCOTT BURNETTE & KATHY JACKSON

“I believe that everyone in our community needs quick and accurate

access to support services. United Way’s 2-1-1 service fills this need perfectly. The fire service sees our community’s basic needs on a daily basis. Without 2-1-1, our community’s basic needs would go unmet in so many instances.”

Scott Burnette, runner, WNC native

“I’m glad United Way is focusing on Health issues for all children and

families. I think it’s really important that EVERYONE keep moving and eat healthy food! Over the years and from giving to United Way organizations across the country, I have become convinced my money goes to the places with the most need! Kathy Jackson, yoga enthusiast, grew up outside WNC

Scott and Kathy may come from different places, but they share a passion for helping people connect to resources and receive the support they need through giving to United Way.
