UNITED WAY OF ASHEVILLE AND BUNCOMBE COUNTY

2011 RESULTS FROM OUR BOARD CHAIR

In 2011, 23 staff and volunteers created United Way’s 2012-2014 Strategic Plan, elements of which you can see below in our new theory of change and updated mission and values. This strategic plan provides a framework for the focused, outcomes-based annual plans staff use to guide their work. In 2011, staff completed 128 annual plan activities - an impressive accomplishment yielding impressive results. The return on our $2.5 million 2010-2011 Community Investment Fund investment, for example, exceeded expectations. Instead of the 28,500 people we expected to see reach their goals, nearly 34,000 people successfully improved their conditions in Education, Income and Health. The Board of Directors applauds the high-quality work of our staff, volunteers and partners and looks forward to what we can accomplish together in 2012.
