Key Message Dear Friends, During 2017, the United Way of Abilene and its partner agencies made great progress toward our mission of ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. We worked with our Community Partners to address the needs of today and tomorrow while seeking ways to create positive, lasting change. Everyone in West Central Texas is connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, and when people are healthy! The citizens of Abilene, the West Central Texas area, the United Way of Abilene and its partner agencies all faced some special challenges in 2017. The need for human services has increased significantly in the last few months while financial resources became tight. Our partners have done an outstanding job of meeting community needs during these challenging times. Your gifts to the United Way have been used efficiently, stretched, and multiplied by our 24 partner agencies! I sincerely thank all of you, the members of the United Way of Abilene, for your gifts of time, talent, and treasure. The generous financial gifts you have made to the 2018 campaign will assist our partners in meeting the needs of the community in the coming year. The volunteers who reviewed the programs ensured that your dollars are going to programs that meet one or more of our stated goals. These review team and stewardship volunteers put in many hours on our behalf. I am grateful that we have these talented people who are willing to serve our community. They have earned our heartfelt thank you. Thank you for your continued and generous support,

Dr. Cathy Ashby President & CEO, United Way of Abilene

Susan Watts Chair, United Way of Abilene Board of Directors

Community Impact

At its core, Community Impact harnesses the power of the entire community to create significant, sustainable improvements and thus it requires many community partners working together to solve complex problems. In order to have the most significant impact, we focus our work on efforts achieving measurable change on key priorities in the areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Health. Because of contributions annually to the United Way of Abilene campaign, our Community Partners are able to positively impact individuals and families. Together we change stories. In 2017, more than 50 volunteers dedicated their time to review programs through Community Impact Review Teams and Stewardship Review Teams. These volunteers reviewed program outcomes, made site visits, and analyzed financial information to ensure your gift to United Way is used efficiently and effectively. Our community’s commitment to creating opportunities to help individuals and families achieve their greatest potential is living proof that each of us has the ability to make a difference.

"My story is not what I had originally planned, but I am thankful for a community that invests in changing stories." Lori 4

We are thankful to those sponsors, fans, and volunteers who have continued to partner with us to make this unique event a success. We are looking forward to hosting the 4th annual event April 27 & 28, 2018 at the Nelson Park Festival Gardens. Visit keycityblues.com or find us on Facebook to learn more about the event and our sponsors.
