2013 CASE FOR GIVING Bill Brown President and Chief Executive Officer Harris Corporation

“Corporate responsibility is important to Harris and our employees, and we are proud to support and partner with United Way of Brevard -- an exceptional organization focused on addressing the fundamental needs in our community.”

Kim Brown Venture Management Group United Way Treasurer

“As United Way Treasurer, I’ve seen how efficient and effective our local United Way is at managing your donations. I can attest that low overhead and solid financial oversight are hallmarks of this organization.”

Wayne Ivey Sheriff, Brevard County

Jeff Kiel President and Publisher FLORIDA TODAY Communications 2013 United Way Campaign Chair

“It hasn’t taken me long to see how valuable United Way is to our community. I’ve had the opportunity to serve low-income seniors a meal at Seniors at Lunch. I got to see where women and children seek refuge after escaping an abusive situation and where individuals with disabilities go to find a community of support. United Way and their partners provide services in a way that preserves dignity and respect for those they assist. This is my motivation to pledge this year, and I hope you’ll join me in working even harder to help those in need.”


EDUCATION, INCOME AND HEALTH For 56 years, your United Way has been working hard in our community to ensure we have a safety net of services available when people need help. But it isn’t enough. We aspire to drive even greater community change. That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life – Education, Income and Health.

Education Students who lag behind in reading are more likely than their peers to drop out of high school, to be unemployed or underemployed and to end up on welfare or in prison. To boost student achievement, United Way focuses on the strategies that local education experts say are the keys to long-term student success: • Closing the 3rd Grade Reading Achievement Gap • Summer Reading Loss Prevention - 10,000 VPK and kindergarten students • Family Literacy

3rd Grade FCAT Reading Scores (Passing %>=3) Total Students White, Non-Hispanic Black or African American, Non-Hispanic Hispanic/Latino Free or Reduced Lunch

Income Without the ability to pay the monthly bills, a family may find it impossible to achieve any sense of security, let alone take the steps necessary to create a better life. To help people on the road to financial stability, United Way focuses on these key strategies: • Financial Education Classes - 1,200 taught last year • Tax Preparation/EITC - over 6,000 returns completed for low income families and military personnel • Benefits Connection - $3,624,000 in Food Stamps

We want to improve our community by helping people help themselves. That’s
