2 | United Way of Racine County  2012 Annual Report


MESSAGE FROM LEADERSHIP Dear supporters, The past year has been an exciting one for United Way! We celebrated a milestone anniversary, created new partnerships and continued to improve lives throughout the county. We are proud to share the 2012 highlights with you through our Annual Report. As this report shows, United Way of Racine County, through our program and initiative work, continues to focus on the building blocks for a good life: education, income and health. Our funding strategy invests in health and human service partners and projects that demonstrate collaboration, efficiency and effective use of resources with measurable results. Our commitment to meet urgent needs is as strong as our promise to focus on the future and create lasting change. Throughout our 90 years, United Way has had the unique ability to bring people and organizations together to get things done. Our Advancing Family Assets initiative works with numerous partners, such as Educators Credit Union and Modine Manufacturing, to help families become more financially stable and successful. In 2012, we brought together the Racine Unified School District, local businesses, and concerned community members to tackle the issue of early reading achievement and created a new initiative called Schools of Hope. No individual or organization can solve our community’s issues alone and none of what follows on these pages could have happened without you. We are inspired and encouraged by the dedication of all of you who give, advocate and volunteer. Thank you for your support. Sincerely,

Francisco Sanchez Board Chair

David L. Maurer

President

90 celebrating

years

In 1887 in Denver, Colorado, a diverse group of community leaders—a woman, a priest, two ministers and a rabbi— came together to improve community conditions. The campaign they created, which joined ten local health and welfare agencies to a common goal, became one of the most important social inventions in history and sparked a movement that established United Way. In 1973, the National Football League (NFL) and United Way established a partnership to increase public awareness of social service issues facing the country. The partnership has enabled United Way to share its special message with more than 110 million viewers during the football season. At almost 40 years, the partnership is the longest-running sports/charity public service campaign of its kind. Today, 125 years later, United Way continues to focus on mobilizing the caring power of communities and making a difference in people’s lives. Nearly 1,800 community-based organizations in 41 countries and territories, are proud to be part of United Way.

In 1922, H.F. Johnson Sr. of S.C. Johnson and Son, and a group of his fellow business leaders gathered to discuss consolidating charitable efforts. Their determination created the Racine Welfare Fund. The first combined drive raised $75,000. Funds were distributed to seven agencies, some of which are still in existence and in partnership with United Way today, including the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts and the Salvation Army. Throughout the years, United Way has been known as the Racine Community Chest, Racine United Community Services, and the Racine Area United Way, Inc. No matter the name, United Way’s work to improve lives and create a better community has remained the same. Its role has expanded from a simple fundraiser to a community builder. It has evolved into an organization where individuals and groups with common concerns join together to address issues, find solutions and create lasting change. In the next 90 years, with the dedication of volunteers and community leaders, United Way will continue to evolve and grow, and continue to focus on advancing the common good and creating opportunities for a better life for all in Racine County.

CRAIG LEIPOLD AND HELEN JOHNSON-LEIPOLD ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE DONORS

“My father and mother instilled in us the importance of giving back more than we take from this world, of being more a producer than consumer. They showed us that active philanthropists do more than write checks, they roll up their sleeves and work to bring about positive and lasting change in their communities. That’s what United Way is all about, and that’s why it’s such a big part of Craig’s and my life. The next 90 years are filled with great promise for Racine, and we hope our children and grandchildren experience the joy of being involved with United Way to make a real and meaningful difference in people’s lives.”

In 2012, United Way of Racine County was one of four local charities to receive a donation from Los Angeles Clipper, two-time NBA All-Star Forward and Racine-native Caron Butler. Butler’s donation to United Way was in direct support of United Way’s Advancing Family Assets initiative.

Caron and Andrea Butler LIVE UNITED!

On July 20, 2012, as part of Butler’s 3D—Discipline, Determination and Dedication—program, Butler and United Way hosted a “Get Active with Caron Butler” event at Park High School. Children ages five to 15 were invited to participate in various activity stations focused on exercise and a healthy lifestyle. More than 250 children and almost 100 volunteers participated in the event. Following the day’s activities, Butler hosted a dinner for Advancing Family Assets (AFA) participating families. “It feels good to come back to Racine and reflect back on how if it wasn’t for this community and the support I received to turn my life around, I might not have found my way to the NBA,” stated Butler, “Giving back to the community is very important to me and I am grateful to be able to help these organizations and the important role they play in our community. Assisting them is a great way to have a direct impact in the areas you feel will benefit the kids and their families the most.”

Schools of Hope MISSION

Schools of Hope Racine, a United Way-led initiative in partnership with Racine Unified School District, local businesses, and other concerned community members, provides young children with tutors on a regular basis to increase reading achievement in the early grades.

EDUCATION INITIATIVE LED BY UNITED WAY OF RACINE COUNTY Currently, one in three Racine Unified School District third graders cannot read at grade level. Research shows that third-grade reading proficiency is a powerful indicator of later academic achievement. Prior to third grade, children learn to read. From fourth grade on, they read to learn. A student who is not at least moderately successful in reading by the third grade is unlikely to graduate from high school. United Way of Racine County’s newest education initiative, Schools of Hope, began its pilot semester in the fall of 2012 at Olympia Brown and Wadewitz Elementary Schools. Schools of Hope tutors are trained to use research-based strategies to help students improve their reading proficiency. Volunteers provided one-on-one support to students in kindergarten through third grade during the student’s regular school day to help them become more confident, capable readers. They are inspiring hope for a better tomorrow and making a significant difference in the lives of the children they tutor.

2012 RESULTS 2 elementary schools 80 volunteer tutors 150 students tutored 500 tutoring hours

KEITH HECK

WADEWITZ ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ELVIN, GRADE THREE “I began tutoring not knowing what to expect – from me and from my student. I was hoping to make a difference in the life of a young person; to give them hope and confidence about themselves and their future. I believe this is happening. The gift I get each week is when I see my student’s face light up with joy and satisfaction as he recognizes/works out more words and reads longer passages. I know my time with Elvin is a gift for him, and it is also a gift for me.”

JIM PARRISH

BEACON CIRCLE DONOR AND VOLUNTEER “There are a lot of places people can give money these days. The beauty of United Way, I think, number one is that it is community-focused. You’re giving to your community, helping improve your community. And number two, and a very strong number two, is that a large portion of your dollars go to help the community and are not burned up with administrative costs. If you go online and research organizations to which you can donate and look into what percent of their costs go into administration and fundraising, you might think twice before you give to them. The local aspect of United Way and its efficiency are very strong motivators.”
