United Way of Racine County ď‚– 2013 Annual Report | 3

2013 United Way of Racine County works with businesses, nonprofit organizations, philanthropies, civic groups, and individuals from across the county. Throughout the year, we bring these groups together to help make our community a better place to live and work, and celebrate all that we accomplish together.

DAY OF CARING United Way’s Day of Caring was held on September 7, following the Annual Campaign Kickoff. More than 230 individuals volunteered their time at 20 different nonprofits throughout the county. Volunteers participated in a variety of projects – from installing a Born Learning Trail at Echo Park in Burlington to painting blacktop games at Roosevelt Elementary, which is also a United Way Schools of Hope location. A special thank you to our sponsors:

BORN LEARNING TRAILS The Born Learning Trails offer activity stations with fun, interactive learning games that parents and caregivers can play with young children. United Way partnered with Leadership Racine to install trails at West Park and at North Beach Park in Racine during the spring of 2013. Another trail was installed at Echo Park in Burlington as a 2013 Day of Caring project. A special thank you to our Echo Park Trail sponsors: Western Racine County ACTION Committee member Tom McLaughlin helps to install a Born Learning Trail at Echo Park in Burlington.

Highlights THE HERITAGE AWARD In May 2013, United Way presented the Heritage Award to Mike Batten and the Batten Family at the Salute to Leadership event. The Heritage Award honors those who have supported United Way and the community through at least two generations. The award has been presented only twice before —to the Johnson family and to Bill and Mary Walker.

EMERGING LEADERS United Way began Emerging Leaders for the next generation of philanthropic professionals; those who want to understand our community, its needs and how to make a difference. Individuals (age 40 and under) who make an annual gift to United Way of $500 or more are invited participate. In 2013, Emerging Leaders established a planning committee and hosted two events; a volunteer day at the Racine County Food Bank, a “Teach and Talk” featuring Tom Burke.

VALENTINE’S DAY MAGIC SHOW On Valentine’s Day 2013, United Way hosted a fundraising benefit at the Plaza Theater in Burlington, featuring renowned magician David Seebach. The magical evening included delectable hors d’oeuvres, specialty desserts, raffles, and a Valentine-themed silent auction. Special thanks to the Plaza Theater, Burlington Flowers and Interiors and the Cotton Exchange for bringing our theme to life. Thank you to our sponsors:

Communities with a stable, skilled workforce are more economically competitive and have the potential to attract business and revitalize neighborhoods. Launched in 2009, Advancing Family Assets (AFA) empowers low-wage working families to better manage their lives and reach a greater level of financial stability. Guided by a family success coach, each family member sets and fulfills goals to improve their education, income and health. Notably, families learn to manage household budgets, reduce debt, improve credit scores, and grow assets. Advancing Family Assets has assisted 418 Racine County residents (156 adults and 262 children) since the program began. Those helped include the new AFA alumni group of 10 families who were inducted in June 2013. To reach alumni status, families participated in AFA for nine months or longer and reached key AFA success benchmarks including maintaining stable employment, budgeting, engaging in healthy lifestyles, and being active in the academic lives of their children. AFA’s alumni families will continue on their paths to success and serve as mentors for other participating families. Additional families will enter the alumni group
