STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL POSITION


Letter to the Community Dear Community Partner: What an honor it has been to serve our community as the 2017 United Way of the CSRA Chairman of the Board. This position has allowed me to deepen my understanding of the inner workings of the organization, to recognize firsthand the tremendous impact it has on our community, and to see the outstanding leadership from volunteers and staff.

On behalf of the Board, I want to say Thank You to the people who invest in United Way. Our commitment to you, our investors, is that we are thoughtful and objective with our decisions, always keeping our focus on being good stewards of your invested dollars.

In this annual report, you will read about the number of people served and the real-life stories that exist because of your dedication to our community. You’ll read a testimonial of a senior couple who turned to a United Way funded program for help as a last result in a tough situation. And, you will read about a single mother of five who depended on a United Way funded program to turn her life around. It is these stories that push us to work hard every day to achieve our goals.

Within these pages we’ll share : 1) Who we are, 2) What we do, and 3) Why we are significant to the community. We hope after reading through this report you will have a better understanding of United Way as a whole. More importantly, we hope you will have a greater awareness of your value to this organization. YOU are the heart of UNITED WAY!

Thank you for the trust you place in United Way. We take that trust very seriously.

Sincerely,

Scott Peebles // 2017 Chairman of the Board // United Way of the CSRA

IN MEMORY… This Annual Report is dedicated to the memory of four very dear and special United Way friends.

WHO we are Who is United Way of the CSRA?

You might think we are a local, nonprofit organization with a staff

of 16 dedicated employees who raise money for the community. But, we are far more than that. Ranked the number one nonprofit by Forbes Magazine in 2016, we are one of nearly 1,800 community-based United Way’s in 45 countries worldwide with a focus on community-led solutions that create opportunities for a better life for all. Locally, the driving force behind this United Way is our many volunteers. From our volunteer leadership to our many community partners, our United Way is made up of many faces. The following pages highlight many who gave of their time, talent, and resources this past year to strengthen our community and offer a hand up to those in need of assistance. United Way thanks you!

Our Volunteers & Partners Our Leadership Throughout the years, volunteers from the community have served in a variety of capacities…from the Board of Directors who govern and direct our United Way, to the Campaign Cabinet members who provide oversight and open doors for workplace campaigns, to the Citizens Review Panels who make the important funding decisions, to the many volunteers who daily help with our campaign, special events, and initiatives. Their work is an example of the spirit of volunteerism and community that exists in the CSRA.

// 2017 United Way of the CSRA ::: A N N U A L R E P O R T


we do WHAT United Way leads the way in identifying health and human service needs and securing the resources that allow individuals and families to achieve their potential and live successful lives. We bring people and organizations together to accomplish more united than any of us can do on our own. Employers, nonprofits, government, faith organizations, educators, health providers, community leaders, and many others partner with us. Together, we work to find solutions that build a stronger community for us all. We conduct routine Community Needs Assessments to identify the most pressing needs of the CSRA. Then, we run annual fundraising campaigns with the proceeds benefiting 45 vital, outcomes-based, health and human service programs at our 24 Partner Agencies. These funded programs, make a difference in the lives of local people everyday... people like Felicia. See her inspiring story below. United Way serves 15 counties of the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) including Richmond, Columbia, Burke, Glascock, Lincoln, Taliaferro, and Wilkes Counties as well as communities in Emanuel, Jefferson, Jenkins, McDuffie, and Warren Counties in Georgia. Services also extend to communities in Aiken, Edgefield, and McCormick Counties in South Carolina.

Education, Financial Stability, and Health We believe that Education, Financial Stability, and Health are essential for a good life. Strong, vibrant, and healthy families are the cornerstone of every community. A quality education is essential to obtaining and keeping a job with health benefits. Sufficient income for necessities and savings for the future will allow families to become financially stable and secure. Access to quality healthcare keeps children on track in school and adults productive at work. These focus areas are structured to create positive changes in the CSRA with lasting results. With your help in 2017, we were able to provide funding for 16 education related programs, 8 financial stability and support programs, and 22 health and wellness programs. Through these and other programs, United Way and our Partner Agencies provided vital health and human services to over

218,000 residents in the CSRA.

FELICIA’s STORY

Felicia, age 38, came to Augusta directly off the bus from Florida, but she wasn’t on vacation or relocating. She had just been released from prison. A child with a very difficult upbringing, Felicia began using substances at the age of 12. In and out of rehab programs, she had five children along the way. Like many addicts, she had attempted suicide more than once and was incarcerated numerous times.

When Felicia was released from a Florida prison, she was preapproved to enter the Women’s Job Skills Training Program at The Salvation Army of Augusta. There, she poured her heart and soul into making the most of the experience. Eventually, her longterm goal to obtain full-time employment and have her children back in her life was realized. Your support of United Way makes it possible to change the direction and outcome of local lives, like Felicia’s, every day. You make a difference when you give to United Way.

When six year old Marcus transferred to a local primary school mid-year, his basic skills were greatly lacking. Fortunately, his teacher identified his needs and enrolled him in the Tutoring Program at Communities In Schools of Burke County.

69% improved attendance in school. 69% improved academic performance.

With the help of a United Way-funded Tutoring Program, Marcus now has a sound basic skills foundation and is on tract to obtain a good education. Your contributions help to make programs like this available for local children in need of assistance.

HUH? WHAT’D YOU SAY?

John and Delores, both in their eighties, have both been through a lot of illness and surgeries over the years. But, when John began experiencing hearing loss, it caused major problems with their day-today living. Through a family member, they learned about the Speech and Hearing Center where John was able to obtain a hearing aid and the instruction needed to properly wear and maintain the device.

With various obstacles with their health and finances, the new hearing aid was a tremendous blessing. Now, they can visit with friends and family in the home, and John can communicate with their doctors concerning health issues. Your contributions to United Way help ensure that programs like the Hearing Aid Program at the Speech and Hearing Center continue to be available when needed. Thanks for your support. //

united way WHY Our Significance in the Community United Way of the CSRA is a vital part of the community, impacting the lives of local residents every day for the better. We are best known for fundraising, but did you know that we bring so much more to the community? In 2017, we were responsible for securing and managing over $4.5 million in support of the CSRA. Known as Total Resources, this number includes all funds raised through workplace campaigns as well as special events – like the School Supply Drives. It also includes monies managed and distributed through various grants – like AmeriCorps VISTA, sponsorships, gifts-in-kind, and special programs – like FamilyWize. These Total Resources make this United Way the second largest funding source of health and human services in the CSRA – second only to the government. Our significance goes far beyond the dollars raised, managed, and distributed. The true worth of United Way can be measured in the lives of local residents forever changed for the better…people like Felicia, Marcus, John, and Delores whom you read about on pages 11 and 13 of this report. If you’ve ever given to United Way – be it your time, talent, or a donation – YOU have helped to make possible everything within this report. Through these efforts, we were able to provide a hand-up to over 218,000 residents of the Central Savannah River Area who found themselves in need of assistance in 2017. They are men, women, and children you may never meet and whose names you may never know. Nevertheless, the success of every individual benefits us all.

Thank YOU for your ongoing

commitment and support. YOU are UNITED WAY!
