United Way announces support to 25 programs

$812,000 in pledges in Fall 2012 campaign

ANDERSON, Ind. — The board of directors of United Way of Madison County has approved a community support budget of $1,092,320, with nearly $850,000 of direct investment to the community and $245,000 of leveraged support from outside sources.

The budget includes funding of more than $475,000 to 25 programs at 21 community organizations and donor designated gifts to agencies of more than $131,000.

“The campaign is by far the largest source of funding for our work, and for that I thank each and every donor,” said Nancy Vaughan, United Way of Madison County president, in a press release. The Fall 2012 campaign will close April 30 with gifts and pledges-to-date of approximately $812,000. Additional contributions will increase funding for programs and requests that are received during the year.

In addition to agency programs, United Way provides direct support of $65,000 for utility assistance and other basic needs through the Community Access Network and $18,000 in support of 2-1-1, the 24-hour information and referral service.

Additional funding raised through grants, direct gifts and sponsorships is invested in Born Learning Connection, Community Access Network support, Covering Kids and Families and other services in the areas of financial stability, volunteer development, health and education.

“While the support we are able to provide to Madison County is significant, there are, unfortunately, many unmet needs,” Vaughan said. United Way received grant requests totaling more than $1.1 million, more than twice the grant funding budget. About two-thirds of the funds were awarded in the strategic focus areas of early childhood and financial stability. The remainder was spread across a multitude of human services needs.

Donations to United Way of Madison County may be sent to P.O. Box 1200, Anderson IN 46015 or made online at www.unitedwaymadisonco.org.
