Campaign Kickoff 2020
United Way of Charlotte County recently held our annual Campaign Kickoff on October 22 in the Port Charlotte Town Center parking lot in conjunction with our Day of Caring to launch the 2020-2021 fundraising campaign. Campaign Cabinet Co-Chairs hosted the event and interviewed all of the Partner Agencies participating. Campaign Cabinet members volunteered in orchestrating traffic and donations.
United Way of Charlotte County (UWCC) has been raising and distributing funds to benefit the Charlotte County community since 1966. Our organization has grown and changed over the years, but one thing has remained constant, UWCC’s ability to mobilize to help the most at risk members of our community and strengthen the capacity of local nonprofits to meet the needs of its most vulnerable citizens. This year’s campaign is especially critical as the community continues to address the challenges created by the pandemic.
The annual fundraising campaign encourages individuals and organizations in Charlotte County to donate and support our mission to mobilize the power of our community to break the cycle of poverty. This year’s campaign theme is “Mobilizers United.” Campaign Cabinet members hosted the Campaign Kickoff via Facebook Live.
The 2020-21 campaign will run through the end of March 2021 and seeks to raise more than $817,000. In addition to monies raised directly, UWCC also manages city and county dollars, as well as Season of Sharing funds, which when combined will total over $1.8 million managed and invested in our local community this year.
It is our fiduciary responsibility to all our donors to make sure that their dollars are having the largest impact possible in the community. A dollar given to UWCC multiplies several times over because we’re putting it where we see the most impact in changing lives here in Charlotte County.
Charlotte County is your community. We all desire to see our neighbors succeed, local businesses thrive, and our community rise above every storm of life that comes our way. One person, one donor, one volunteer can make a difference in the lives of many of our friends and neighbors. United we can make an even greater impact. We invite you to join us as we mobilize to break the cycle of poverty in Charlotte County.
