Impressive! First Weber Group’s 2009 United Way campaign raised $29,247 in total agent/employee/corporate donations with an additional $3,484 coming from Oshkosh, Prairie du Sac, Rome Lakes, Wisconsin Rapids, Wausau Grand Avenue, Wisconsin Dells and Metro South for a statewide total of $32,731. That is fantastic, especially in this economy.
That participation won First Weber some awards, too:
Red Feather (largest increase in employee giving) 3rd place in organizations with 100+ employees
Community Chest Award (largest increase in employee and corporate giving) #10 in organizations with 100+ employees
Best Practices Award (given to organizations that execute all of the 10 best practice strategies and have an overall increase in giving)
Award of Distinction (campaigns that increased 25% this year)
The United Way of Dane County met their 2009 campaign goal of $16.5 million to help those in Dane County. We’re happy to be a part of that goal.
