2020 – 2021 Annual Report

Thank You!

for Facing the Future UNITED

An Update From Our Board President

What a year it has been! 2020-2021 was filled with much anxiety, hardship and pain… but, it was also filled with positive impacts with the local community coming together to assist each other, a hope for better days and individuals stepping up to make our community a better place for everyone.

I can not say enough about the great staff at United Way of Iredell County (UWIC). Each one of them have extended themselves beyond their normal duties this past year to make sure UWIC responded to the challenges our community faced. Along with the staff, we have a Board that has “rolled up its sleeves” to support all the great initiatives that have been put into place. Many hours and volunteer time have been given to make sure UWIC has been ready and available to meet the challenges of this year.

Our UWIC focused their efforts this year on looking towards immediate and developing needs throughout the county. Because of what was heard in the community, the Iredell County Covid-19 Response Fund and the Iredell County Covid-19 Education Fund were established, meeting as many immediate needs as possible. Combined these funds were able to provide fast-acting dollars for more than 110,000 needs in our community! More than $1.5 million dollars were given out to 47 local different nonprofits!

In addition, our efforts surrounding the Endowment for the Future and Love United Iredell have continued to gain momentum thanks to the amazing support of this community!

NC 2-1-1 has also handled an astounding number of calls (187,747 calls and emails) and online inquiries (680,000 website sessions) to assist individuals throughout the state.

Today, Covid-19 efforts are continuing and are shifting towards recovery within our community and United Way of Iredell County is meeting the requests as comprehensively as possible.

Let’s not put off for tomorrow what we can do today. Let’s continue to give for the health, education, and financial stability of everyone in our community.

MAKING AN IMPACT

The United Way Endowment for the Future creates tangible and sustainable resources that are dedicated, forever, to our mission. It will guarantee our ability to respond to our changing needs and achieve a lasting community impact for generations to come. The best part of our endowment is that it supports new and innovative programs across our community. It does not fund the annual campaign or the administration of United Way of Iredell County.

LEGACY CIRCLE

Our challenge now is to continue the growth and development of the Endowment to ensure it can meet the needs of this community for generations to come. A Legacy Circle for the Endowment has been created which will bring opportunities to recognize individuals or families who leave a gift that will benefit our community for future generations.

 

We invite you to make a gift through cash, stock or a planned gift that meets your needs. With a gift to the Legacy Circle your wishes will live on and ensuring your lifelong efforts for accumulation will continue to bear fruit by changing the lives of others in our community.

“Give a gift that improves lives for generations to come;
leave a legacy gift for your community.”

Dawne Clark
