executive summary
United Way of North Central Iowa (UWNCI) is the leading health and human service organization in our regional community. It has been operating in the non-profit sector since 1923 by cultivating and distributing funds to local health and human service programs, and tracking their outcomes.

In 2009, UWNCI changed its way of operating and now focuses on only the building blocks of a good life: education, income, and health. With any change, comes challenge. It is the job of the Communications and Marketing Department to streamline the transition, inspire the community, and mobilize people to join in our mission.

Executive Summary
slide6
In 2009, UWNCI had 5,115 donors who provided financial support.

In 2009, 43 nonprofit programs throughout north central Iowa relied on funds donated from the community through UWNCI for operating costs.

In our 2009 campaign, we raised $1,142,049.62. Our goal in 2010 is $1.2 M.

UWNCI board of directors adopted the Agenda for Community Impact model in 2009, where the focus is Education, Income, and Health.

We shifted from funding agency/program outcomes to funding outcomes based on United Way established criteria. These outcomes were determined by the BOD & Community Impact Teams in 2010.

Community agencies will apply for funding by illustrating how their organization will work to achieve the United Way established outcomes.

Number of Donors

Current economic conditions continue to put UWNCI at a fundraising disadvantage. The national recession has affected north Iowa with substantial layoffs and plant closures. Increased healthcare costs and unemployment rates have reduced discretionary income therefore deterring their ability to donate.

As a large number of ‘baby boomers’ exit the workforce, they are being replaced by Generation X’ers. Unfortunately, the United Way brand does not resonate the same with this generation, this has contributed to the decrease in donors.

Our Core

We will advance the common good by changing systems to help our entire community. We believe all individuals are connected and interdependent. Our entire community wins when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, and when people are healthy. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying issues of these problems.
