United Way Annual Report Highlights Impact on the Community
For fiscal year July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016
United Way’s most recent Annual Report is now available. The report highlights United Way’s impact on the community through collaborative initiatives and partnerships with community leaders, faith-based groups, corporations, nonprofit organizations and governments. United Way is building stronger communities by going beyond single-issue solutions and temporary fixes to create long-term, sustainable change that impacts the lives of thousands in Rutherford and Cannon counties.
This past year, nearly $700,000 was saved through the use of FamilyWize Prescription Discount Cards; LEGO™ Robotics was launched as a pilot after-school program in partnership with United Way and Murfreesboro City Schools; and United Way provided CharityTracker, a web-based software that streamlines client intake to provide accurate data records and real-time communication for any organization in the community. Currently, nearly 70 organizations are active on CharityTracker. More examples of United Way’s impact in the areas of education, health and financial stability can be found in this year’s annual report.
“It is our intent to be transparent with our supporters, and our annual report is a reflection of that value,” said Meagan Flippin, United Way President and CEO. “We are pleased to share a synopsis of this past year and the results provided in the community via this report.”
United Way has the unique ability to leverage investments for the greatest impact. For every $1 invested in United Way’s operation, $13 in value of services and impact are provided to the community. The 13 to 1 return on investment was influenced by the value of programs and services such as the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, 2-1-1, FamilyWize Prescription Discount Program, the value of a volunteer and more.
The Annual Report is a communications tool developed in an effort to remain transparent and accountable to the community it serves. The comprehensive report is now available at http://www.yourlocaluw.org/annual-report. For more information about United Way, visit www.yourlocaluw.org or call 615-893-7303.
