United Way crosses campaign finish line

The United Way of Greater Augusta has met its 2010-2011 campaign goal of $600,000 – raising $603,000 for partner agencies in the coming fiscal year.

The campaign relies on the giving of both local corporations and individuals. Because of these generous donations, allocations and awards to various non-profits and charities are made possible. The non-profits go through a rigorous application and evaluation process in order to ensure that donors’ money is being awarded wisely.

The United Way staff and board are celebrating the end of this very successful campaign year with an awards ceremony on Thursday, April 7 at Barren Ridge Vineyards. The corporations and individuals who made up this year’s campaign will be recognized and then there will be a DJ and dancing. Food and drink are being provided and it’s looking to be a fun evening.
