Monadnock United Way at 30% of Goal
Keene, NH, October 2, 2014 – General Campaign Chair, John Round welcomed everyone to the Colony Mill, and to the first Report Meeting of the 2014-15 Campaign. John highlighted the fact that the Pacesetter companies, Leadership Giver results, and the Campaign Kickoff events in both Keene and Peterborough have produced a lot of early energy, now it is up to everyone to maintain that energy moving forward.
Division Chairs provided their status reports, followed by John announcing the amount raised so far is $634,644 or 30% of the $2,106,234 goal!
John stressed that this year is a building/rebuilding year. Significant changes are happening throughout the community and donor landscape, and we need to be prepared to make adjustments to keep up with those changes. He reminded everyone that this year’s goal is lower than last year’s goal, but it is still 5% more than what was raised last year! John is confident that “we can do better, all of us.”Speaking to the volunteers, John said “We need you to come and tell us what you need, what are your challenges, how can we help you. If we all work together, we can reach our goal.”
