United Way Raises More Than $10.1 Million to Help Our Community
Thanks to the generosity of our local community, United Way of the Capital Region has exceeded its campaign goal of $10,040,011 by raising $10,158,183. United Way made the announcement during its recent Celebration Reception at the Hilton in Harrisburg.
“United Way plays a vital role in addressing the most pressing needs in access to health care, school readiness, workforce development and basic needs,” said 2018 Campaign Chair A. Craig Hillemeier, M.D., CEO of Penn State Health and Dean of Penn State College of Medicine. “Lives are improved every day thanks to the organization’s collective work with community partners and dedicated volunteers. None of this work can be accomplished without resources. From individual gifts to corporate contributions, every gift makes a difference.”
At the event, Timothy B. Fatzinger, United Way of the Capital Region president and CEO, acknowledged the outstanding support of the Pillar Society, which consists of organizations that contribute $100,000 or more in combined corporate and employee giving to United Way. This year, the Pillar Society makes up 58 percent of the entire campaign.
