United Way of Sarnia-Lambton Annual General Meeting March 28, 2017
The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton closed the books on a very successful 2016 at its 60th Annual General Meeting Tuesday. The Board of Directors reported its 2016 audited financial statements and the annual investment of donors’ dollars, outlining successful impacts and outcomes from the funded services.
The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton AGM was chaired by outgoing President Kathy Sitter.
A change in the Slate of Officers was also made as Heather Allen rejoined the board after a one year hiatus and Brian Fielder, Chris Hawksworth and Martin Vrolyk exited the board. A special thank you was made to Kathy Sitter and Richard Kelch who will remain on the Board of Directors but chose to step down from their roles as President and Campaign Chair. The Board welcomed its new executive, Jason Killingsworth, President; John Girard, First Vice-President; and Al McChesney, Second Vice-President. The 2017 Campaign Chair and campaign goal have not been announced.
“This past year the Sarnia-Lambton community showed incredible support of our general fundraising campaign while also contributing to the United Way endowment-like fund, the Future Fund,” said Dave Brown, Executive Director. “The campaign thermometer edged slightly above our goal while investments for long term sustainability in the Future Fund also rose to provide an annual yield of at least 3.5 per cent.”
“Our promise to invest funds where they are needed most continues to hold true in our community”, said Sitter. “We are investing resources where they are having the greatest impact on youth, families and seniors.”
The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton raised $2,008,991 during its 2016 campaign surpassing the goal of $2,000,000. The newly elected board will set the 2017 campaign goal this summer.
The Sarnia-Lambton United Way funds over 35 programs through 19 Agencies in three targeted impact areas. A complete copy of our financial statements as well as community investments can be found on our website www.theunitedway.on.ca.
