United Fund announces 2013 campaign chairs


Tim and Lora have been married for 15 years, and the family is very active members of the First Baptist Church in Greensburg.

“We need your help”, stated Lora. “Our individual actions may be small but together, we have the power to make a big difference. The United Fund provides the leadership to make lasting change in our community. And now is the time. By giving to the United Fund, we can make our community stronger.”

Tim shared, “The agencies count on donations each and every year to continue their missions to serve the individuals and families right here in OUR COMMUNITY.

United Fund is a fundraising organization formed to conduct one fund drive per year to support several worthy partners. Funds that are collected provide programs and services to Decatur County residents. If you give to one organization, give to the United Fund; they are good stewards of these dollars.”

“It is a privilege and an honor to have Lora and Tim lead the 2013 Decatur County United Fund Campaign,” said Joane Cunningham, United Fund Executive Director. “Their personal passion to tend to our roots in the community makes them a perfect fit for the role of campaign leaders.”

“The goal of this year’s campaign is $390,000 up $60,000 from last year. Last year, the United Fund exceeded its goal, raising $432,746. “We’ve increased our goal to be aggressive, but yet sensitive to the economic times,” Lora Williams noted.

The Community Campaign will begin later this summer.

Joane Cunningham, Executive Director, noted, “The United Fund met goal in 2012 raising a record $432,746. Through the annual community investment/allocation process, United Fund invests in programs and services that impact the health and well-being of our community. The overwhelming donor support allowed for an additional $43,000 to be distributed in special grants to agencies for programs, operating expenses, and other needs in 2013.
