The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton reported its 2021 audited financial statements at the 65th Annual General Meeting today. The report also included the annual investment of donors’ dollars.
The AGM was chaired by President Jason Killingsworth, who will remain at the helm of the Board of Directors for 2022. The board welcomed new director Greg Findlay to the Slate of Officers while thanking exiting board member Susan Doughty.
“When times are tough and things seem uncertain, goals are sometimes hard to meet. In our community we help, support and lift each other up,” said Killingsworth. “The generous gifts to United Way of Sarnia-Lambton came through for our community and we raised $1,648,000 plus an additional $100,000 for other agencies through our Donor Option program.”
“United Way continued to explore ways to make the organization more efficient and effective by investing in platforms and processes that allow for additional cost saving in an effort to support our community partners,” said Dave Brown, Executive Director. “One example is the Will Power campaign which focuses on individuals leaving legacy gifts to United Way through their wills and estates.”
The newly elected board will set the 2022 campaign target this summer.
The Sarnia-Lambton United Way funds over thirty programs and services 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.
