Northern Ozaukee chapter faces financial pinch after 2013 fundraising drive misses target by $19,000

    The United Way of Northern Ozaukee ended its 2013 campaign about $19,000 short of its $275,000 goal, but Executive Director Barbara Bates-Nelson isn’t bowed.

    “We pretty much flat-lined where we were last year, but we’re fundraising in a tough economy,” she said. “Yes, we fell a little short of our goal, but there were a lot of bright spots, too.”

    For example, corporate donations were up 12% from last year, Bates-Nelson said. The residential campaign was up 3% and now makes up 10% of the total donations, and the leadership campaign of donors who gave $150 or more increased 22%.

    The number of corporate donors also increased, she said.

    More than 825 people contributed to this year’s campaign, Bates-Nelson added.

    Although the United Way fell short of its goal, Bates-Nelson said the 16 organizations funded by the agency will receive their anticipated allocations for the year.

    The agencies have already received their first installment of United Way funds, she noted.
