This year, Nancy led the campaign for an organization with 1700 employees. She also had the unique challenge of finding ways to keep the campaign local as it is a regionalized campaign directed out of Indianapolis. This is not an easy task. She not only excelled at running a campaign within a regional framework but she personally created new giving pathways that enabled ALL employees to give, even those on vendor and contracted payrolls. Again not an easy task. She paired all of this with sharing United Way’s local mission and creating fun events for employees that further supported the campaign.

Tyrone was instrumental in his own organization’s campaign, but he also personally challenged other manufacturers and invited businesses to support United Way. He did this by hosting a co-volunteer project for United Way’s Born Learning trail at Jackson Park with Tom Wood Honda. That day lead to a new partnership with Tom Wood that directly benefits and empowers Thrive clients and their transportation needs. His encouragement also led to a new campaign for United Way at NTK.

The Rise to the Challenge award is in recognition of those businesses and organizations that met a tremendous challenge – either running a new campaign or increasing the number of employees giving by at least 5% over last year. And thanks to their efforts, these 11 organizations alone enabled us to claim over $70,000 in match dollars this year.
