United Way Establishes Council On Philanthropy

Sponsored Content provided by Chris Nelson - President, United Way of the Cape Fear Area

The United Way of the Cape Fear Area has instituted a new initiative that will benefit more citizens of the greater Wilmington area – the United Way Council on Philanthropy.
 
While it is common for most donors to make charitable gifts through their work, it is becoming more commonplace for donors such as retirees to look for financial opportunities outside of work as well. Many are looking for ways to give back to their local communities and are choosing vehicles such as estate planning, planned gifts, trusts and inclusions in their wills.
 
United Way of the Cape Fear Area recent published statistics that show that more than 11,000 children and their parents, last year alone, were were helped by the United Way and were empowered to learn, stay in school and prepare for higher education in the Cape Fear area. In addition, more than 59,000 individuals and families were helped out of crisis and into a more stable environment. The philanthropic commitments of more community citizens will enable the United Way to enlarge its Community Impact Fund, which is designed to serve more citizens in need.
 
True to the United Way volunteer tradition, a group of outstanding professionals now comprise the new United Way Council on Philanthropy. These experts will assist the United Way in developing the kind of planned gifts that will enable the United Way, now and in the long term, to fund more community human service programs that address the most critical needs of those who live and work in the Cape Fear area.
