Hutchinson County United Way
2016 Annual Report

                This year has been a very successful year for Hutchinson County United Way. We have made several advances towards our goal of helping cycle people out of poverty (whether generational or situational poverty) through education. Our fundraising efforts are seeing the benefit of our new initiative as well.

                Hutchinson County United Way raised $664,061.09 in pledges for the 2015/16 Campaign year; $610,758.02 has actually been received as of March 9, 2017. Donations will be received until March 31, 2016 when the campaign cycle closes. This campaign year was slightly down due to the drop in our oilfield economy.

                With these funds, we were able to continue to meet the needs of our 16 Partner Agencies, help the elderly and disabled through our Day of Caring, as well as partner in new ways with our local school districts. In August, we held a Back to School Fair for Borger ISD. Approximately 600 students attended our event. We were able to provide school supplies, hygiene products, haircuts, athletic physicals, dental screening, ID Kits, shoes, clothing, anything else that might ease the burden of expense that comes with the start of school. Board Member Theron Baker and Executive Director Julie Winters attended the following school board meeting. One of the principals stated that this year was the easiest school starts he had seen. He attributed the Back to School Fair as one of the reasons for this ease in the first week of school. Even though Fritch and Stinnett were not able to provide the Fair for their communities, we provided school supplies to those students who needed them.

                S-Fritch ISD also took advantage of our partnership in helping with tuition for concurrent classes. The more college credits our high school students take, the more likely they will be to acquire a college education which should allow them to earn a living wage salary.

                This year’s funding was distributed to 16 Program Providers, four other Non-Profit Organizations in our county, and designations to one other United Way in the area. Part of our funding also went towards our new Education Initiative. Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged. Disbursements for 2016 were as follows:

Best Campaign Ever! Best Community to live in! With a difficult previous year, our goal remained at $655,000. With the economy bouncing back, our Campaign also bounced back like never before. We raise $761,080. Thank you to the generous donors of Hutchinson County. Contributions came from 30 workplace rallies, 41 businesses and 30 individuals from within our community.

                Our Kick Off Cook Off was held on September 17, 2016. The event was held in the front parking lot of Amarillo National Bank, Borger Branch & to the side of the building in the Phillips Building parking lot. Nineteen cook teams entered four categories: Ribs, Brisket, Pork Butt & other. The event was held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and had around 550 attendees. Guests enjoyed delicious B-B-Q while learning about the services provided by our Partner Agencies. Everyone enjoyed the day.

                This year’s Day of Caring was held on April 30, 2016. There were 175 adult volunteers & 175 Borger High School Students that helped in 53 homes of our elderly and disabled. They did yard work, tree trimming, painting, and small repairs. It was a very rainy Saturday, so many volunteers chose to complete the project on the following weekend.

                Can’t wait to see what this year holds for Hutchinson County United Way!

 


Hutchinson County United Way
2015 Annual Report

            This year Hutchinson County United Way continued to strengthen their new Education Initiative.  Throughout the year we educated our community about our new initiative by continually having conversations with our Partner Agencies and our donors while sharing and listening. As we move forward our goal is to help cycle people out of poverty (whether generational or situational poverty) through education.

            Hutchinson County United Way raised $687,089.28 in pledges for the 2014/15 Campaign year; $642.533.08 has actually been received as of February 29, 2016.  Donations are still expected to be received in March.  This was the most raised per capita and per employee of all United Ways in the State of Texas.     

            In 2015 HCUW initiated two policy changes which affected the process of funding distribution to our Program Providers.  In years past, the annual allocations to the Program Providers had been distributed in five equal payments throughout the year and designated fund distributed in four equal payments throughout the year.  Since the majority of our campaign funds are given through payroll deduct, we have created a fund distribution cycle that allows more pledges to come in before the allocations are being paid out.  Allocations and designated funds are now paid out in four equal payments.  HCUW is also changing our fiscal year which changes the first payment to the Program Provides to April instead of January.  With these two changes, we gave a bonus allocation to each agency to make this transition as easy as possible to prevent any provided services provided being disrupted.

This is the last year of our Community Focus Grant Application.  HCUW is implementing another policy change which allows us to partner with our schools to help fight our war on poverty though Education.  In 2016, funding can be requested through our normal Funding Application.

            This year's funding was distributed to 14 Program Providers, two other Non-Profit Organizations in our county, and designations to three other United Ways in the area.  Part of our funding also went towards our new Education Initiative.  Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged.  Disbursements for 2015 were as follows:

Hutchinson County United Way 2015 Program Providers Allocation
Biblical Wellness Center$36,000.00
Borger Area Learning Center$44,810.00

Hutchinson County United Way 
2014 Annual Report

            This year brought many challenges to our county.  A fire swept through a community in Fritch which took 125 family dwellings.  A Relief Committee was put together with major leadership from the community helping our efforts.  Donations from inside and outside the county were received for the fire victims totalling $660,000. HCUW also contributed $50,000.  To date $708,291.96 of the $710,000 has been spent to help 60 families who suffered loss in the fire to get back into permanent housing. 

            Before the Fire, HCUW had the opportunity to bring in Dr. Donna Beagle, Communications Across Barriers, and Dr. Damen Lopez, No Excuses University, as we continue to work into our Education Initiative.  Dr. Beagle brought education to over 100 people in the community on how to work with and understand people living in poverty.  Dr. Lopez spoke with many people in the community as well as representatives from the 3 school districts concerning his program which says that it is the community’s responsibility to make sure that every child has the opportunity to receive an education that will allow him to make a living wage as an adult. HCUW was able to help sponsor 25 educators from Fritch ISD, PSPC ISD, and Buttercup to attend an NEU workshop.  All three groups returned and are in process of implementing this program into their schools.

            Hutchinson County United Way received $674,744.66 in pledges for the 2013/14 Campaign year.  This was the most raised per capita and per employee of all United Ways in the State of Texas.  $606,712.76 has actually been received as of February 28, 2015.   Donations will continue to come in.  

            For 2014, allocations were as usual.  Every May, all Hutchinson County Non Profit  Organizations have the opportunity to apply for funding to be given out in the following year.  Organizations also have an opportunity for funding through our Community Focus Grant Program.  This program provides funding outside the traditional allocation process and is a structured process to award any possible excess funds.   This structure will change for 2015 as we move into our Education Initiative of our Community Impact Work.

            This year's funding was distributed to 13 Program Providers, six other Non-Profit Organizations in our county and designations to two other United Ways in the area.  Part of our funding also went towards our new Education Initiative.  Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged.  Disbursements for 2013 were as follows:

Hutchinson County United Way
2013 Annual Report

            HCUW decided in 2013  to move in an exciting new direction that seeks to address some of the root causes of many of the biggest issues that hold people back from becoming self-sufficient, thriving citizens of Hutchinson County.  The direction is called "Community Impact" and is intended to permanently treat the causes of poverty, drug abuse, violence, lack of education, joblessness, etc. instead of just temporarily treating the symptoms.  We will begin implementing this transition in 2014 at the agencies begin asking for 2015 funding requests.

            This year's Day of Caring was held on April 27, 2013.  There were 325+ volunteers that helped in 450 homes of our elderly and disabled. They did yard work, trim trimming, painting, and small repairs.  This shows how caring our community is, for people to give of their time to help out their neighbors.

            This year the Borger High School Senior Class volunteered on the Friday before Day of Caring to begin prep work at 10 different jobs.  It was exciting to see our young adults helping meets the needs of people in our community.  This made a huge impact on the students and School Personnel that helped that day.  We are happy to say that this year's Borger High Senior Class will be partnering with us again.
