1 Welcome to United WayGREAT RIVERSGreat InnovationsTWENTY FIFTEEN
2 ObjectivesExplain the mission, vision and business model of United WaySummarize each of the organization capacities that are important for achieving our business model (community impact, resource development, communications, volunteer engagement, board development, etc.)Describe the critical issues that United Ways faceRespond to questions about United Way and the United Way network
3 United Way’s Vision and Mission Create Opportunity For AllMissionUnited Ways Build Stronger CommunitiesOur Value PropositionWe see the big picture and work to create comprehensive solutionsWe engage all sectors/citizens/stakeholders to act to address community needsWe optimize outcomes by focusing on what works, aligning efforts, and mobilizing resourcesPJThe UW network’s mission, vision, and core values drive how we work.They bring us together and help us operate as a single face to the community.As a network we have a common mission, vision, and core values. These statements bring us together and help us operate as one organization.The mission of the United Way is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good. United Way is in the business of creating lasting change in community conditions that improve lives in each and every community. It is not how many individuals we provide for and serve. It is not how many programs we fund or partners we unite. What matters is: The bottom line results, the lives we change, and the communities we shape.To do this we will:Ignite a worldwide social movement, and thereby mobilize millions to action—to give, advocate and volunteer to improve the conditions in which they live.Galvanize and connect all sectors of society—individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments—to create long-term social change that produces healthy, well-educated and financially-stable individuals and families.Raise, invest and leverage billions of dollars annually in philanthropic contributions to create and support innovative programs and approaches to generate sustained impact in local communities.Hold ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure—in real terms—improvement in education, income and health.Engage and include diverse segments of our communities. Diversity is the quality of being different or unique at the individual group level. Inclusion is a strategy to leverage diversity.

The difference between the two is simply that State Organizations are staffed and separately incorporated and State Associations are not staffed. While State Organizations/Associations do not pay dues to UWW, they are certified through our membership accountability process and licensed to use the United Way brand.As of January 20137
8 Challenges Donor Loss Local Pressures Capacity Alignment Trust MTWhile we begin with a unique base of network assets, they are continually challenged by a very difficult environment. I know these six areas affect every one of you on a daily basis. As a network, we’ve lost roughly 17% of our donors between 2007 and Competition, evolving donor interests, and technology compound this challenge.TrustCompetition
9 Our past…our present A fundraising organization A community impact organizationFunding the needs of agencies and programsInvesting in strategies for community changeSole focus on program outcomesUltimate focus on community outcomesDonor or giverCommunity investorLocally-orientedBoth locally and system-orientedMTWith our assets and challenges, we have existed for 127 years as a network of nearly 1,800 independent United Ways. We were the fundraising organization, the creator of the workplace campaign. We funded the needs of agencies and programs with locally oriented individuals with a focus on program outcomes. That is no longer the world we exist in.We’re moving from a strictly fundraising organization to a community impact organizationFrom funding the needs of agencies and programs to investing in strategies for community changeFrom sole focus on program outcomes to ultimate focus on community outcomesFrom donor or grant-maker to community investorFrom locally oriented to both locally and system-orientedThe value that United Way can bring to communities is what can differentiate us in the minds of investors: Bring organizations, people and resources together to focus on critical issues; Help achieve progress on community issues through collaborative, coordinated efforts; So how do we do this?
10 United Way Organizational Capacities PolicyandAdvocacyCommunity EngagementCommunityImpact(Education, Financial Stability, Health)United WayOrganizationalCapacitiesIndividual &Volunteer Engagement (Give, Advocate, Volunteer)Strengtheningmulti-sectorpartners andcollaborationsResourceDevelopmentMarketingandCommunicationsMTAs United Ways across the country have worked on implementing the business model, we’ve seen that certain capacities are foundational for success.There are the capacities around the business model that position us to mobilize our communities – individuals and organizations, grassroots and grass tops – to collaborate in building and implementing strategies for community change.Every one of the capacities plays an important role in executing on the United Way Business Model.AT SOME POINT AT/AROUND THIS TIME THERE WILL LIKELY BE A CAMEO PRESENTATION FROM UWW COO, JOE HAGGERTY (15 MINUTES). Biographies for UWW CEO Brian Gallagher & Stacey Stewart are in their Participant Guides. Transition: Given all you’ve just heard about our history and our business model, we’ll dive into an interactive activity that really illustrates the importance of aligning our work.

16 Business Performance Matrix PJMembership accountability leads us straight into the Business Performance Matrix. How many are familiar with BPM?
17 Business Performance Matrix Placement on Y-axis is relatively fixed year-to-year Population ≥ 1 million people4321Fortune 500/GCL* company HQ or≥ 12 GCL companiesNo Fortune 500/GCL company HQ and <12 GCL companiesFull-time staff member < 1PJY-axis/number measures the resources, capacity, and influence of a UW.Y-axis was developed to be mostly static. The numeric designation is unlikely to change.The segmentation criteria are based on three primary factors.Capacity: Do you have the staff to assimilate new services, supports and work in your community? Capacity to execute the full business model presents a unique set of challenges to UWs with no staff or only a part-time staff person. These UWs are classified as 1’sPopulation: On the other end of the spectrum, UWs working with large populations have needs/challenges on a different scale, but have access to more staff, capacity, and resources. UWs with a service area that covers 1 million+ people are classified as 4’s1M cutoff = 57 UWs and ~1/2 of US populationResources/Corporate Presence: The UWs in between are divided by corporate presence. A UW is a 3 if its service area contains one or more of the following:1) A Fortune 500 or Global Corporate Leadership headquarters2) 12+ unique Global Corporate Leadership locationsIf your community contains no HQ and fewer than 12 GCL companies, your UW is classified as a 2These criteria were chosen based upon statistical analysis of factors that represent key drivers of growth for UW.Resources/Capacity/Influence*GCL = Global Corporate Leadership – United Way Worldwide’s Corporate Relations Program
18 Business Performance Index (BPI) Business Performance Matrix United Ways will show movement/progress on X-axisAn “A” is either focused on the traditional model or making progress on some aspects of United Way’s business modelABC0-4950-7475-100A “B” is either making substantial progress on some aspects of the business model or showing overall progressA “C” is showing substantial overall progress on the business model but with room to growPJNow let’s take a look at the X-axis. This indicates how a United Way is progressing on implementing the United Way business model. Again, it is completely measured from self-reported data gathered through the Community Impact Practices Survey (CIPS) and Database 2. A’s, which show up as the blue column on the Matrix, may be traditional-leaning organizations operating a strictly fundraising/allocation model… all the way to organizations that have made concrete steps toward leading change, deepening engagement opportunities and developing community change strategies. Ex. a United Way not yet ready to choose one or more community priorities for targeted actionB’s, which are highlighted red, are moving along the Business Performance pathway, doing well on many, but not all skills and behaviors related to the business model – successful in some, but with room for improvement. Ex. UW might have chosen to work on a community priority, but needs more info on issue or hasn’t yet set targeted community outcomes (or done so without partners)C’s, shown as gold, are United Ways that are beginning to achieve real momentum in the new business model – but certainly still have lots of room for improvement. Probably, you could put a D on this chart at some point. Ex. UW might have a full CI plan and strategies co-created with partners, backed by resources needed to do itFully transitioning from a traditional fundraising and allocations model to a fully integrated model that exhibits the practices outlined in the Business Performance Index (while still including program investments) is a process. United Ways have been built up for a number of years to not only operate the traditional model, but to do it with excellence. Reorganizing and realigning your organization, engaging the community and your board, developing shared strategies and metrics across the community, and tying it to your resource development is a multi-year process and journey. Realistically, the majority of our network is still in the early to middle stages of this journey, and this axis is meant to help you connect with folks who are at a similar place on that path.Business Performance Index (BPI)
19 Introducing… The Business Performance Overview Performance Dashboard Business Performance Index ProfileCommunity Impact SnapshotGeneral ResourcesPJIn 2013 and year two of Business Performance Matrix implementation, United Way Worldwide was pleased to expand the report-back of data in a Business Performance Overview.This was developed by a field-led team and is meant to give United Ways a more holistic look at how they are performing.This is a great tool for educating boards and staff, and also for strategic planning.
20 GIVE. United Way Fundraising PJ (45 minutes)We’ll spend this next period of time exploring our sources of revenue including Workplace Campaigns, GCL and donor development.

The flow of this GIVE section will be related to these topics.
22 Sources of Current Year Support Revenue Contributions Beyond Campaign: 14.5%Includes:Government grants – 6.8%Restricted Gifts from Ind/Fdn/Corp. – 4.1%Outright gifts to endow. fund – 0.2%Bequests – 0.6%Other planned gifts – 0.9%Corporate sponsorships/Sp.

24 Leadership and Major Giving PJMost United Ways have been successful in diversifying their revenue generation through Leadership/Major Giving and Planned Giving.
25 Engagement Works: Affinity Group Giving Growing Exponentially WomenCumulative % Growth since 2004All Affinity GroupsYoung LeadersPJAffinity group giving continues to outpace the giving rates for individuals overall.
26 What is a Leadership Giving and Tocqueville Program? Leadership Giving Defined by your United Way based on annual gift… could be $1,000 entry point… could be $1,200 entry point… could be $5,000 entry point… Tocqueville Society Generally at the $10,000 level or above These programs are designed to give special thanks and recognition to donors who give at the determined “leadership” levels.PJFirst let us define for you what we mean by Leadership donors and Major donors here at United Way. Read slide
27 Leadership and Major Giving Cumulative Growth Comparisons (% Increase since 2003) PJAs you can see from this slide, not all donor segments are declining. The top line tracks major giving, our Tocqueville Society members. As you can see, Leadership & Major Giving have increased significantly over the past 10 years. For comparison, the annual campaign has declined over this period.
28 Continuum – how we recruit and grow our donors’ gifts Workplace campaign Leadership gift (including affinity groups) Major gifts (Tocqueville Society) Planned gift (bequests/estate gifts)PJWhile the campaign is trending downward, it still represents the largest vehicle for reaching current and potential donors of any non-profit organization in the world. Each year, United Way is presented to over 50,000,000 people? This is and will be our primary source of donor solicitations.From there, we can grow the number and size of our donors’ gifts. We can access donors and solicit them for a Leadership Level gift or cultivate them to grow their gift over time to the Leadership level.From there, we can continue to cultivate them to become Major Donors (or Tocqueville Society members).Finally, we can solicit them to make a planned gift. We can ask them to consider including United Way in their wills or estate plans.By moving people up the spectrum, we are increasing their Lifetime Donor Value.
29 Planned GivingA Technique For Giving Assets (Payroll Deduction Is A Technique For Giving Income) Three Types Of Planned Gifts: — Outright Gifts Of Appreciated Assets (e.g., stock) — Bequests (Wills, Retirement Plans, Life Insurance) — Split Interest (Charitable Gift Annuity, Trusts)PJThe last giving area we want to share with you is planned giving. Planned giving is a way donors can give their assets (stocks, retirement plans, gifts of life insurance and simple bequests in their wills) to United. Most of these gifts are “deferred” – come to United Way when they pass away. They represent incredible revenue potential for us.
30 The Pyramid of Donor Service Offer engagement1-on-1 relationshipPrincipal donorUltimate ServiceContinuously Deepen RelationshipSegment based on interestAdvanced ServiceBuild Relationship & LoyaltyLearn donor interestSegment based on demographicsEducate impact of givingBasic ServiceEstablish RelationshipAcknowledge and thank youPJUSE ARROWThis pyramid summarizes what we have been talking about. The three vertical pillars break down donors into 3 categories – those for whom we know their interests (these may or may not have donated to us), those who give to us but we do not know their level of interest or specific interest area. And those who give to us at a higher giving level (or length of time as for Loyal Contributors). We may or may not know their specific interest level but do know that they are particularly bonded to United Way. Regardless of how/why they came to us, we need to obtain their contact information, thank them and inform them about the impact of their gift in a timely way. We need to do the Basics in terms of customer service.“Advanced” activities are for those who have a particular interest or giving potential for our work. We need to build relationships with them and gain their loyalty.The “Ultimate” group of high-potential donors need to be continuously nurtured.Names, contact and

53 Why Change Dues Formula? Current methodology doesn’t align with business/community impact modelCurrent formula does not include diversified revenue streams (i.e. grants, endowments, etc.)UWW staff support and brand equity utilized to secure diversified revenue streamsDecreasing local campaigns has resulted in decreased dues revenueFlex credits will increase proportionallyEmerging growth strategies require additional funding supportSupport of strategic initiatives (Bold Plays)Last increase was 10 years ago. Not sustainable.In 2013, membership support represented 36% of UWW revenue (vs. 52% of revenue in 2005)In 2015, UWW will utilize $4M of cash reserves to provide Bold Play seed funding

61 Telling our story Communicating United Way's story effectively can: Raise visibilityBoost credibilityDeepen connections with donorsHelp engage new supporters...And drive lasting change in our communityGood story-telling is part of making a differencePJHow we communicate who we are – and what we do – goes a long way in engaging people in our work. How we talk to donors, partners, volunteers, policymakers etc. is critical. It defines who we are – and how well we can execute our collective charge of community change.
62 But most people think we’re about … money FundraiserPass-throughHelp the needy (“other people”)A lot of the messaging is around the results of the annual campaign and you don’t hear anything more until the next campaign.Corporate partnerPJHere’s what our donors think….Even our biggest champions tend to see UW as being about dollars. If all we are is a pass through, it begs the question "Why bother giving to UW rather than giving to an organization directly?"So we’ve got to reframe. The dollars are not the goal, they are the means to an end – the end being community change in education, income and health.We’ve tried things like ‘convener’ or ‘facilitator’ or ‘unite diverse interests’ - but that is too passive. We want to be seen as a player at (or leading) the table – not the table itself!87
63 Old story (charity) New story (change) We have problems to fix Support United WayJust ask for dollarsTalk about “programs”Struggling peopleComplexHelp the needyWe are fixing problemsSupport our communityCreate connectionsTalk about successesCommunity conditionsCommon senseBe part of something greaterPJWhat to say…and not to say.

69 Why Education, Income and Health? MTWhy Education, Income and Health?Our work is critical because for many millions of hard-working families, the basic ingredients for a good life are increasingly beyond reach.These statistics speak for themselves.The research behind these statistics is even grimmer. For example, the key indicator of financial stability is the percentage of family income spent on housing. If you spend more than 40% of your income on housing, that’s considered financially unstable. But today, more than one-third of America’s working families are spending more than that.When you factor in that prior to Affordable Healthcare, more than 50 million Americans lacked health insurance, you can see the tightrope that too many people are walking.
