THANK YOU
United Way of Portage County initiated the Stevens
Society in 1984 to recognize leadership level donors
of $500 or more in a given year.
HOW THIS MONEY IS USED
• Helping Portage County rise above challenges to
reach its full potential.
• Focused on Education, Income, Health, and Community Basics.
• Provides an umbrella of protection to our community’s most vulnerable populations.
• Resources are aligned with the greatest needs.
• Community residents, not staff, make decisions
on how funds are allocated and monitor program
outcomes.
• Every donation has a broad impact; each one
counts.
• 99% of the money raised here stays here.
• Everyone has something to
offer.
The dedicated work of
the various United Way
programs is in line with
my goal of not only helping
others now, but also providing the tools for them
to help themselves for
the rest of their lives.

YOUR GIFT HELPS THIS
COMMUNITY
HOW THIS MONEY IS USED
United Way of Portage County works to advance
the common good by focusing on the building
blocks for a good life — Education, Income, Health,
and Community Basics.
United Way recruits the people and organizations
who bring the passion, expertise and resources
needed to get things done. We invite you to be a
part of the change by giving and volunteering.
We’re committed to learning more about people’s
aspirations and what kind of community they want
to live in. This is important work, creating the
framework for making community decisions and
convening the community in a shared purpose.

Alexis de Tocqueville was a French aristocrat
who admired the voluntary spirit of American
society. His observations
formed the 1835 work
“Democracy in America,”
a detailed study of
American society, culture
and politics.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Perhaps his most important observation was that Americans helped
one another in times of need. He recognized,
applauded and immortalized the volunteer
spirit that lives in an American’s heart.
Today, more than ever, we need leaders to
step up and become Tocqueville Society
members. Your annual gift of $10,000 or
more to United Way of Portage County will
set an example for others to follow.
I give at the Stevens Society
level because everyone
deserves the opportunity to
have a good life, which
includes a quality education,
income to support a family,
and good health.

I am a firm believer in pay it forward. It’s
a concept everybody should embrace.
I was helped when I had nothing, and
if I can pay it forward to someone else,
that’s what keeps the world moving.

successful formula: efficiency + donations
used for local needs + programs that help
the most vulnerable + it addresses root
causes of problems = a better community
for us all.

30 YEARS OF THE
STEVENS SOCIETY
2014 celebrates the 30-year anniversary of the Stevens Society,
United Way of Portage County’s
leadership giving program.
The Stevens Society formed
in 1984 under the leadership
of Don Peters and Jim Ford.
Stevens Society members are
leadership level donors of $500
or more in a given year.
Since its inception, Tina Peters,
Don’s wife, has chaired the
Stevens Society for the majority
of the past 30 years, with the
help of many other individuals
including current co-chair Marg
Coker-Nelson.
2013 marked the first year
Stevens Society contributors
exceeded the $1
million threshold
for a single year
from 935 generous donors.
Giving back at the Stevens
Society level is a way to
achieve tangible results
in an effort to develop a
stronger community. We
give back to help advance
the common good for
everyone.

UNITED WAY
ENDOWMENT
Most of us give time, talents, and money to
charitable organizations during our lives because
it makes a difference for someone else. We
experience the joy that comes from giving to an
organization that puts into action our values and
priorities. Through a legacy gift, you can make a
difference — now and forever. Through the United
Way Endowment, United Way of Portage County
offers more ways to make a lasting and valuable
contribution to the future of the community.
UNITED WAY ENDOWMENT
The United Way Endowment exists to accommodate the wishes of people who make
planned gifts to United Way of Portage County.
A planned gift is a deferred gift, meaning it is
arranged now and fulfilled later, often according to bequests in wills. Participation in the
Endowment will enable donors to continue their
tradition of caring and prepares United Way to
address the pressing issues yet to come.
Donors also receive satisfaction in supporting the causes they care deeply about, receive
immediate and future tax benefits, benefit the
entire community, and become an example for
others to follow. This act of giving to United
Way provides the intangible reward of knowing
lives and the conditions in the community will
continue to be improved.
United Way of Portage County is dedicated to
finding the most efficient, personally satisfying and financially advantageous method for
each donor to make his or her contribution.
Your legal or financial advisor can guide you in
choosing a gift that fulfills your needs, provides
maximum tax benefits, and does the most good
for others. Giving options include bequests,
securities, gifts of property, life income gifts,
life insurance, and cash gifts.
How will you be remembered?
HOW ARE DOLLARS BEING REINVESTED INTO THE COMMUNITY?
In 2012, United Way of Portage County started using the earnings from the Endowment
for community projects that align with United
Way’s areas of emphasis: Education, Income,
Health, and Community Basics. $5,400 was
allocated to Ignite, United Way’s emerging
leaders group, to build a Born Learning Trail
at Mead Park in Stevens Point.
In 2013, the United Way Endowment
Committee and Board approved funding of
$2,500 for United Way of Portage County’s
first-ever No Child’s Wet Behind Community
Diaper Drive to purchase diapers and $5,000
for Project Fresh Start to purchase school
supplies. Both the diapers and school supplies were distributed to the community’s
most vulnerable populations as a way to fill
an identified need in Portage County.
