2015 United Way of Defiance County Campaign
(Board President, Mark Ferris with Defiance College mascot, Buzz)
The 2015 campaign came to a close at the end of February 2016. Thank you to all of our community who helped us raise $278,000 on a goal of $286,000. We reached 97 percent of our goal, and we had an increase in total campaign funds raised by 6.7 percent to last year. Our campaign success would not be possible without the support of our Top 10 Company Employee Campaigns that helped us raise 47 percent of the total 2015 campaign. Thank you to these companies for their support and to their incredible employees investing in the community where they work or live. Thank you Defiance City Schools, Defiance College, Employees of Defiance County, First Federal Bank, General Motors Defiance, Meijer, Inc. Store #189, Mercy Health, ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital, Shultz Huber & Associates, Inc., and State Bank.
Thank you also to our generous Leadership Donors that helped us raise 34 percent of our 2015 campaign this year.
