LifeSpan Employees Give Back
"We are so proud of the staff- they really excelled this year." That was said with great pride by David Mancuso, Director of Development and Community Relations for LifeSpan. He said two nearly back-to-back campaigns asked for donations from staff and their generosity showed.
The first campaign was for LifeSpan itself, the second for United Way. The internal campaign is the kick start for LifeSpan's Annual Campaign and was a great success.
"Seeing how much our staff believes in the organization gives us strength as we begin our external Annual Campaign," Mancuso said.
The United Way asked LifeSpan to be a Pacesetter for its annual campaign several years ago. This means LifeSpan completes its United Way campaign about one month prior to other organizations, acting as a springboard to success.
As part of the campaign, employees who donated participated in a silent auction for baked goods and even had a pancake breakfast courtesy of CEO Bill Staler, David Mancuso, Director of Development and Community Relations, Catherine Bidleman, CFO and Mag Baker of the Butler County YMCA. Our campaign success was in part to the great leadership of our United Way Campaign co-chairs, Donna Green and Catherine Bidleman.
"This campaign almost immediately followed our own internal kick start for LifeSpan's Annual Campaign, but that did not hinder the success," Mancuso said.
With just under 80% contributing to at least one campaign and most contributing to both directly from their paychecks, the results speak to the passion LifeSpan employees have for non-profit organizations.
