United Way's 13thAnnual State of the Community luncheon is fast approaching with less thana month until the big day on Thursday, June 25th. Each year, hundreds of peoplefrom all spheres of our community including businesses, nonprofits, community organizations, government entities and community members gather together to bring light to prevalent issues in Larimer County and to celebrate people making a difference.
Why should you come?
Have you ever thought about how everyone is expected to “make it on their own” or how it often feels like you need to work against the system to accomplish what's needed? Have you ever wondered if there is a better, more effective way?
Bill Fulton, Founder and Executive Director of The Civic Canopy, will present the case for what it would take to transform the way our systems work so that they are focused on every person thriving, rather than expecting each person to make it on his or her own and often having to work against the system in his keynote address From Beating the Odds to Changing the Game: Working Together For Systemic Change.
2. It's one of the largest gatherings of people and organizations in Northern Colorado.
With hundreds of attendees, United Way's State of the Community Luncheon is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch up with old friends and colleagues, and network with other business and nonprofit professionals. Last year, over 800 people joined us, and this year we are slated to have even more!
This year's State of the Community spotlights how United Way of Larimer County'sColorado Reading Corpsprogram, an innovative partnership with Thompson School District, helps local kids succeed in school. You will hear firsthand the difference these volunteers and mentors are making in hundreds of students' lives and how it's impacting their futures.
4. See how Intel is one of Larimer County's leaders in Corporate Social Responsibility.
Since 2005, Intel has been a huge part of the Larimer County community. Not only have they generated millions of dollars in support of United Way's work, but they have also given countless volunteer hours to organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Food Bank for Larimer County,and our natural areas. In this year's Corporate Champion Spotlight, you will get a glimpse into all that Intel does for our community.
