We are pleased to announce that our corporate gift combined with our team members’ personal pledges and donations totaled $140,000 to support United Way of Dane County in 2020.
“United Way of Dane County is an integral member of our community and an organization NGL is proud to support. Through its strategic partnerships and collaborative efforts, United Way is connecting people to valuable resources, which strengthens our community and leads to better outcomes for everyone,” said Knut Olson, NGL President & CEO.
For more than 70 years NGL has proudly partnered with and supported United Way of Dane County. Funding to United Way of Dane County is focused on the areas of education, income and health with the goals to help build a community where everyone can succeed in school, work and life.
In addition to NGL’s corporate donation of $70,000 and employee payroll deductions, employees generously donate through fundraising events. Each year, the NGL employee campaign incorporates a variety of activities to donate to and participate in. This year we had to create virtual employee fundraisers, including bingo, paint night, trivia nights, blind auction and a fitness challenge.
“This has been a challenging and unpredictable year for everyone. It is so inspiring to witness our team members come together, virtually, to give back and make a difference in our communities. Each person who donated, volunteered and participated in the activities we offered helped to make our campaign so successful. I’m honored to work with compassionate people who treat others with care and kindness, especially during these difficult times,” said Jessica Grann, NGL Vice President, Chief Culture and Communications Officer. “I would also like to extend our deep appreciation to United Way for helping us organize and coordinate our annual campaign. Their ideas and guidance made it easy for us to transition to a virtual campaign.”
