The Reynolds American 2015 United Way campaign reached nearly $2.6 million in donations, a record performance for a corporate campaign for United Way of Forsyth County. This outstanding performance is attributable to the generosity of Reynolds American employees and retirees, plus the support of The Reynolds American Foundation. This year the Reynolds American Foundation supported the campaign in multiple ways:
· Matching all employee contributions dollar for dollar
· Providing an incentive totaling $50,000 for Business Units to increase their giving by +10% vs. last year in either donors or dollars
· Aiding the overall Community Campaign effort by providing matching funds for any new corporate or employee campaigns secured this year by United Way of Forsyth County.
The theme for this year’s campaign at Reynolds American was “Working Wonders Together” and certainly the generous performance on this year’s campaign at Reynolds American will allow United Way to “work wonders” in continuing to develop integrated solutions to issues in the community.
Additionally, Reynolds American executives supported United Way by playing a significant part in this year’s United Way Community Campaign. Tommy Payne, President of Niconovum at Reynolds American, served as the Chairman of the Community Campaign and five others served on the Campaign Cabinet.
United Way of Forsyth County wishes to thank all the employees of Reynolds American and The Reynolds American Foundation for their partnership and continued support of our efforts.
