Shallotte Woman Leads Cape Fear United Wav
Polly Russ of Shallotie will head the Cape
Fear Area United Way this year.
Russ, who owns and operates a local child
care center and serves on the
Brunswick County Board of
Education, was elected at the
three-county agency's annual
meeting last Thursday. She
served as prcsident-eleci dur
"It will be a busy year,"
Russ said Tuesday. "It's al
Her election comes at a
time when Cape Fear Area
United Way is taking a fresh look at how it oper
ates and both its expectations of donors and mem
ber agencies and their expectations of it.
Among her long-range organizational goals
arc to find ways to identify new and more diverse
sources of volunteers and involve them in every
thing United Way does, and to determine the best
way to reach a large potential group of donors, re
tirees, that "arc not in the system."
"If they are not in a business or corporation
no one is asking them to give," she said. "We
need to determine the best way to reach them,
whether it is through neighborhood campaigns,
civic groups, whatever is needed." Many of this
target group gave regularly to United Way during
their careers and will still feel good about giving
to a united campaign.
At a statewide United Way meeting in late
January, Russ said she was interested to see how
local United Way agencies are perceived in rela
tion to the national United Way and the manage
ment scandal that rocked its operations last year.
"Wc all suffered because of that scandal," she
said. "But it is over.
"Studies show it was a major reason why peo
ple chose to give less last year," she continued.
"Of course the economy was also a factor, not
just here, but nationwide."
Like many of its fellow agencies nationwide.
Cape Fear United Way fell short of its goal dur
ing the 1992 campaign, raising SI.6 million to
distribute among 23 member agencies plus two
programs its operates. The agency also con
tributes to 14 non-member state and local agen
cies. Organizers said they were pleased with the
campaign outcome, given the circumstances.
As an organization, she said, the local United
Way needs to face several facts: that donors are
smarter and know more, and they want account
ability from the charities they support.
"Cape Fear Area United Way has never had a
problem with accountability, but maybe we need
to tell our story better. Wc need to convince peo
ple that this is the best way to give, the charity of
choice: that is a way to give to smaller, less visi
ble agencies that cannot afford fundraising cam
paigns and that it helps reduce agencies* reliance
on other fundraising efforts."
United Way requires annual Financial audits
of its member agencies and also uses teams of
volunteers to conduct annual reviews of programs
that receive United Way support
"We fund programs, not necessarily an entire
agency, and we look at the programs we arc fund
ing. It's not a process intended to tear an agency
apart, but we look to see if they are providing the
services they say they are."
In a move that begins the year, the United
Way will make a stronger effort to prioritize its
allocations to better meet the needs identified as
most important by residents of Brunswick, Pender
and New Hanover countics in a survey conducted
this past year. If a need has been identified, such
as infant mortality or teenage pregnancy, that a
member agency is not addressing, the United
Way may choose to make a one-time grant to a
non-member agency that is addressing it.
In Brunswick County responden's ranked un
employment as the greatest human service need,
followed by related economic, health care and ed
ucation and training issues. These included the
need for entry-level positions with benefits such
as health insurance, health care for the poor, af
fordable health care, medical services and dental
care, job training and literacy training.
Respondents cited lack of transportation and
lack of information about available services as the
chief barriers to using existing human services in
