So many great things happen when you give!
Zimbrick is pleased to share the results of our 2012 United Way of Dane County campaign with you. It was a tremendous success. Zimbrick was sixth in Dane County for Total Employee and Corporate Giving. The company exceeded its goal set at the beginning of the capital campaign, and it set a new record for the company.
In addition to this milestone, Zimbrick also took home a number of awards from United Way of Dane County:
- Best Practices Award – presented to organizations that execute all of the Best Practices strategies and have an overall increase in giving
- Platinum Award – presented to organizations with employee gifts averaging between $250 or more per employee
- Community Impact Award – presented to organizations that have the largest total of employee and corporate giving
- Employee Engagement Award – presented to organizations with the highest percent participation in an employee campaign
This was also the first year that Zimbrick received the Innovation Award, which celebrates their commitment to raising awareness and resources during the campaign. Zimbrick found ways to increase Leadership Giving participation, retention and donor support needed to advance the community’s Agenda for Change.
Zimbrick utilized one of their key resources – their people – when preparing for the 2012 campaign. General manager Kendall Dahmen put together a team to assist him with the many tasks required to create innovative campaign. Among those tasks – a company softball game at Warner Park (home of the Madison Mallards), a company Texas Hold’em poker tournament, a golf outing, t-shirt sales, jeans days, tailgate lunches, and a partnership with local restaurants.
Most importantly, Zimbrick and its employees are happy to contribute to the betterment of our community!
