A message from our President.
 

  

Living in Barrington for over 25 years, I have had the opportunity to witness many of the wonderful philanthropic groups in our area.   One stood out amongst the rest, and that is the Barrington Area United Way.  

After joining the board in 2010, I have served in the capacity of the Youth Board Advisor and Emcee of the Power of the Purse.  I am honored to take on the challenge as Board President in this upcoming year.

BAUW is passionate about meeting the health and human services needs of our community . Board members devote their time and efforts to raising and allocating funds throughout Dist. 220 where the need is greatest. What is Raised Here, Stays Here.  We help fund programs such as the Splash Pad, programs within BACOA, BYFS and many others. People should feel confident knowing their generous gifts will go to those agencies that produce the greatest positive outcomes for our community.

I very much look forward to working with our executive director, staff and board members but most importantly the community.  Matching donors and recipients so that we can further the health and well being of Dist. 220 .

Through branding and marketing BAUW wants the community to note and celebrate all the wonderful things BAUW enables to happen.

We will be hitting the streets this September for our  “Be a Life Saver “ awareness campaign . Be sure to say hello and know your donation will certainly be used to help those in need in the Barrington Area.

Our Golf Outing held in August is one of the most fun and reasonable ways to give.  For only $150 a person, or $600 for a foursome, golfers can enjoy a breakfast ,day of golf and a wonderful luncheon knowing the difference you are making.

Power of the Purse ,our yearly celebration of women helping women, is held the first Thursday in March.  Each year people are given the opportunity to become a member for $100 and  a vote to decide who will receive the grant for a service specific to women and children’s needs.  The luncheon members and guests may bid in a  silent auction on purse packages,  participate in an impact raffle  for a designer purse, and meet  and learn about the grant recipient.

It will be wonderful to grow our base of philanthropy to great levels to support those we have been unable to reach and with greater visibility I want to convey that BAUW helps not just one cause but many.

 I hope to continue the great work and leadership that our predecessor was able to accomplish.

If you would like more information on how you can help BAUW and be apart of our board, please email   Kabauw@aol.com      

 

Looking forward to a great year!

DeeDee
