It is with a mix of joy and sadness that we wish Carol Scharlau a Happy Retirement. Carol has served our organization for 25 years in every capacity imaginable - from Board Chair to volunteer coordinator. For the past several years Carol has served as Director of Major and Planned Gifts. Most noted of her contributions is creating our Pillar leadership giving program, which now accounts for nearly 60% of our campaign dollars every year.
Carol's accomplishments in our community are too lengthy to list, but what she has given us here at united way that we are most grateful for is her kind heart and warm smile. Our supporters all speak of her ability to connect them with our mission and feel valued as volunteers and donors. We will never be able to fully express our gratitude, but know that her legacy of giving will live on as we build on all she has accomplished here. Carol, we wish you the very, very best!
