VALPARAISO | Representatives from Lakeside Wealth Management, a leader in financial services in Northwest Indiana, presented Sharon Kish, President of United Way of Porter County, with a check for $40,000 for this year’s United Way campaign.
Although Lakeside Wealth Management has been a long-time community supporter, this is their first corporate gift to United Way of Porter County, making it eligible for a dollar for dollar match from the Indiana Association of United Ways. “In my business, we are very focused on positive returns on investments and it doesn’t get any better than a 100% return. I am thrilled to know how much greater reach our gift will have through United Way,” said Mark Chamberlain, Chairman and CEO of Lakeside Wealth. Added Tim Rice, President of Lakeside Wealth, “Exercising the ‘gratitude muscle’ is good for the heart, mind and soul. I'm glad the whole team could be a part of it!”
Because of their long-standing relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County, a portion of the gift has been designated to them, in addition to supporting the 37 other agencies and initiatives funded by United Way.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of Lakeside Wealth Management. It makes what we do at United Way possible. It takes all of us, our corporate partners, our agencies, our volunteers and every donor to create lasting change in our community. Because of this gift, lives will be changed. What an amazing kick-off for our 2013 campaign!” said Sharon Kish, President of United Way of Porter County.
United Way of Porter County improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of the Porter County community through financial and volunteer resource development. United Way invests in three core strategies: Education, Financial Stability, and Health. We help over 60,000 Porter County residents build better lives.
