     Each year, United Way of the River Cities recognizes organizations that raise the most in pledges during the workplace campaign. We acknowledge and thank these organizations because their employees and the organizations
     themselves are committing to financial support for the coming funding cycle. As important as these pledges are, equally as important is following through on those promised financial commitments. This year, we would like to
     recognize the organizations and their employees that honor those pledges through their payments. When this happens, it means that we have the cash needed to honor our grant commitments to funded partners, and it helps
     reduce our uncollectible, or “bad debt,” expense. The organizations below paid at least 95 percent of the 2010 corporate and employee pledges during 2011. Thank you for your continued support!
