North State is one of the top 15 United Way corporate donors in the Greater High Point region
High Point, NC—September 25, 2014—North State, a fiber-based Internet and cloud service provider, recently donated $101,500 to the United Way of Greater High Point (“UWGHP”). North State has been a long-time supporter of the UWGHP with a pledge life of more than $1.1 million.
“We couldn’t be happier with this year’s campaign,” said Royster Tucker III, Chief Executive Officer at North State. “This is something that we have done for a long time, but it is great having such a large increase in 2014 from our organization. We are proud of this year’s results and hope this momentum continues to roll into our other community initiatives.”
“Our entire community—particularly the more than 75,000 individuals who are directly helped each year by a United Way agency—are both awed and appreciative of the phenomenal increase at North State this year,” said Bobby Smith, President of the United Way of Greater High Point. “The $40K jump will go down as one of the largest in the history of our United Way, and it also places North State among the top 15 largest donor corporations.”
“North State, a pacesetter in our area, is an organization that year after year produces early campaign momentum for the general campaigns,” said Jane Liebscher, the VP of Resource Development on Pacesetters. “They also help the United Way of Greater High Point’s Cabinet determine the overall campaign goal.”
The internal campaign theme was “Be a Hero.” North State employees participated in competitive challenges between departments raising $51,500 in just nine days. North State matched this year’s donation with an additional $50,000.
