Northrim Bank just completed their annual United Way campaign and it was the bank’s most successful effort to date.

The goal for 2012 was ambitious: get $60,000 in pledges from Northrim employees—an amount that is approximately $5,000 more than what was raised last year, and $10,000 more than two years ago—toward reaching a total campaign goal of $90,000 that would include a corporate match and other monies.

At the end of the campaign, the goal was exceeded. Employee gifts totaled more than $75,000. Add to that the corporate match and other funds that came in through innovative fundraising events like the Give Change to Make Change donation bucket; a baked goods and coffee cart sale; Kandy Kudos; and photos with bank executives dressed as superheroes; the campaign raised more than $117,000, exceeding the already ambitious goal by nearly 40%.
