The United Way of Southwestern Indiana announces the final numbers on Friday for its fundraising campaign.
Back in July, the United Way set a goal of $4.6 million. United Way President Amy Canterbury says the campaign exceeded their goal.
She says the funds are important because they help people become self-sufficient.
"Above all, we're talking about money," said Canterbury, "but it's also the folk it impacts. And it impacts folks that are looking for a hand up and not a handout."
Canterbury says the United Way is overjoyed with the community's support.
Curt Begle of Berry Plastics, who is a former University of Evansville basketball star, chaired this year's campaign.
The United Way says the money raised supports over 75 programs in southwestern Indiana, and only 20% of the funds raised stay with the United Way.
