Brunswick Corp., the parent company of Fond du Lac, Wis.-based Mercury Marine, gave an $80,000 donation from the Brunswick Public Foundation to support the 2013 Fond du Lac Area United Way Community Fundraising Campaign.

“We are grateful to the Brunswick Foundation for the positive impact its support has on the campaign and our community each year,” Fond du Lac Area United Way executive director Tina Potter said in a statement. “We want them to know how appreciative we are for their continued support of our mission and ongoing community work. Community partners like Brunswick inspire the support we seek to meet our campaign goal of $740,000.”

United Way invests donations into a comprehensive mix of human service programs through a network of local providers.

“United Way funding builds the network’s financial capacity for serving a greater number of individuals and families in need of help,” United Way board member Sister Mary Mollison said. “Relying on each other [network members] is the spirit of our partnership and together we influence community well-being throughout Fond du Lac County.”

Potter said the foundation has been very effective in helping the Fond du Lac Area United Way invest in community well-being.

“For that, we thank the Brunswick Public Foundation for their continued support of the Fond du Lac community,” Potter said.
