Representatives from many local companies gathered together on Wednesday morning as the Montgomery United Fund For You (MUFFY) opened their “I Am MUFFY” 2017 campaign with a company training breakfast on the Wabash College campus.
MUFFY’s 2017 Campaign Chair Lisa Cooper welcomed guests, comprised of representatives from some of Montgomery County’s largest employers, and introduced attendees to new MUFFY Executive Director Terry Armstrong. 
“It’s been a very exciting introduction to the Montgomery County community,” said Armstrong, who spent last week, his first week on the job, touring MUFFY’s 17 partner agencies. “Getting to know the people who have such a passion for helping others is very motivating. I’m excited to get started on our 2017 campaign.”
This breakfast session was held to train attendees on the most effective and fun ways to hold a MUFFY campaign in their workplaces. More than 60 percent of annual donations to MUFFY come from organized workplace campaigns.
Adding to the incentive this year is an opportunity for donors to double their impact. MUFFY has secured a $50,000 matching grant through the Indiana Association of United Ways to increase donor participation in workplace campaigns. Companies who raise their MUFFY campaign participation by 5 percent or more can have their entire donation matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000. Companies who participate in this year’s MUFFY campaign who did not participate last year are also eligible for total donation matching. More information about the matching grant and the “I am MUFFY” campaign can be found on MUFFY’s website,
