United Way announces 2014 campaign chairs

NORMAN — United Way of Norman announced that Steve and Janet Corley will chair the 2014 fundraising campaign.

“Working together on this year’s campaign is exciting, and we are committed to the success of reaching this year’s goal,” Steve said. “There are so many people involved in the campaign that have years of experience, so we are grateful for the leadership and dedication of time that this army of volunteers commits in working on the campaign.”

“We are thrilled to have Steve and Janet’s leadership this fall,” said Kristin Collins, United Way of Norman president. “The Corleys are respected and admired for their years of volunteer service in Norman. It’s an honor to work on the 2014 campaign with them.”

Steve serves as the partner in charge of the three Eide Bailly offices in Oklahoma. He has been a practicing CPA in Norman since 1979. 

Janet has a variety of professional work experiences and is currently spending her time as a glass artist and community volunteer. She and Steve have been involved with a number of organizations and projects around Norman.

“We both share a desire to give back — both of our resources but also of our time and energy,” Janet said. “We have witnessed the positive impact from the services offered by United Way partner agencies, which ultimately affects the quality of life in Norman.”

Steve and Janet know that the key ingredient to achieving campaign goals is donors.

“There are many thousands of donors who are so great about stepping up every year,” Steve said, “whether it is a workplace that encourages participation, students who raise money in so many ways or individuals that realize the value of having services available that meet the needs of the variety of residents in Norman.

“We know this broad-based community support will continue to help make Norman a great place to live, work and raise a family.”
