The United Way of Central Carolinas announced Wednesday it raised $21,201,393, surpassing its $21.2 million goal.
United Way officials credited a key gift from four corporate donors for helping them finish the fundraising drive this year.
Duke Energy, Bank of America, Family Dollar and Ingersoll Rand contributed a combined $255,000 to push the campaign just over its target.
Next, volunteer Community Investment Councils will determine how to distribute the funds among United Way agencies. The volunteer councils have already begun evaluating agencies and will vote on recommended funding in June.
