United Way of Greater Los Angeles Announces Matching Fund Launched by Two Local Philanthropists
Date:9/17/2009

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- United Way of Greater Los Angeles (UWGLA) today announced the creation of the one million dollar Mullin-Miller Match Fund. The fund, created by local philanthropists Peter W. Mullin, Chairman Emeritus, Mullin TBG, and Charles D. Miller, retired Chairman and CEO, Avery Dennison Corporation, will provide for UWGLA to match dollar for dollar any new donations made to the Creating Pathways Out of Poverty Plan, up to the $1 million pledged.

"The endorsement of our work to fight poverty by these two generous donors will help empower others in the community to support our collective cause," said Elise Buik, president and CEO, United Way of Greater Los Angeles. "In the last 12 months, Los Angeles County has seen a drastic increase of people desperately needing assistance, including families looking toward services to help with housing and healthcare. These generous gifts will help catalyze the critical resources necessary to solve our region's most pressing problems, and help all residents realize the promise of our community."

The Creating Pathways Out of Poverty Plan focuses on three interconnected areas that can bring about the sustainable change Greater Los Angeles needs. These three areas are the building blocks that create family and social stability, as well as the foundation for long-term economic growth, including: 1) ensuring that everyone has the ability to meet critical needs such as housing and healthcare; 2) guaranteeing that the younger generation graduates from high school prepared for college and the workforce; and 3) ensuring that economic and employment opportunities are accessible so people can provide for their families now and in the long-term.

"In this city, given the circumstances and problems we face, it is time to work harder to help the less fortunate," said Peter W. Mullin, Chairman Emeritus, Mullin TBG. "Creating
