Mercury Marine employees give $93,218 to Fond du Lac Area United Way


Mercury Marine employees pledged $93,218 to the Fond du Lac Area United Way during the company’s annual pledge.

Coupled with an $80,000 contribution from the Brunswick Public Foundation, the total benefit from Mercury and its parent company to the Fond du Lac Area United Way is more than $173,000 in 2013.

Over the past two years, Mercury employees have pledged more than $172,000. Brunswick Corporation, the parent company of Mercury Marine, has contributed an additional $170,000 in donations in that span through its Brunswick Public Foundation.

“United Way values its longstanding partnerships with the Brunswick Public Foundation and Mercury Marine,” said Tina Potter, executive director of United Way in Fond du Lac. “Mercury Marine and its parent company continue to show great compassion and kindness for others in our community.

“On behalf of the United Way campaign team, our board of directors and the United Way staff, I’d like to thank the employees at Mercury Marine for their support. Due to their contributions, children will succeed better in school, the elderly will secure needed resources and parents will be educated on the development of their children, among other positive actions.”

The United Way provides financial support to a comprehensive mix of human-service programs through a network of local providers. Those programs serve an estimated 33,000 Fond du Lac-area residents each year.

“Mercury Marine and its employees are proud to support the United Way,” said Mark Schwabero, president of Mercury Marine. “The United Way plays a vital role in funding many of the charitable organizations that provide essential services within our community.”
