For only the second time in 12 years, the United Way of Orange County has reached its fund-raising goal, pulling in $18.4 million in pledges. The amount reflects a 5.1% increase over last year's total and brings the agency back to the level of donations it received in 1992. Elated agency officials said the almost $1-million increase in pledges was due largely to applying fundamental business principles to the job of charitable solicitation.

Franklin Ensoy was getting impatient. He'd gotten up early to do some work--any work--as part of a mass volunteer effort across the city Saturday called Community Care Day, an event to kick off the United Way of Greater Los Angeles' 34th annual fund-raising campaign. But so far, all he'd done was listen to speeches, eat bagels and mill around. "Almost three hours!" he exclaimed, looking at his watch. "We've wasted so much time."

The outgoing president of the United Way will receive a parting gift of $292,500--the equivalent of 18 months' pay--from board members who say they appreciate her efforts to lift the charity out of the controversy created by her predecessor. Elaine L. Chao, 42, the wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), is receiving the cash from "between six and eight" board members, not from the charity, said member Paula Harper Bethea, one of those contributing.
