You have many options when deciding how to invest your time and financial resources. Why should your company choose United Way as your partner for company giving?
We offer great resources. We provide a staff liaison, half-day training, an online toolkit, printed collateral and more. Our goal is to make your campaign successful, and we’ll walk with you every step of the way.
Start a Workplace Campaign
Thousands of local companies – from the largest headquarters to the smallest shops – run United Way campaigns in their workplace because they understand how it benefits the entire region.
United Way makes it easy to get started. We provide materials to communicate to your employees as well as easy ways to raise and collect the donations. You can make your campaign as involved or simple as you want; we encourage companies to do what’s right for their company culture. Through your United Way campaign, your employees will feel connected to our region by giving back in such an important way.
Benefits of Running a Campaign
- Increased employee morale and teamwork. Companies that run annual employee campaigns document higher morale and teamwork. Employees learn about services provided by United Way and work together to plan and engage in fun activities to raise money as a company: raffles, games, social events, special incentives for givers like jeans day, or parking in an executive parking space.
- A healthier region. Our region benefits from healthier residents—even those not employed in your business. Your business will prosper more in a healthier region. Other businesses will stay here and add employees. Businesses outside our area will invest here if we have a well-educated workforce, attractive and safe neighborhoods, a strong educational system, a renewed downtown and social services that address and reduce health and human service needs.
- Tax benefits.
- Community and media recognition.
