Bring the community into your business! Hundreds of businesses in our region host workplace campaigns to benefit United Way. We have volunteers and campaign staff to help you get started.

Mobilizing your company community

What is a Workplace Campaign?

Our model for community-wide fundraising is tried and true. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun:

  1. A dedicated team of community volunteers help us organize, share our mission and reach new businesses.
  2. Businesses that host campaigns get their entire staff involved (clients and customers too!) and rally their teams around shared goals.
  3. United Way offers tools and ideas to motivate participation and provides support to maximize both the experience and the net result.

Workplace campaigns are a powerful experience with huge benefits for our community. Overwhelming successes remind us year after year that when we work together, we accomplish great things.

$1 donated to United Way Workplace Campaigns = $3 back into the community

Through the power of collaboration and volunteering, United Way is able to triple the impact of every dollar given through annual workplace campaigns.
