Running a United Way workplace campaign is a one of the most effective ways that hundreds of companies partner with us to support their communities. Providing employees with meaningful opportunities to give back to the community at the level they feel comfortable is a benefit for any corporate culture. A well-developed partnership with United Way provides employees with these and many other opportunities:
- Community Involvement -- opportunities to give back and make a difference
- Convenience and affordability in giving options such as payroll deduction and electronic pledging
- United Way's knowledge of the community ensures contributions are channeled to where the needs are greatest
- Strategic giving -- opportunities for direct contributions by area of interest such as education, healthcare, or financial stability
- Professional and service-oriented volunteer roles with community agencies
- Special membership benefits for donors who give $1,000 and more annually
