Without you, there would be no way
Each year nearly 1100 organizations and thousands of employees from all sectors participate in a United Way workplace campaign. Most run between September and December but some, called Pacesetters, get involved even earlier and complete their campaigns before the official kickoff in mid-September. While the main goal is to raise money in support of strategies that help kids be all they can be, move people from poverty to possibility and inspire healthy people and strong communities, getting involved in a United Way workplace campaign has other benefits too.
Fun!: For a few weeks each year, you and your co-workers can challenge one another in any number of creative and engaging activities and events. Put the “fun” in fundraising with a talent show, cook-off, scavenger hunt or auction. You’re limited only by your imagination, good taste and employer’s endorsement.
Personal development: Develop new skills like project and time management, leadership, event planning and public speaking.
Awareness: Learn more about our community.
Regardless of the size of your organization or whether there are five or 500 employees, participation in a United Way workplace campaign is a tremendously rewarding experience. You’ll feel great knowing you’re changing lives, plus the most creative, engaging and best-led workplace campaigns are eligible for United Way Spirit Awards during a special presentation each January.
Rally your co-workers and help change lives – including your own – by organizing a United Way campaign in your workplace. Join your existing campaign team or start something new. There are several ways to get involved and many important roles beginning with Employee Campaign Chair. Plus, United Way staff and volunteers are available to help you every step of the way.
