What Is A Workplace Giving Campaign?
A workplace campaign is an organized, company-sponsored fundraising drive where employees are given the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the United Way.
- Campaigns make it easy for employees to give – through payroll deduction. A gift can be made over the course of a year or at one time.
- Campaigns educate employees and organizations about local issues – connecting them with their community and allowing them to make informed decisions.
- Each company is supported by a United Way staff member. We will help you set your goals, plan your campaign and provide materials to make your campaign fun and effective.
