What is a workplace campaign?
The United Way workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them.
The workforce campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community.
Each year, thousands of people and hundreds of local companies and organizations support the United Way Community Campaign. Last year, more than $20 million was raised by 400 local workplaces and 30,000 donors.
Why run a campaign?
United Way cares about what you care about – and we’ll take a stand for it just like you. Choosing to give is a personal choice. It’s up to you where your donation will go. And we’ve made it easy for you to give.
