Thank you for being a United Way Employee Campaign Coordinator

United Way of Central Illinois’ Annual Campaign is about bringing people together to support the causes our community cares about. As an Employee Campaign Coordinator (ECC), your role is crucial to the success of your company’s campaign and for the millions of dollars of charitable support United Way mobilizes each year.

Without you, we could not lead the fight for the basic needs, education, financial stability, and health of every person in our community. Thank you!

Being an ECC is about more than spending time distributing materials, organizing events and spreading the United Way message. It’s an opportunity to:

  • Become more connected to the people in your company.
  • Strengthen relationships with your co-workers.
  • Demonstrate your leadership skills.
  • Network with others in the community through training and events, and
  • Have fun!

Whether this is your first time as a coordinator or you have organized your campaign multiple times, this guide will help you get the most out of your campaign; and more importantly, change the lives of thousands of individuals and families throughout our community.

Thank you for volunteering to be part of the annual United Way Campaign. Together, united, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
