United Way’s Annual Giving Campaign in local workplaces is about bringing people together to tackle our community’s most difficult issues because no one person or organization can do it alone. Whether you’re a small business, major corporation or even a nonprofit, you can join thousands of businesses and organizations nationwide that run workplace campaigns each year.
Participating in the United Way Annual Giving Campaign in your workplace gives organizations and their employees the opportunity to learn about our community’s needs and give them a convenient opportunity to get involved.
From local office supply stores to national manufacturers, we partner with a wide variety of businesses in many different industries and recognize individuals and organizations that run excellent campaigns at our annual meeting.
Every workplace campaign is different and can be shaped around your organization’s culture. Setting up and running a campaign is simple and we can help you every step of the way.
We can help you set up your campaign so that employees can contribute through payroll deductions or easy-to-use online tools. Many companies double their impact by matching their employees’ giving dollar for dollar.
