United Way Workplace Campaign

Live United!

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. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you’re part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.

Employers who participate in workplace campaigns find benefits beyond the immediate impact in the community,  including more engaged employees and an enhanced spirit of corporate volunteerism.

Workplace Campaign Toolkit

We appreciate the efforts of local businesses and organizations in supporting and administering United Way Workplace Campaigns and are committed to doing everything we can to support each Campaign Coordinator based on the individual needs of their workplace. Available support includes interactive in-person training, annual Campaign Coordinator Luncheon, shared guidance and encouragement from experienced Coordinators, employee engagement support, and United Way staff support and marketing materials.
