Marion Goodwill Industries
Job readiness training at Marion Goodwill Industries helps participants understand workplace etiquette and employer expectations. Participants also learn how to conduct an effective job search and develop the skills required in their respective career fields.
Marion Allocation Committee
Comprised of dedicated volunteers representing a diverse range of community organizations, the Marion Allocation Committee is an integral component of our application and allocation process, helping to determine United Way funded partners and programs each year. The committee members review all funding applications, meet to discuss and evaluate applications, and recommend programs and funding amounts to the United Way Governing Board for final approval.

United Way 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. 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.
