Thanks to all of our Corporate Partners!

and many more!

Running a United Way “Campaign” is a traditional way thousands of companies partner with us to support their communities. Providing employees with meaningful opportunities to give back to the community at the level they feel comfortable is a benefit for any corporate culture. A well-developed partnership with United Way provides employees with these and many other opportunities:

  • Community Involvement — opportunities to give back and improve lives
  • Convenience and affordability in giving options such as payroll deduction and electronic pledging
  • United Way’s knowledge of the community ensures investments are channeled to where the needs are greatest
  • Strategic giving — opportunities for direct investments by area of interest such as healthcare, education or financial stability
  • Professional and service-oriented volunteer roles with partner agencies
  • Publications, eUpdates and educational forums to stay informed of pressing social issues

If you are interested in running a United Way campaign, please contact the Resource Development office, at 892-2333.
