WHAT IS A WORKPLACE CAMPAIGN?
Workplace Campaigns are short periods of time where you and your employees raise money to support United Way programs and partner agencies!
Employees can pledge to donate a small portion of their paychecks over the year or give with cash or check. Small amounts, bundled together, add up to a very large impact and an it's easy way to give back to the community!
Join us and fight for the education, financial stability and health of the greater Yankton community.
EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS,
JUST LIKE EVERY PERSON IN OUR COMMUNITY!
Last year's Community Campaign raised over $625,000 for United Way of Greater Yankton's Community Impact Fund.
Community Impact Funds are invested in over 60+ local programs impacting the education, financial stability and health of over 30,000 of our neighbors.
Every year about 3,500 committed volunteers work with children, seniors and families to improve the greater Yankton community.

CAMPAIGN PROMOTIONAL TOOLS
1. Choose a Campaign Coordinator to lead and recruit a team
Teams allow Campaign Coordinators to divide responsibilities into defined roles including: marketing and events, communication, finance, human resources, department liaisons, etc.
Seek the wisdom of experienced campaign volunteers and mix in new staff for a fresh perspective.
2. Set a Goal
Goals should be both challenging and realistic. Before you set a goal for your United Way Workplace Campaign, research the past trends of your workplace — including donation levels, number of staff and overall employee participation.
United Way Staff can provide all these details for you! Keep things fun by setting both monetary and participation objectives. Create goals that are motivating and attainable, and you’re sure to hit them.
3. Determine a Start and End Date
4. Plan Campaign Activities
This is the fun part! Plan a campaign kickoff, special events, volunteer activities, and most importantly, a wrap party.
5. Inform & ASK, ASK, ASK!
The #1 reason cited why individuals do not give is simply because they were never asked. You can do a group ask, where you learn about United Way together, or individual asks, which often results in greater participation.
6. Thank You's
One of the most important aspects of a campaign is saying "thank you" and communicating your success with your team! Get creative and make sure everyone feels appreciated!
