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!

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!
