United Way presents to your staff and we work together to coordinate internal payroll deductions. The most successful campaigns include informed executives that provide incentives and use the workplace campaign as a way to create team building opportunities that work towards a common goal.

Staff capacity might be low, and your business might not feel comfortable asking your workers to donate, but you can still contribute on behalf of your company monetarily or by offering discounts, donating supplies or services, or hosting fundraisers with your clients.
To create a larger collective impact consider offering a company match.
Create fun activities for your staff, club, or group to make a difference in your community. Creating games or competitions can add additional excitement.

The options are limitless and can create a sense of pride for your staff. SIGN UP HERE for our online peer-to-peer platform.
