Most employees appreciate having an opportunity to invest in their community – and employee campaigns are the easiest and most efficient ways to do it. Employee giving provides a sizable share of the annual community campaign dollars. It is by that “sharing” that so much is accomplished. Furthermore, employees have fun…. from bake sales to chili cook offs, companies consistently find novel ways to raise those needed dollars while building camaraderie and team spirit!

Steps for Helping to Run a Successful Campaign:

- Involve your CEO. The success of your campaign will be significantly improved based on the commitment and visible support of your senior managers and chief executive officer.

- Recruit and train your campaign team. Your campaign committee will help you manage your organization's campaign and communicate with employees about United Way.

- Promote and publicize. United Way can help you create an atmosphere of contagious enthusiasm as you inform employees about how their contributions help change lives in Ozaukee County.

- Make the ask. It is important to make the ask to allow every employee to make an educated and personal decision about giving to United Way.

- Report your results. Employee follow-up and timely reporting of results is critical.

- Say thank you! Thanking everyone involved cannot be overemphasized.

- Plan for next year's campaign. Getting an early start to next year's campaign allows you the opportunity to execute an even more successful campaign for years to come.
