Getting Started on your Workplace Campaign
It's employee campaign time and our funded partners are a vital source of donations for 2017 - 2018. Please contact your local United Way for more information or email Barbara Bates-Nelson, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org to help on making your employee campaign a success!
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!
Your first step would be to obtain the support of the key decision maker in your organization. With their backing, the payroll department can initiate the payroll deduction process. At campaign time, employees can easily choose to have a small amount deducted from their pay, and won’t even miss it. Your company becomes a member of the community investors – receiving public recognition.
