United Way’s Workplace Campaigns are about bringing people together where they work to tackle our community’s most challenging issues – because no one person or organization can do it alone.
Running a Successful Fundraising Campaign
Running a fundraising campaign in your workplace can be both challenging and rewarding. As a United Way Employee Campaign Coordinator (ECC), you play a critical role in building community investment. Every workplace is different, and your organization’s culture will shape your workplace campaign. We can help you every step of the way.
Be sure to review the ECC Booklet to help you plan your workplace campaign.
Don’t try to run your campaign alone. Enlist a committee of enthusiastic, resourceful, and dedicated employees to help you plan the best campaign possible.
Share United Way’s vision, mission, and message with all employees.
Connect employees to our work and show them how they can be a part of it.
Campaigns with visibility encourage everyone to get involved. Ask everyone to give.
Don’t forget to say thanks to donors and your fundraising team. Providing a positive experience is critical in showing your appreciation and creating consistent donors.
Without you, we would not be able to reduce the effects of poverty, transform lives, and build a better community for us all. This roadmap and the resources in this toolkit will act as your foundation for putting together a great campaign.
Our partner companies are asked to adhere to the following guidelines at all times. Special requests/exceptions must be discussed with United Way’s marketing team.
