Be a Champion For Change!

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.

Whether a small business, a major corporation or even a non-profit organization, you can join the numerous local businesses and organizations that run United Way campaigns each year.

Participating in a United Way campaign will give your organization the opportunity to learn firsthand about the needs in our local community as well as provide rewarding team building experiences through volunteerism.

Every workplace campaign is different and can be shaped around your organization’s culture. Setting up and running a campaign is simple, and we can help you every step of the way.
