CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE BY GIVING

Workplace Giving

Workplace Campaigns

Workplace Campaigns are the most common and most popular format for United Way fundraising efforts. If your business hosts a workplace campaign, you may give through a recurring payroll deduction or make a one-time gift by cash or check. You can also participate and get involved with special events, including employee meals, games, and other activities to generate excitement, community involvement, and team building. Many companies enhance the giving of their workers by offering a percentage match to employee giving or making a separate corporate gift. Ask your business leadership or HR director if your company or business has a workplace campaign. If you're a business leader and would like to learn more about creating positive change by hosting a United Way campaign, click on the Start a Campaign tab above.

Start a Workplace Campaign

Hosting a workplace campaign is a great way to create positive change and give back to the community where your customers do business, your employees reside, and your children go to school.

Workplace campaigns represent collective action in giving, volunteering and advocacy. By joining the current movement of dozens of corporate partners in our community, you are joining a group of workplace leaders committed to making Sumner County a better place for everyone to live, work and play through creating opportunity for all.

READY TO BEGIN?

Starting a campaign begins with a conversation. Our goal is to build philanthropy around you by understanding your company’s philanthropic vision and corporate social responsibility goals. We can do more together. Workplace campaigns are the best way to maximize local giving and community involvement. When run well, they provide an important means of improving awareness of issues facing local families and deepening relationships between employees and the community.

We are constantly upgrading and adapting our campaign strategies and materials to meet changing conditions and needs. You can find some of our current tools on our Workplace Engagement page. From fundraising ideas to employee communication and everything in between, our team has, or will develop, the resources you need to make your workplace campaign a success.

To start a conversation about starting a workplace campaign for your business, simply fill out and submit the form below. We look forward to discussing your corporate goals and creating a program that meets your needs and positions your brand as one that is creating positive change in Sumner County.
