United Way is happy to offer various forms of corporate engagement opportunities through sponsored events, gifts to raffles, and more! United Way will support and promote your sponsorship through recognition on marketing materials, extensive media coverage and recognition in United Way reports.
In-kind donations are a unique approach to charitable giving which consist of donating goods and providing services, rather than cash. Gifts are used to support events such as Campaign Kick-Off, Campaign Celebration and Day of Caring as well as at raffles during events such as Songs of the City.
United Way hosts several events throughout the years including Songs of the City and Day of Caring for which we offer various tiers of sponsorship for each event. Please contact us for more information regarding sponsoring events.
Many corporate partners will choose to host their own event and donate all proceeds toward their campaign goal. United Way will help promote your event through our website, social media and other communications.
United Way offer companies the unique opportunity to loan one of their current employees to work for United Way during campaign season.
During a 12-week full-time secondment, usually from September to December, Sponsored Employees – through extensive training and ongoing support – become experts in designing, delivering and analyzing United Way fundraising efforts.
This program presents a unique development opportunity for employees at any stage of their careers. Many organizations now incorporate the program into their orientation for management trainees; others use it as professional development for employees who are up-and-coming; while some have used the program as a valuable transition for employees who are retiring or leaving the workplace.
Sponsored Employees return to the job refreshed, re-energized, and enriched. As a result, they often become well positioned for promotions and other exciting opportunities. United Way’s Sponsored Employee Program provides employees responsible for workplace campaigns (Employee Campaign Coordinators) with the customized advice and resources they need to be successful.
