Thank You!

You are essential to the success of our Annual Campaign. Without you, we could not provide the critical funds needed in our fight to improve health, education, and financial stability.

What binds us together is the belief that each of us has a stake in the success of our fellow citizens. United, we can ensure our community thrives. Whether this is your first time as an Employee Campaign Coordinator (ECC) or you’re a seasoned veteran, we are here to help you have a successful campaign from start to finish.

On behalf of all of the people served in our community, we thank you for coordinating your 2021 workplace giving campaign.


2021 Workplace Campaign - Steps to Success

Step 1: Prepare

  • Determine how you will hold your campaign - paper forms, ePledge, or a hybrid method.
    • ePledge is a great way to simplify your campaign. It is especially helpful if you have employees in multiple sites or working remotely. Connect with our team to learn more.
  • Virtually attend United Way's Campaign Training
  • Set your campaign dates
  • Assemble your Campaign Team
  • Set your Campaign Goal

Step 2: Build a Communication Plan

  • Browse the Resource Library (below) and determine which tools you will use
  • Arrange a United Way Speaker (virtual or in person)
  • Determine multiple ways you can reach your employees - email, Intranet, Yammer/Slack/Workplace postings, posters...
  • Consider a Kickoff event or other special events
  • Will you utilize any incentives or prizes?
  • Go over your plan with your United Way staff member

Step 3: Execute Your Plan!

  • Communicate with employees at least four times - on launch day, mid-campaign, a final push and of course - a Thank You.
  • Provide live updates on Campaign progress and celebrate milestones
  • Keep it short - 2 weeks or less is plenty for a majority of companies
  • Contact United Way with any concerns or for assistance
