How does a United Way workplace giving campaign work?
United Way Emerald Coast’s workplace campaigns bring your team together to plan and execute an internal fundraising campaign that encourages employees to donate to their local United Way through payroll deduction. Campaigns typically last a week or two and include fun, employee-friendly activities, and volunteer opportunities.
Each campaign is different and tailored to your organization’s unique culture and identity. Most importantly, United Way staff is available to help plan and execute your campaign every step of the way. Please contact our Director of Development, Marlee Tucker, and she will help you customize the campaign based on your organization's philanthropic goals. Marlee may be reached at 850.243.0315 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may use any of the documents below during your campaign, or simply contact UWEC and we will provide you with printed copies of requested materials. If something is missing that you believe would be meaningful to your colleagues, please let us know!
Thank you for choosing to LIVE UNITED.
Welcome to the United Way team!
First and foremost, thank you. Thank you, not only on behalf of our organization, but the whole community. The work you’re doing with your workplace campaign will help create pathways out of poverty in Okaloosa and Walton counties for our most vulnerable neighbors. There is a great need in our community for the services offered by United Way’s funded programs. You never know when a family member, neighbor, friend, coworker or even you may need (or have used) the services provided through United Way funding.
As a workplace coordinator, you are our greatest champion in creating lasting change for our community. Please do not underestimate the profound impact your campaign will make on the lives of thousands.
You are making a difference.
As a workplace coordinator, you will educate and inspire others about the work of United Way and help them understand how their contributions help us improve lives and our community. You may find lots of information to help you run a successful campaign on our website. Remember, you are not alone. The United Way staff is here to help you; we are committed to being your greatest advocates because quite simply, we could not do this important work without you.
On behalf of the thousands of Okaloosa and Walton County citizens who are impacted each year by your donations, thank you. Many lives are forever changed by your dedication and generosity. We are honored to work with partners like you to leverage local resources that can solve community problems.
If we may be of any assistance during the campaign, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Together, we LIVE UNITED.
Marlee Tucker, Director of Development
