Workplace Giving

Why Run a Workplace Campaign?

Hosting a United Way workplace campaign gives organizations and employees a unique opportunity to learn about and help address some of our community’s most important needs — needs that no single donor, charity or government agency can handle alone. A workplace campaign is the most efficient way to generate substantial financial resources that can be invested into a community.

A United Way workplace campaign:

  • Increases goodwill among customers and constituents by giving back to the community
  • Meets company or organizational philanthropic goals — we make it easy to give financially, volunteer and keep up to date on the needs of our area
  • Energizes your employees by focusing your organization toward a common goal helps build morale and teamwork
  • Connects employees to volunteer opportunities in their community
  • Ensures that employee donations are put to work in the local community

United Way offers training and support in building a fundraising team and running a great campaign. Our collaborative efforts to build a strong, healthy and equitable community ensure that employee contributions actually make a difference, today AND tomorrow.

Your employees choose how they want United Way to invest their contribution. Whether that means earmarking their donation for a specific impact area like education, designating part of their gift to another community partner or simply trusting United Way to apply their contribution where it is most needed. 

Every workplace campaign is different and can be tailored to an organization’s needs and culture. Contact us at ResourceDevelopment@UnitedWayTopeka.org to get started today.
