Become a United Way Champion
Thanks to the generosity of employees in the workplace, United Way of Roanoke Valley is able to help thousands of people in need in our community.
Workplace campaigns have long been the foundation of United Way of Roanoke Valley's fundraising efforts, and those who serve as our Employee Campaign Managers each year are key to our success. ECMs, as they're affectionately called, assume leadership responsibility for UWRV's campaign in the respective workplaces, and bring together the necessary resources to conduct a successful campaign.
Our Campaign Toolkit is an A-Z guide for running an impactful United Way Campaign in the workplace. Videos, brochures, posters, and tent cards are just a few of the materials available that can help educate employees about United Way-funded initiatives. We've even got some tried and true campaign ideas to help put fun and enthusiasm, into your campaign.
Start a Campaign
If you are interested in your company running a workplace campaign (offering employees an opportunity to contribute through one-time, scheduled, or payroll deduction), please contact one of our Development and Engagement Specialists at 540.777.4200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your company can contribute towards a collective community impact by providing a corporate gift. Some companies will even provide a corporate match for employee giving or for special UWRV fundraising events such as GivingTuesday or end of the year campaigns.
Companies can sponsor events and take advantage of year-round engagement opportunities by becoming a sponsor. There are several benefits to becoming a United Way of Roanoke Valley sponsor including increased brand recognition and reach, diversifying your audience, networking and more with our companies, community partners, donors, and other stakeholders.
Are you looking for opportunities for your employees to engage throughout the year? You've come to the right place. Some opportunities include our annual Day of Action, golf classic, voters for Fashions for Evergreens at The Hotel Roanoke, and several supply drives through the year. Please contact your Development and Engagement Specialist for opportunities.
Including one or more special events in your United Way Campaign can help motivate and promote team spirit, raise awareness and money. Special events provide co-workers with another way to support the campaign while participating in fun activities. Popular events include activites such as chili cook-offs, basket raffles, donations for casual dress day and corn hole tournaments. Talk with your Development and Engagement Specialist about special events that can further support and contribute to your overall campaign.
