ANNUAL CAMPAIGN

United Way and Your Business
The Annual United Way Workplace Campaign raises funds throughout Newfoundland and Labrador to invest in charities province-wide, seeking support for projects they’re unable to fund independently. In short, we are a charity’s charity.

 

Running a United Way Campaign
There are many ways to run a workplace campaign; this is dependent on what works best for your company. At its core, a workplace campaign revolves around employee giving; however, there are opportunities for corporate giving, having fun with special events in support of United Way, and teambuilding activities through volunteer projects.

Individual/Employee Donations
Individual employees are given the opportunity to positively impact their community through donation. Employees can donate with ease through payroll deduction, credit card, cash or cheque.

Corporate Donations
The company has an opportunity to contribute to the workplace campaign by making a corporate donation. There are also opportunities for Sponsorship and participation in United Way’s Loaned Representative Program.

Special Events
This is a great way to keep employees engaged with your campaign. Employees plan/execute a fun activity that fits with your workplace. Examples include: bake sales, 50/50 draws, sumo wrestling, lip sync competitions, jeans day, coloring contests, etc.


Ways to Enhance your Campaign
Day of Caring This is a great team-building exercise that brings co-workers together to complete various tasks for a United Way funded charity or non-profit organization. Project examples include; gardening, cleanup, painting, construction, etc.

Stuff-a-Sock United Way hosts an annual stocking drive, for vulnerable adults in the province. We fill stockings with basic necessities and distribute them to women’s shelters, isolated seniors, individuals living without permanent housing and individuals living with mental health issues.


Getting Started
When you decide to host your first workplace campaign, we provide everything you need to get started, including: pledge forms for employee giving, marketing materials to support and promote the campaign within your workplace and support from our Campaign Coordinator, who will help you customize a campaign that’s right for your company.
