Start a Campaign

Partnering with United Way of United Way of North Central Iowa to establish a workplace campaign means much more than just raising money. As the leader of a local business, this is your opportunity to have a profound impact on our community, while reinforcing your reputation as a good corporate citizen. Whether you’re a small business, major corporation or a nonprofit, you can join other local businesses and organizations that are making a difference through their workplace giving campaigns. We make it easy for companies to provide their employees with meaningful opportunities to give back to the community, at a level they feel comfortable—a benefit for any corporate culture.

What Is A Workplace Giving Campaign?

A workplace campaign is an organized, company-sponsored fundraising drive where employees are given the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the United Way.

  • Campaigns make it easy for employees to give – through payroll deduction. A gift can be made over the course of a year or at one time.
  • Campaigns educate employees and organizations about local issues – connecting them with their community and allowing them to make informed decisions.
  • Each company is supported by a United Way staff member. We will help you set your goals, plan your campaign and provide materials to make your campaign fun and effective.
