Workplace Campaigns

The United Way workplace campaign has been called one of the greatest social inventions in American history. Working together with companies and their employees each year, we invite people through the workplace campaign to advance the common good and create opportunities for a better life for all.

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Payroll Deduction

Many in the workplace contribute to United Way through payroll deduction. Payroll deduction makes giving easy. Using a pledge website or a paper form, you tell us how much you’d like to give. Your employer then sets aside a portion of your earnings from each pay period.

Where the Money Goes

Your United Way contribution goes to work creating lasting changes right where you live. Local volunteers invest your contribution in the areas of education, income and health.

Some of the funds support programs and services that help people with basic needs, such as childcare, emergency shelter and free health clinics. Volunteers direct your contributions to the programs that get the best results.

United Way also works to keep people from needing those services in the first place. Working with a broad range of community partners, United Way supports new approaches that focus on prevention and community changes.

 

MATCHING GIFTS AND WORKPLACE GIVING

1.) CONFIRM:
Ask your HR contact or your employer’s Charitable Giving department if they offer gift matching, or check your workplace   intranet.

2.) FILL OUT:
Print or request your company’s matching gift form, or submit via your workplace intranet. Review the program guidelines to see whether United Way is eligible. Note our name and address (below), the date and amount of your gift, and remember to sign the form if required.

3.) SEND:
Forward it to us, and we’ll take it from there. If you’re not using a workplace intranet, you can e-mail it to us at: MatchingGifts@uwwesternct.org.

Or drop it in the mail to:
