WORKPLACE GIVING AND VOLUNTEERING WITH UNITED WAY
Workplace Giving and Volunteering in 2020 and Beyond: United Way Makes It Flexible, Meaningful, and Fun
This year, more than ever, we want to help your employees make a difference for the people who struggle in our corner of Connecticut. A new generation of workers are dedicated to supporting causes and their communities, and they want the flexibility to give from a variety of devices or via text. Social distancing means giving through technology is the new normal. United Way of Western Connecticut offers workplace giving solutions that are as comprehensive or as simple as your needs. Whether you’re still working remotely or your employees are out in the feld or at their desks, we have a solution that allow your company to make a difference for people who are struggling during these challenging times. See what we have to offer and we can work with you to create a custom solution that works best for you and your team.
Online giving is easy and straightforward using FrontStream technology to automate and run your workplace campaign online. Employees can make their workplace donations seamlessly online, and company administrators can access rich reporting and data.
As we follow CDC guidelines, we have made on-site volunteering a little different this year, but we’ve still been able to conduct drive-thru food drives, coordinate meal deliveries, and put volunteers to work delivering necessities to the homebound, while maintaining and observing safety protocols.
As the requirements for social distancing ease, we’ll be back to running our usual events, such as creating Martin Luther King Day Literacy Kits for students in elementary schools and STEM Fairs. United Way has successfully collaborated with many companies and corporations to organize corporate volunteer service projects. Let us know how we can customize an event for your workplace. To learn more, contact Stacy Schulman at 203.826.8479 or email@example.com
We can also set up a single fundraiser for your employees through Mobile Cause. This is perfect for when you want to do a drive to support one of United Way’s community initiatives, like collecting donations for the Food Collaboratives or the ALICE Enrichment Fund, which pays for out-of-school activities for low-income children. Or you can set up campaigns for one-time giving events, like Giving Tuesday, or a special day of giving for your company, to celebrate a Founder's Day Anniversary, for example.
United Way has partnered with Salesforce to offer a comprehensive, full-featured online giving platform that lets your employees engage in philanthropy year-round. Philanthropy Cloud offers an easy-to-use, intuitive, and intelligent interface that allows you to run employee giving campaigns, while also offering volunteering opportunities and tracking participation.
We also can host an online auction and virtual event ticketing for your company fundraising.
