Run a Workplace Campaign

Every dollar donated to United Way makes a difference in people’s lives. It’s especially true now, with the pandemic further complicating the struggles our community was already facing.

The resources here will guide you through starting your campaign, communicating about it with employees, holding virtual events and wrapping it all up. We’re eager to help you get started and make it a big success! Thank you for your work to round up those at your company to help people in need.

Giving Groups for Your Employees

These two United Way donor groups can make your employees feel even more connected to the great work they’re supporting with their gifts.

Emerging Leaders

If you have employees in their 20s or 30s who are interested in volunteering, networking and giving back all year long, invite them to join Emerging Leaders 365! With just $1/day, the impact they make through collective giving is incredible. Plus, Emerging Leaders 365 members get some cool perks for taking the lead on building our community for the better.

Change Makers

By giving $100/month or more for a year, Change Makers invest in improving our community for everyone. Joining this group includes special, intimate volunteer opportunities, educational sessions led by local experts, and other exclusive opportunities with community leaders and fellow donors.

Give Them Someplace to Go

United Way’s Together website is a great, easy to navigate overview of United Way of King County, the communities we serve and how together we’re working toward a racially just community where people have homes, students graduate and families are financially stable.

Sharing the Effect of Your Donations

There are truly pressing needs in our community. And these needs are where your employees’ donations will go. Check out our work in these areas:
