Below are a few fun ideas to help you get started !

Running a United Way “Campaign” is a traditional way many companies partner with us to support our community. Providing employees with meaningful opportunities to give back to the community at the level they feel comfortable is a benefit for any corporate culture.  A well-developed partnership with United Way provides employees with these and many other opportunities.  Here are just a few fun ideas !

  • BAKE SALE:  Package to sell goodies within your office or to customers. Post information or pledge to the united Way.
  • INCENTIVES:  A day off or favorite parking spot for all participants that contribute or pledge to the United Way.
  • CUTEST BABY PICTURE CONTEST:  Set up a display of employee’s children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews for $5.00 entry. For $.25 a vote, employees vote for the cutest one. (Use baby food jars to collect under each picture).
  • PIZZA SALE:  Ask your company to purchase pizzas. Sell them for a $1.50 a slice and donate the proceeds.
  • BLUE JEANS:  Charge $3.00 to $5.00 to dress casual at the office on a given day.
  • RESERVED PARKING:  Auction an executive’s parking spot for the winner’s use for a week.
  • VENDING MACHINES:  Raise the cost of your company vending machines by $.25 for a month. Donate the extra money raised.
  • SILENT AUCTION:  Ask for a donation of things or services to be auctioned off at work. Suggest unique and personal things such as art, antiques, dessert every month for a year and etc. Display the items with a description and value. Bidders could use their names or be assigned a number.
