Further Your Impact

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities

Hosting a Workplace Campaign
Whether you have a team of 2 or 200, your business can make a difference by providing the opportunity for your employees to support their community through an easy payroll deduction or one-time donation.

Point-of-Sale or Percent-of-Proceed Giving
Make a pledge to donate a certain amount of money per transaction or a certain percentage of proceeds to United Way (i.e. $5 per salon appointment; $100 per sale or closing; 10% of all proceeds; etc.)
