Workplace Campaign

Since 1953, United Way of Greater New Bedford’s work has been supported by Workplace Campaigns. Workplace Campaigns are one of the most accessible ways for anyone to become a philanthropist within our community for as little as $1 per pay period, or just $26 per year!

Over 100 local companies give back to their communities by hosting Workplace Campaigns. Thanks to these business partners, employees throughout our region are able to give through payroll deductions, making giving easy, secure, and simple! For just a few dollars a pay period, they are making a difference in their community by joining together with others to fund the important work, we, and other nonprofits are doing here around causes that matter to them, including healthy community, youth opportunity, economic mobility, and family resiliency. 

The campaign is about more than raising money for a worthy cause; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community.

Whether you have 2 employees or 200, your business can make a difference by supporting our mission to mobilize people, partnerships, and resources to catalyze change that strengthens the communities we serve.

United Way of Greater New Bedford will provide all the materials and support needed to run your campaign. Employees can choose to make a pledge of any amount and spread their contribution out over the year through an easy payroll deduction, or make a one-time cash, check, or online donation. If desired, a representative from United Way will also come in and speak to your employees about the impact their donations can have on the community.

Companies that run a Workplace Campaign will be listed in our annual report, and those that achieve 75-100% participation will receive special recognition.

If you’re interested in running a Workplace Campaign or would like to learn more, contact Kristine at or 508-994-9625 ext. 215.
