Workplace Giving

This year, workplace campaigns may look a little different, as more companies shift to remote work environments to protect the health and safety of their teams. But your company, large or small, can still help to build a stronger community. We’ve created the materials and training you need to run a successful in-person or virtual workplace campaign. We’ve also compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you quickly provide answers in these uncertain times.

We know that change doesn’t happen alone,
and when we live UNITED, we see what’s possible.

Pledge Cards

People give to United Way of Greater Stark County for many reasons, but the No. 1 reason people do not donate is because they weren’t asked.

  • What is the best way to inspire your employees to give?
  • How can we educate our employees about what United Way is about?
  • What can your organization’s leadership do to lead the way?

Access downloadable United Way pledge cards and additional resources to help you “make the ask.”
