Every fall, United Way has a campaign to raise funds for local nonprofit agency programs. Our donors give to United Way through payroll deductions, corporate gifts, or one-time gifts.
It’s our goal to make a lasting impact in the Chattahoochee Valley. United Way donors make reaching that goal possible. Because of them, the 2016 campaign total was $7,123,001. They made sure that Every1Counts – every child, every Veteran, and every dollar.
How can you get involved?
There are many ways to get involved with the United Way campaign. Whether it’s leading a United Way campaign within your company as the Employee Campaign Coordinator (ECC), helping the United Way Resource Development Staff as a Loaned Executive (LE), or becoming a United Way donor.
Employee Campaign Coordinators
Who is an ECC?
An ECC is someone who helps their organization work with United Way and leads the organization’s annual United Way campaign through planning implementation and evaluation.
What does an ECC do?
- Educate employees about United Way and provide opportunities to get involved
- Assemble a committee who will help build support
- Set goals to increase giving (participation, leadership giving, monetary goals)
- Hold a campaign kickoff and coordinate other special events
- Distribute United Way materials and pledge forms to colleagues; submit completed forms and report envelopes to United Way staff
- Evaluate and refine the workplace campaign
- Find ways to engage year-round through advocacy and volunteerism
What is an LE?
An LE is a temporary staff member from a United Way Corporate Partner who works during campaign season helping the Resource Development Staff. The Resource Development Staff is a team of United Way staff members who assist ECCs with campaign efforts, including year-round activities.
United Way Donors
United Way donors make the Chattahoochee Valley a better place to live for everyone. Their dollars fund vital programs that assist families, children, homeless individuals, and so many more. Because of our supporters, children are fed, teens learn about healthy relationships, homeless individuals receive housing, and families have access to afterschool care.
