Campaign Associate Program
Every year, United Way recruits several individuals to help support our fundraising campaigns at workplaces across the Fort McMurray and Wood Buffalo region. Campaign Associates are an extension of our fundraising team and help manage dozens of organization and union accounts.
The Campaign Associate program increases our fundraising staff at no extra cost to United Way and allows us to provide outstanding service to our donors.
What is a Campaign Associate?
A Campaign Associate is an employee who is loaned (seconded) from their organization or sponsored by an organization to work for 16 weeks during United Way’s annual fundraising campaign from September to December to support almost 60 programs and initiatives that help kids be all that they can be and prevent poverty and social isolation. Associates gain valuable professional development during this fun, action-packed work term.
Loaned employees apply through their workplace and continue to be paid by their employer. A sponsored Associate is an individual who is hired by United Way, whose bi-weekly honorarium is paid for by a sponsoring organization.
