How to Run a Workplace Campaign?

Thank you for getting involved and giving back to your community. You are part of a local love movement of like-minded individuals working together to help people in need.

So you’ve stepped up and volunteered to run a workplace campaign in support of your community. That’s great news! We’re so happy to have you as part of the United Way family, and to support you in your personal and professional development.  When you run a campaign, you’ll bring your co-workers together, inspire them to make an impact on #UNIGNORABLE issues and join dozens of other organizations in Fort McMurray and Wood Buffalo and its surrounding area to do local good. Along the way, you’ll meet new people, build your network, learn new skills, and have fun!

National Campaign Materials

Print and display this poster around your workplace to tell your colleagues about your United Way campaign, and to show them the lives impacted by donations to United Way. 
 
There are three options for this year’s thermometer poster: print your favourite to display around your workplace and let your colleagues know how your United Way campaign is doing! Update the poster often to keep everyone informed as you work towards your fundraising goal. 
 

The donor information brochure is a great tool to use to give people a quick idea of why donating to United Way is important. Use this tool to communicate to your colleagues what United Way does and and how they can support your United Way campaign. 

The leadership case for support is a tool to communicate to people about why supporting United Way is important, especially at the Leadership Donor level (gifts of $1,200 and above), including the benefits that one receives at that giving level. Use this document to encourage colleagues to support United Way during your campaign and to become Leadership donors.
