Run a Workplace Campaign
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): your company is probably already demonstrating a commitment to philanthropy. United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties, however, can help take you to the next level and GIVE, ADVOCATE and VOLUNTEER in a coordinated manner that reflects a positive company culture.
Corporate Social Responsibility is proven to build a positive culture among employees which attracts and retains talent in the workplace and improves engagement among staff. A coordinated CSR plan highlights your “work with purpose” and amplifies your collective impact on the community where your employees live and work.
GIVE: More than 300 organizations in Flagler and Volusia Counties run a workplace campaigns each year, asking their employees to contribute to United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties and help their neighbors in need. These campaigns provide the largest percentage of our agency grant funding and the success is due to the many individual employee donations. From the stockroom to the boardroom, employees value the opportunity to help others through workplace giving. Along with your appointed company United Way coordinator, our Resource Development Team will support your campaign efforts with:
- United Way and local funded agency presentations
- Digital and/or print materials
- Resources which directly assist your employees (such as 211 and VITA)
Our Team is here to help reach your company goal. Employees may use our pledge form for payroll deduction, one time donations and recurring gifts. Or, we are happy to set up a company digital campaign, which we manage from start to finish.
ADVOCATE: Speak out, be informed, raise awareness. One out of three people have been touched by a United Way funded agency at some point in their life. United Way may be your neighbor, your grocer, your delivery guy, your co-worker. At the same time, issues facing 46% of Florida’s residents are compounded by the fact they live paycheck to paycheck, one emergency, like a car breakdown, away from crisis. As a company, you can share how your company is making a difference in the community through United Way. We need story-tellers, game-changers, hand-raisers, and problem-solvers. We need change-agents like you.
VOLUNTEER: Our volunteer portal, Get Connected, highlights over 100 local non-profits and their volunteer opportunities. Employees can volunteer on their own as often as they wish, connecting with projects that fuel their passion and areas of expertise; we’ll even keep track of their volunteer hours. Or, your company can participate in a volunteer project together for greater community impact and as a team building exercise. Our Volunteer Coordinator will set up all the project details including your unique company registration portal.
