Run A Campaign

Every year, millions of employees get involved in workplace giving campaigns to support local united way solutions that improve education, financial stability, and health. 

The United Way workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer, and speak out for causes that matter to them.  You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you're part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide. 

We would like to welcome you to the United Way of Kenosha County Campaign Team!  Thank you for stepping up and helping us fight for the education, financial stability, and health of everyone in Kenosha County.

What is a workplace campaign?  

A workplace campaign is an organized, company-sponsored fundraising drive where employees are asked to contribute to United Way.

  • Campaigns make it easy for employees to give - through payroll deduction.  A gift can be made over the course of a year or two at one time. 

  • Campaigns educate employees and organizations about community issues, connecting them with their community and allowing them to make informed decisions.

  • Each company running a United Way campaign is supported by a United Way staff member.  We help you plan your goals and will provide materials to make your campaign fun and effective.  

  • From leadership opportunities to team-building fun, your organization can support our community and connect with your employees through United Way.

The workplace campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community.  Here, locally, United Way of Kenosha County could not have a successful campaign without all of the hard work of our dedicated Employee Campaign Ambassadors (ECA's).  An ECA spearheads, coordinates, and directs giving campaign activities in their perspective workplace.
