Workplace Campaigns are one of the most accessible ways for anyone to become a philanthropist within our community! Thanks to our business partners (listed below), employees throughout our five-county region are able to give through payroll deductions, making giving easy, secure, and simple! For just a few dollars a pay period they are making a difference in their community by joining together with others to fund the important work we and other nonprofits are doing here in Central Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom.
Our Campaign Champions are the engines that drive this giving, these folks commit their work time to making sure employees can participate in the campaign, have fun, give back, and are recognized for their generous contributions. If you’d like to join this incredible group of people and have your workplace hold a United Way Campaign, contact Carrie Stahler at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to talk! We are here to help you navigate this process, support your campaign, and celebrate your good work!
