United Way Workplace Campaign

Each year, companies choose to align their philanthropic giving with United Way of Rock River Valley because of our unique ability to bring together partners, donors and volunteers to tackle issues in our community. Using a collective impact approach, United Way focuses on the big picture --- the whole person and the whole community --- to create long-lasting impact, not just short-term charity in Ogle and Winnebago counties. 

Whether you’re a small business, major corporation, or even a nonprofit, you can join hundreds of local organizations that run a workplace campaign. Setting up and running a campaign is simple and we can help you every step of the way.
