Tools to Help Run Your 2023-2024 Campaign
Whether your Employee Giving Campaign runs as a traditional campaign or your company prefers to run theirs electronically, this 2023-2024 Campaign Toolkit provides resources that fit both styles of campaigns. Please see those resources below and feel free to download and use them to make your campaign as successful as possible.
Remember, when posting anything related to your workplace campaign on social media, please use the hashtag #UnitedWayRRV so that we can share it and recognize you on our social media channels!
In addition to these tools, United Way staff remain available to assist your campaign in any way.
Contact Octavia Williams or Kayla Lewers for additional assistance or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Call us at 815-968-5400.
The following materials can be printed out or shared digitally to elaborate on United Way's work in our community.
2023 Employee Giving Campaign poster
Print and hang this poster in your break room, common area, or any part of your office to recognize and celebrate your employees' generosity and commitment to United Way and our community.
This poster highlights the services that United Way's 988 and 211 helplines bring to our community, made possible by the donations of our generous supporters.
A list of special event ideas to run during your campaign to reward and celebrate your employees' generosity.
Distribute this flyer to staff to explain what United Way of Rock River Valley does in our community. It also includes a FAQ section.
Literacy Project "20 for 20" flyer
Too few children in Winnebago County are reading at grade level. United Way, along with numerous partners, is looking to change that. Print this sheet and distribute it to your employees to encourage them to read to their loved ones—and to represent United Way's efforts in addressing the low literacy rate in our community.
United Way COVID-19 response information sheet
The ripple effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still being felt today. Locally, thanks to the generous donations of supporters over the past several years, United Way was able to support local organizations by raising more than $1 million to go directly toward pandemic related assistance and support. If you've run Employee Giving Campaigns over the course of the pandemic, please share this sheet with your employees to show them the impact they've made.
This pledge form can be printed and filled out by employees to give to United Way. If you would like us to deliver pledge forms to your company, contact your Relationship Manager, Octavia Williams or Kayla Lewers.
The 2023-2024 United Way pledge form gives your employees the option of payroll deduction, one-time giving, and plenty of other giving options and specifications. If they'd rather give online, please sign up for ePledge or visit our workplace giving portal or online donation form. To sign up for ePledge or have your company added to our giving portal, email email@example.com or call 815-968-5400.
Campaign pledge report envelope
When returning your pledge forms to United Way, please fill out and include our campaign pledge report envelope in order for us to accurately attribute your donations to your workplace campaign.
