What's a Campaign?
A campaign is simply a company's fundraising effort. Typically the easiest and best way is to appoint a small team of volunteers in the company to determine how that would work best with your company's schedule and culture. However, our United Way staff are always available to meet with your leadership, a team of volunteers, or anything else to smooth the path for you and your company.
It's always good to help people understand what they're being invited to give to. United Way staff can be there to explain our work and how it affects other organizations as well as the community in general. We can also arrange for one or more of our funded agencies to explain their work. It's up to whatever works for your company!
You can make a difference here at home through the United Way of Central Louisiana!
