COMPANY COMMITMENT – HOW TO GET STARTED

Whether you are an employer wanting to loan an executive or are interested in becoming a loaned executive yourself,  please fill the form below.

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT

Some companies are unable to loan an employee but choose to provide a financial sponsorship.  By providing a sponsorship of $5,000, you will enable UWBB to hire one individual to represent your company during campaign time.  Sponsoring an LE also sends a powerful message about your organization’s deep commitment to our community.  For more information, please contact Molly Lord at the United Way office at 850.414.0853 or Molly@uwbb.org.
