The foundation of United Way of the Big Bend is workplace campaigns. Every year, hundreds of organizations across the community ask their employees to support us in our mission of helping our neighbors in their time of greatest need. At the helm of these campaigns are dedicated volunteers like you who work tirelessly on our community’s behalf. Thank you for your help.

Running a United Way campaign in your workplace can be challenging, rewarding, and a great way to bond as a team while helping improve lives in the Big Bend region.  If you are organizing a campaign, are working with a team to run a campaign, or are just curious about what it takes to put a campaign together, you’ve come to the right place!

Below you will find a toolkit of materials designed to assist you in holding your workplace campaign. As always, our UWBB Campaign Managers and Loaned Executives stand ready to help you in any way we can. Thank you for all that you do to encourage others to invest in our mission. You are the reason we can make a difference.

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!

Campaign Communication Tools and Resources

Chances are you probably communicate with your team about your United Way workplace campaign through a presentation. If you are unable to do an in- person presentation, your Campaign Team Manager or Loaned Executive also has the resources to conduct a virtual presentation.  To help you get started, we’ve created a few email headers and scripts. We hope you will make them your own as you Live United!
