Run a Campaign

United Way of South Hampton Roads believes that anyone—regardless of income—can be a philanthropist and give of their money or time to our community. Employee campaigns are a simple way to make a difference while creating a more engaged and connected workforce. Through employee campaigns, United Way provides an opportunity for thousands of individuals and employees from more than 500 South Hampton Roads area businesses to donate a portion of every paycheck to make a positive impact. United Way works with business partners to create a meaningful experience for employees and companies and a lasting change for our community. To get involved in Employee Giving, please contact us.

Employee Campaign Leaders

Employee Campaign Leaders (ECLs) are the critical link between United Way and the companies that run employee campaigns. Every year, an ECL is designated from within each company or organization to lead and inspire his or her peers through campaign. They help to plan, implement and lead the campaign alongside a United Way team member. Being an ECL is an enriching role because they help their co-workers and employees give back to our community, encourage teamwork and foster a positive work environment. They can also gain valuable project management, public speaking and leadership experience. If you are currently an ECL, check out our toolkit for ways to implement and make yourcampaign a success. Not currently an ECL but want to be? Talk to your United Way representative or contact us.
