Run a Campaign

United Way’s Workplace Campaigns are about bringing people together where they work to tackle our community’s most critical and complex problems – because no one person or organization can do it alone.

Whether a small business, a major corporation, or even a nonprofit organization, you can join the numerous local businesses and organizations that run United Way campaigns each year. Participating in a United Way campaign will give your organization the opportunity to learn firsthand about the needs of Southwest Alabama as well as provide rewarding team building experiences through volunteerism.

Like your business, United Way of Southwest Alabama is about partnerships, setting goals, efficiency, and accountability. For more information about United Way’s financials, please visit our Public Reporting page.

Every workplace campaign is different and can be shaped around your organization’s culture. Setting up and running a campaign is simple, and we can help you every step of the way. Check out our Campaign Coordinator Guide for great campaign ideas, and visit our Campaign Toolkit for campaign resources.
