START A CAMPAIGN

Great things happen when we Live United.

 

Why We Campaign

One individual or organization can’t solve our community’s issues alone, especially in these tough economic times. That’s why United Way of the Brazos Valley is so important. Working together we can change lives. One way we can pull together to make an impact in the Brazos Valley is through our annual Community and Workplace Campaigns.

What is a Workplace Campaign?

United Way of the Brazos Valley partners with companies of all sizes and industry types across the Brazos Valley and in various industries that have a passion to give back to the Brazos Valley community.

Through Workplace Campaigns, thousands of employees from more than 120 area businesses donate a portion of their paycheck to make a positive impact in the Brazos Valley. United Way works with business partners to create a meaningful experience for employees and companies to make a lasting change for our community.

Community Campaigns account for the majority of the funding United Way is able to invest in the Brazos Valley. In fact, contributions raised through Community Campaigns provide $325,000 in funding to impact more than 60,000 people in the Brazos Valley.

Start a Campaign

Each Workplace Campaign has an Internal Coordinator who acts as the contact person within the workplace that helps coordinate the campaign. 

  1. The first step is a meeting between you and United Way to discuss your goals as a company.
  2. United Way then gives you support and advice on how to run a successful Community Campaign at your company. 

If you would like to visit more about starting a campaign or hosting an employee engagement event in your workplace please contact Alison Prince, President and CEO, at aprince@uwbv.org or by calling 979-696-4483 x 101.
