United Way of Portage County wants to ensure that your campaign is fun and successful. This campaign toolkit should give your organization the materials you need to run a great campaign. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 715-341-6740.
Things to Consider with Your Campaign:
Campaign Dates: Friday, Aug. 11, to Friday, Nov. 17 (ALL pledge forms needed for Sweepstakes)
2017 Community Goal: $2.875 Million
Consider showing the United Way Video: This year’s campaign video features the story of Christina and Nicole. Christina receives support through several United Way programs and Nicole works for an agency that receives United Way funding. Together, their story illustrates how United Way helps make the community a better place. The video is available online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pVSuUVAWVo.
Bring in a speaker: United Way staff is always eager to assist in coordinating an Agency Speaker at your workplace to discuss their role in the community. Email Scott at email@example.com to arrange for a speaker.
Every 15 minutes, someone in Portage County is helped through one of United Way's more than 30 funded programs and initiatives.
