Now that you’ve done some planning and set the stage for you campaign, what’s next? This page is chock full of resources, tools, and templates to make your United Way workplace campaign easy and successful. We’ve created resources that are adaptable to whatever you may need as part of your campaign—be it digital or otherwise.
Donors want to feel like the non-profit they’re supporting is impactful and be able to connect with it emotionally. The resources on this page should help you strike that winning balance and meet your fundraising goals—and in doing so, make a positive impact on your community.
One key to a successful campaign is making sure everyone is aware of what’s happening. Be sure to reference our best practices to learn about timing and use our campaign email templates to keep everyone updated.
Whether in person or online, events are a great way to engage your colleagues in your workplace campaign. While virtual events may be different for many people, these resources can help you create engaging digital events.
Kickoff events are a great way to mark the start of your campaign with a hurrah! This guide will walk you through planning and successfully hosting a virtual kickoff event—and offers a templated agenda and speaking notes.
Some donations made through special events qualify for tax receipts. Take a look at our guide and download the right forms for your event. If you aren’t sure, connect with your United Way staff partner.
When people can actively participate to learn about an issue, they feel more connected to it. United Way offers diverse and unique opportunities to engage your co-workers to learn about local social issues and get more involved in helping their community.

Engagement activities poster templates
Customize and add your information to these poster templates so people know the details of your engagement activities. These templates are sized for easy digital sharing and can be printed on 11 x 17 paper to put up around your office too.
After your campaign ends, it’s important to share your results with your co-workers so they know the impact they’ve helped to create. We have a few templates to help you close your campaign with a big thank you!
Customize this template to thank volunteers, your campaign committee, ambassadors, and others for helping run a successful campaign. The template can be used as a poster to print for your office or as a certificate.
Use our email template (last page of this doc!) to share your campaign results and thank everyone for participating. You can also use the graphic on your intranet, online giving system, or other digital systems your organization uses.
Social media is a great way to show your staff, customers, and others how your organization is giving back to your community. Tag United Way in your posts and use #BeUnited—we’d love to share what you’re posting!
