Workplace giving has long been a highly valued tradition offering benefits to employers, employees, nonprofit organizations and the people they help. It is one of the most simple and effective ways for employees to give back to their community. And, it is one of the most significant resources employers offer to address community needs.
Here at United Way of Central Washington we conduct more than 400 workplace campaigns in businesses and organizations around our county. Contributing a little through payroll deduction each month adds up to big benefits for our local community. More than $1.5 million is raised annually through United Way's workplace campaigns, and invested by local volunteers in effective local social service programs.
This resource improves the lives of people across Yakima and Kittitas Counties.
The workplace campaign is especially beneficial to employees. They feel good about giving, knowing that their donations are improving people's lives in our community. Also, many employers have matching gift programs set up, so the employer multiplies an employee's contribution to an organization.
