Sponsored Employees

Creating employees that care

The Sponsored Employee Program is a unique engagement opportunity for potential leaders in your organization. Confident, innovative and with a commitment to creating a more vibrant community in which to do business, Sponsored Employees contribute to the success of our annual fundraising campaign.

Get involved:

Provide a Sponsored Employee

Under the management and guidance of a professional fundraiser, Sponsored Employees play a crucial role in supporting and inspiring more than 700 workplace campaigns across the region. Sponsored Employees also have the opportunity to develop valuable skills, such as public speaking, time management, project management, customer relations and teamwork.

Employees are seconded for 15 weeks from September to December. A seconded employee’s salary and benefits continue to be paid by their employer. Day-to-day management is the responsibility of United Way.

Provide financial support

A financial gift of $15,000 gives United Way the flexibility to hire an individual with specific skills to support our fundraising efforts.
