Workplace Giving

Running a workplace campaign is good for your company, your employees, and our community. 

Volunteers at a elementary school campaign
  • Customers are more likely to trust and be loyal to a company that is involved in and cares about their community.

  • Focusing your organization toward a common goal energizes employees, builds morale, and increases teamwork.

  • A campaign empowers employees to learn about the needs in our community, and gives them an easy, meaningful way to be a part of the solution.

  • Giving to United Way is a smart investment. It provides the most efficient and effective way to make a difference in our community – you and your employees can give with confidence.

Every campaign is different and customizable to your organization's needs and culture. Getting a campaign up and running is simple and we can help you every step of the way. Let us get you started! 


How your organization can get involved.

Your participation makes a difference. There are several ways your organization can become a United Way partner.

Make a Donation or Grant – Contributions support our programs, serve as an incentive for others, and are typically tax deductible.

Become a Sponsor – Your support makes events and other special projects possible, while providing visibility for your company.

Run a Workplace Campaign – Give your employees an easy, effective way to get involved and support their community.

Volunteer on a United Way Committee - Volunteers are at the core of United Way, and our committees influence the scope and direction of our work.

Engage in Volunteerism – Volunteering on projects builds teams and deepens community connections.

Planned & Stock Giving

Make an impact for years to come by supporting United Way’s endowment. Planned giving lets you express your values, while typically receiving significant financial, tax, and estate planning benefits.


Endowment options include:

  • Wills and testamentary bequests

  • Outright gifts of cash or securities

  • Personal property or real estate

  • Life insurance policies, dividends or benefits

  • Charitable Trusts (retaining lifetime income for you and your beneficiaries while providing a deferred gift to United Way of Lane County)

  • Lower your tax bill by directing a portion of your IRA minimum distribution as a charitable gift.
