Campaign leader toolkit
This is for those who step up to unite their workplaces for good
WELCOME, campaign leaders
As a campaign leader, you've decided to help those in our communities who need it most.
As you speak at your company, remember that you're not simply asking your colleagues to donate... you're rallying them to join a united solution. What does that mean? It means working together to invest in proven programs, local nonprofits, and an equitable future. Here are the tools you'll need to run an effective workplace campaign.
Thank you for partnering with us and making a lasting difference.
Why do we help? Because we all need help sometimes.
Below are videos and tools to share with colleagues about why and how United Way works to create racial equity and opportunity for all Rhode Islanders.
