engage employees, build a spirit of teamwork, and increase morale
More and more, employees and customers are attracted to companies that are committed to the community and create opportunities for them to connect with the causes they care about most.

The value of giving
An annual workplace giving program is a great way to engage employees and connect them to your CSR program and values.
Giving to United Way makes a difference. Employees who give are making an investment that benefits the entire community, not just one program, issue, or population. This leads to a stronger, more sustainable place to live and work.
Support from your workplace giving program makes it possible to find innovative solutions to the root causes of our most pressing needs. United Way leverages these contributions by combining them with others and strategically investing in programs and initiatives to maximize the impact for the community. Spreading giving throughout the year via employee payroll deduction or mobile giving makes it easier to increase someone’s donations while still staying within their personal budget.
Giving + volunteering = homerun
You can multiply the impact of a workplace giving program by engaging employees in volunteering. In fact, companies see a 57% reduction in turnover among employees who engage in both volunteering and workplace giving. In addition, many professionals at our workplace giving partners choose to engage with United Way on their own time, joining a giving society or affinity group.
The value of volunteering
For many businesses, offering employees volunteer opportunities conveys the importance of social responsibility to staff and the public, as well as strengthens teams and build a culture of service. United Way of Rhode Island’s volunteer project consulting service curates on-site or off-site activities to:
- Improve teamwork
