LIVE UNITED in YOUR WORKPLACE
A workplace campaign is an employer-driven program that offers their employees the opportunity to make a charitable contribution.
There are three components that in best practice workplaces can utilize to promote a success campaign:
(1) Choose a Campaign Coordinator (2) Recruit a Campaign Committee (3) Set a Worksite Goal
Employee Pledges to United Way of Henry County & Martinsville is one of our most successful approach to the annual campaign. Yearly gifts can be pledged via our 2022-2023 Campaign Pledge Form, and then dispersed to the United Way incrementally each pay period until a participant meets their goal. This is an excellent way to drive friendly competition between departments or shifts, and facilitate team-building along the way. Consider participating in a company match system to achieve larger goals.
As an employer, one of the best ways to show your company’s dedication to your Workplace Campaign is through providing a Corporate Gift. Additionally, you could accept United Way’s challenge to sign-up as a Pacesetter Company: this requires you commit your corporate pledge prior to the official campaign kickoff.
Hosting a Special Event, a one-time occasion such as a Golf Tournament, is an excellent option to raise additional funds from those that are not interested in participating in payroll deductions. Some events that our partners have participated in the past include Car Washes, Bake Sales, and additional fundraising events. There are many options available, both digital and in-person, that can be accommodated to your company’s size and help personalize your workplace campaign.
Pacesetter Companies have the privilege of being recognized by our community on our Day of Action.
Local Small Business Partnerships
UWHCM does its best to support all local small businesses in Henry County and Martinsville, Virginia. That's why each year we offer local small businesses the opportunity to participate in our annual Community Care Card (CCC). Community Care Cards are a Win-Win Item that UWHCM offers to donors that give at least $130 annually to United Way of Henry County and Martinsville's Annual Campaign / General Fund. There is no direct cost for our local small businesses to participate in the our annual CCC's: all we ask is that a participating business honors the promotion if the coupon is presented to their business during the active period of the CCC.
Campaign Goal (2023-2024)
Each year your local United Way's Volunteers lead our Resource Committee, Board of Directors, and Community Investment Review Panel to plan, review, and approve annual United Way funding for programs and initiatives in Henry County and Martinsville, Virginia. Programs that receive funding from United Way of Henry County and Martinsville undergo a rigorous vetting process to ensure that programs provide measurable, attainable, and lasting long-term solutions to our community's most demanding needs in education, financial stability, and healthy living.
The United Way of HCM's annual campaign takes place from September through July of the following calendar year.
Day of Action kicks-off our campaign by challenging the caring power of our community to commit their time for just a small portion of one single day to serve local agencies in various community development projects and drives.
