Workplace Campaigns

The United Way of Portage County workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, through payroll deduction, volunteer for local agencies and community service projects and speak out for causes that matter to them. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you're part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.

The workforce campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community. In Portage County, one example is how hundreds of employees take part in United Way's annual Day of Caring, a day where companies allow their employees to lend their time and talents through multiple community services projects throughout the county.  These projects help local nonprofit organizations and programs get needed beautification projects, yard work, renovations and more done and provides an opportunity for the employees to see the work being done in the community and through their engagement.
