Employee campaigns are the heart of the United Way fundraising system. It is only through the mobilization of hundreds of modest employee gifts, contributed over the course of the year through payroll deduction, that United Way is able to raise the majority of dollars that it does to support the needed services of the local community.
Each year, starting in early fall, we run our official community fundraising campaign. Many businesses in Windham County conduct a workplace campaign to benefit United Way of Windham County and/or contribute to United Way in some way.
Giving through your workplace is one of the easiest and best ways to support the United Way of Windham County. Often employees elect to donate through payroll deduction, giving a little bit each pay period. These donations, when pooled together, are invested to create HOPE across Windham County.
