Workplace Campaign

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 of Windham County 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.

United Way of Windham County's COVID-19 Response

Instead of downed power lines and washed away roads and bridges, Windham County has faced massie unemployment and increased demand for basic needs such as food, shelter, and healthcare. More than people-power, Windham County needed financial relief for displaced workers, food insecure households, and business owners forced to close shops. Luckily for all of Windham County, our community steps up!

The United Way of Windham County has distributed more than $63,000 to local Non-Profits and Businesses! We have supported food shelves in Bellows Falls, Wilmington, Putney and others. We have granted much needed funds to Arts and Cultural organizations, so they can continue to make Windham County a more beautiful and equitable place to live and enjoy. The United Way of Windham County's COVID-19 Response Fund secured grants for downtown businesses in need of rental assistance, CARES organizations, Youth programs....this list goes on!
