Making the Case for Sponsorship
When your company joins the ranks of United Way corporate partners and supporters, it is aligned with companies committed to creating Impact and improving lives in the communities in which its customers and employees live and work.
United Way’s sponsorship opportunities are strategically tied to our Impact areas of Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs. Through this approach, we connect your support to our work to ensure more individuals and families have access to a quality education, a family-sustaining income, good health and critical resources during times of crisis.
