Community Campaign

jimmy

When you give to United Way, we connect your generosity with programs that provide essential safety net services to Northeast Arkansas families in need. Your contributions are more than just financial support, they are real people in our community receiving support at the right time, with the right resources, to create a meaningful impact in the lives of those who need it most. You can join dozens of businesses and individuals across Northeast Arkansas to help make a positive impact in our community! Donations to United Way of Northeast Arkansas stay right here in our community. This focus on local impact allows us to create ripples of positive change in the lives of our neighbors, family members, co-workers, and friends.

CORPORATE GIVING

United Way’s premier partnership opportunity is through Corporate Giving. Companies have the opportunity to partner with United Way at the corporate level in three primary ways: (1) a simple corporate campaign gift of any amount or (2) a corporate employee matching gift that matches the gift of employees during their annual workplace campaign or (3) through an event sponsorship. All gift types are eligible for Corporate Benefits and will receive recognition as listed in our Partnership Guide linked below.

WORKPLACE GIVING

During a workplace campaign, executives and volunteers within a company encourage their co-workers to join United Way’s work through a donation or pledge to United Way's Annual Campaign. Workplace campaigns are the largest share of our fundraising efforts, making up about 60% annually.

CAMPAIGN TEAM

Our campaign team are the volunteers who serve as the heart of the United Way mission! These volunteers are broken up into teams to help us tackle fundraising across our region. Each year, we recruit Loaned Executives to join our team.

United Way's Loaned Executive Program provides local leaders with an opportunity to represent their company as a champion of change within our community. Selected applicants will have the opportunity to learn about our community's most pressing issues facing our ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Restrained, Employed) population and will have the chance to take part in creating change in our community through joining United Way's Fundraising efforts. Applications for this program open up at the beginning of each new year.
