When engaged and enthusiastic workers who share common goals work together to raise funds and awareness, the result is happier, more loyal employees—and it can even boost the bottom line.
United Way fundraising campaigns take place in hundreds of local companies. We’re the most trusted workplace giving choice among OC businesses, conducting more than 1,000 Workplace Campaigns which reach nearly 40,000 donors. And every dollar raised stays right here, funding one of the over 50 Community Impact programs United Way delivers in Orange County.
By partnering with us to run a Workplace Campaign, you’re providing opportunities for employees to give back to the community. You’d be surprised at the number of people who want to do good, but don’t know how to begin. By starting a Workplace Campaign, you’ll engage employees in fun fundraising activities while satisfying your corporate social responsibility goals.
Let’s get started!

Improving Lives and Strengthening our Community
For more than 30 years, UPS has supported the work of United Way. UPS is dedicated to improving lives and strengthening communities. Within these communities, they’re addressing important issues such as early-grade reading, high school graduation rates and financial stability.
Since 1982, UPS and their employees – both active and retired – have donated more than $1 billion to United Way’s across the country, becoming the first company to reach this philanthropic milestone.
And their efforts have not gone unrecognized. Twice UPS has won United Way’s Spirit of America award, the highest national honor for corporate involvement and commitment to building better communities.
