Orange County United Way brings together an incredible group of change agents—people from great companies who are truly invested in our work to create a stronger, healthier community.
Gaining Hands-on Volunteer and Leadership Experience
We look for strong champions who volunteer their considerable talent and time and, in exchange, benefit from gaining professional development and hands-on leadership experience with our corporate and community partners.
The unique learning experiences we offer have numerous benefits. The work you do will have a direct impact in the lives of struggling families here in Orange County.
Employee Campaign Managers
Your leadership role as an Employee Campaign Manager (ECM) will touch the lives of hundreds of thousands who live in our community. Employee Campaign Managers educate fellow employees about United Way, gain hands-on leadership experience and inform fellow employees about the positive impact that United Way’s work is making in the community.
Loaned Executive Program
Corporate partners lend their best and brightest as loaned executives to Orange County United Way, who give their expertise and energy to assist us in our Workplace Campaign efforts. To see the program in action, watch the video.
Volunteer involvement delivers rewarding community engagement and impactful experiences that have an immediate and long-lasting effect on families, children and individuals in Orange County. Working alongside coworkers and families offers a unique and often fun way to be involved and make a difference in the community.

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.
