And we don’t make you go it alone, we offer training and support that can be customized to meet your needs. We will help you build and employee fundraising team, offer tips to running a great campaign and help your community fundraising goals. We have a yearly campaign kickoff event at Dickey-Stephens Park, which provides our community with a chance to learn about all of United Way’s federated agencies and get excited about the upcoming campaign. Our Speaker’s Bureau brings leaders from the top local nonprofits to your workplace to help employees hear firsthand about important community needs and make more informed giving choices. Each year, the United Way staff offers a campaign coordinator training session to give coordinators the tools they need to run an effective employee campaign.
Motivating your employees to support the Heart of Arkansas United Way, its initiatives and its nonprofit federated agencies is crucial to the success of your workplace campaign. What’s the key to getting their support? Arming them with the information they need to make informed decisions. The Heart of Arkansas United Way offers many resources to help you inform, education, and encourage potential contributors.
The Heart of Arkansas United Way’s Speakers Bureau is a great way to connect corporate employees with the nonprofit agencies who benefit from their generous contributions. Speakers, campaign leaders and volunteers can effectively bring the United Way message to your organization by making brief presentations at group meetings. We can also send representatives from our nonprofit partners to speak or demonstrate their services.
Tours of our nonprofit federated agencies can give employees first-hand knowledge of how their donation helps people in the community.
