EMPLOYEE CAMPAIGN COORDINATOR
The Employee Campaign Coordinator for an organization plays the most important role in the success of an organization's employee campaign. This volunteer's role is to organize a successful employee campaign by working with the CEO/local Chief Executive, the campaign team, and United Way to increase workplace giving.
United Way encourages local businesses and organizations to select valued employees or retirees to participate in the Loaned Executive Program part-time for about 12 weeks. Loaned Executives assist in implementing workplace campaigns at local businesses and work on other campaign-related projects, such as Community Day and Day of Caring.
SMALL BUSINESS INITIATIVE VOLUNTEER
Small Business Initiative Volunteers call and visit local small businesses to share with them information about United Way and ways their business and employees can get involved by contributing to United Way.
Many of our United Way Partner Agencies, as well as other human service, social services, and numerous, diverse nonprofit organizations depend on volunteers to fill many roles.
Consider your time, talents and passion when looking for the right match. We don’t have a formal volunteer recruitment center, but we can discuss your interests and offer some suggestions and contacts. Call us (740) 773-3280.
