The United Way workplace campaign has been called one of the greatest social inventions in American history. Working together with employers and local volunteers each year, United Way invites people to advance the common good and create opportunities for a better life for all by helping to fund the local programs that provide assistance.
United Way donors can feel confident that their gifts are truly helping those who need our help most in our local communities. United Way’s local Board of Directors is focused on ensuring that our donors’ funds are efficiently and effectively used to bring about positive change at the community level. The funds are distributed by volunteers who choose the programs that are making a difference. Because of you, United Way of Escambia County is able to help all of us enjoy a better place to raise our families and conduct our businesses. Click here for all your Workplace Campaign resources.
