Being a good corporate citizen is important for your brand, for attracting and retaining high quality employees and for building employee morale. We can help you fulfill these goals with a diverse menu of volunteer and engagement opportunities.
One of our most recent partners, a large technology company, was seeking ways to provide the purpose-driven employment experience necessary to attract, retain, and professionally develop their people. We partnered with them through uniquely tying performance (KPIs) to solving one of the Triangle’s most challenging social issues (ending childhood hunger). Social problem-solving not only refines professional skills, it also appeals to employees’ personal desire to connect to the community in a meaningful way. Employee satisfaction, motivation, sense of purpose, and company loyalty increased through this engagement experience. Click here to read about it.
We’re working with companies large and small to:
What does collaboration look like? How does it help? What difference can I make? United Way of the Greater Triangle’s learning opportunities address these questions and many more to give you and your company a better understanding of the current community and United Way’s work within it. You’ll also leave with practical ways to stay involved in community work.
We cannot create change alone. We invite you to increase your impact by becoming a sponsor with United Way of the Greater Triangle (UWGT). UWGT’s sponsorship packages offer a very unique blend of recognition, employee engagement and direct impact on our local community.
Direct community impact is one of the main differentiators of our sponsorship package. Frequently, nonprofit events are fundraisers; ours are designed primarily as engagement and service opportunities, allowing your employees to deepen their understanding of needs in our community.
MLK Day of Service, Day of Action, Day of Caring, and other events of ours, have a direct impact on our collaborative partners and their clients in our area. These events include creating products and kits that are donated to our agency partners, or involve direct volunteerism at an agency to support their collaborative work.
Advantages of Sponsorship
To meet your corporate social responsibility goals, we’ve packaged events that focus on issues of food security, literacy and youth success, innovation and professional development. Please consider which event(s) work best for your recognition and/or employee engagement goals.
