We are serious about impact and accountability and use our relationships across the community along with robust data from the collective system to inform good decision-making and build better, more impactful solutions to poverty.
CSR is your company’s commitment to responsibly manage the social, environmental, and economic effects of its operations in line with public expectations. It often touches every part of the business — from operations to human resources, manufacturing, supply chains, and to health and safety.
United Way helps our corporate partners activate their CSR objectives and engage your employees, customers, and stakeholders in that purpose. Our impact reporting will both identify and amplify your organization’s CSR impact and enhance your brand reputation.
We deliver value to organizations in two primary ways:
Credible philanthropic investment stewardship
When you work with United Way, you can be sure that your philanthropic investments will receive the highest level of stewardship, oversight, and accountability from a trusted, verified, experienced, and credible partner. United Way gives your organization charitable investment capacity and convenience, with the assurance that your contributions are well-directed and align your interests to the community’s needs, both emergent and long-term.
Facilitated employee engagement program delivery
Our robust suite of resources, materials, tools, and guidance for running your workplace campaign gives employees immersive personal and professional development opportunities, team-building exercises, engagement activities, and positive recognition and celebration for the difference they are making in community. Your team can participate through unique experiential learning, networking, leadership development, volunteerism, events, impact speakers, tours, product drives and donations, and philanthropic giving to strengthen your organization’s role in creating a better community.
We will work with you to find the right opportunity to activate your CSR.
