Corporate Philanthropy

Invest in more changed lives


From hunger initiatives to housing and safe after-school programs, UWEC can help you invest your dollars in life-changing ways across a spectrum of important social challenges. UWEC understands the community's needs and has the partnerships, expertise, and strategies in place to maximize resources and deliver proven results. When your company stands with us, that means more resources we can leverage to create positive, lasting change for even more people in our community.

Run a United Way Campaign

Help your employees learn about community needs and services by inviting UWEC into your workplace. A United Way campaign offers your employees the benefit of easily supporting their local community by making an annual gift that can be paid in small increments through payroll deduction or online giving. Every employee can feel like a philanthropist…and enjoy the satisfaction that their investment — large or small — will have the greatest impact on the local community. Visit our Campaign Center

Corporate Gift

With so many good causes out there, it can be difficult to know if your dollars are making a difference. UWEC takes the guesswork out of it for you. By partnering with United Way through a corporate gift or corporate matching program, you are investing in multiple local nonprofits that have been vetted and measurable programs that address the region’s most critical needs.

Sponsor an Event

UWEC events are a great way to get involved, make connections, and demonstrate your organization's commitment to the community. There are several ways to promote your brand through our annual events, socials, and special initiatives - with partnerships starting as low as $250. View sponsorship opportunities.


By offering discounted services or donating material goods, you'll help nonprofits focus more of their financial resources on expanding their impact in the community. Whether it's office furniture, books, or helping them save on an event rental fee, you can help local agencies thrive.

Cause Marketing

Enhance your brand, maximize your business, and build customer affinity — all while helping our local community. Together, we can co-create and promote an exciting cause marketing program or event.


Individual Volunteerism

UWEC offers a wide range of meaningful volunteer projects and can connect your teammates with opportunities at 49 local nonprofits. Whether they're looking for one-time or ongoing, in-person or virtual, we'll make it easy to create an important, lasting, and positive impact on our community. Consider offering Volunteer Time Off as part of your company's comprehensive benefits package!

Group Volunteerism

UWEC is here to help make your team-building volunteer opportunity one to remember. Our staff will work closely with you to customize your activity so that everyone will leave energized and inspired. You can clean up a beach, build a trail at a local park, read to children, plant a community garden - the options are endless.

On-Site Volunteerism

UWEC can help you customize an activity where we bring project materials so employees can volunteer on-site. Employees can assemble literacy kits, package snack packs, or host a collection drive for our annual Stuff the Bus initiative. Some kits may be branded to provide additional exposure for your company. 

Skills-Based Volunteerism

We would love to leverage your unique professional skills and talents to assist UWEC and other nonprofit organizations. We may be able to connect you with a seat on a volunteer committee or Board of Directors, or perhaps you can provide a training in your area of expertise for UWEC, our nonprofit partners, or their clients!
