Campaign Central
 

Each year, more than 400 local workplaces participate in United Way of Greater Duluth’s Community Fundraising Campaign. This campaign supports local health and human service programs that create real, lasting change for individuals and families in the Greater Duluth area. 

Every year we like to find a new way to describe what we do. This year, HTMarketing helped inspire us to imagine what your gift can become.  Can you be someone's chance at a better life? Can you be hope? Click here to find the I CAN BE posters and brochure.

Participating in the campaign is an excellent way to raise your organization’s public profile and build team spirit among your employees. And United Way makes it easy—with staff support, localized materials, a variety of pledging options, and exciting ideas for employee participation. What’s more, as a business leader, you can rest assured knowing that contributions to the United Way Campaign are invested carefully by a network of experienced volunteers, in programs that produce results in the areas of Education, IncomeHealth and Basic Needs.

Last year, thanks to local workplace and employee campaign contributions:

    • Children’s literacy development was enhanced by getting 57,228 books into homes through Imagination Library, the Big Red Bookshelves and other distribution sites.
    • More than 1,300 working poor individuals and families completed tax returns at no cost, bringing an additional $3 million into the local economy.
