Whether you are looking at promoting and enhancing your profile and brand, expanding network connections or engaging employees in a meaningful experience, United Way has a sponsorship opportunity that will meet your business needs.

Corporate Matching Gifts
Many employers offer a matching-gift program, which can double your gift and impact. To find out whether your gift to United Way can be matched and how, please contact your company’s Human Resources department.

Matching gifts for seniors

Your donation to support seniors programs could be matched by local committed donors that will double the impact of your gift. Or your donation could be doubled to fund programs that coordinate volunteers – so vital to many community services. Find out more here.
