To supplement our fundraising efforts, local businesses and organizations lend or sponsor talented people to work full-time for 12 weeks. Campaign Executives serve as spokespersons, community advocates and fundraisers, assisting local employers in conveying the work, message and vision of United Way of Pierce County.
These individuals not only strengthen their professional skills, build valuable relationships and enhance their visibility— they are essential in helping to raise millions to help children, families and individuals in Pierce County.
This program provides a unique opportunity for professional development of new and emerging leaders by fully immersing the staff member in an opportunity where they are responsible for working with 10-20 local businesses to conduct United Way workplace giving campaigns. Campaign Executives are responsible for organizing presentations at work-places, public speaking, promoting company fundraising efforts, keeping track of communications, learning new technologies and collecting and accounting for contributions.
