United Way raises money with the help of more than 5000 volunteers through workplace campaign usually between September and December every year. Volunteers are recruited in workplaces to canvass their peers and encourage giving to support our community.
The annual goal is determined by the Campaign Management Team after preliminary discussions have been held with the public and private sector organizations committed to the campaign. The goal is announced in September. Workplace Campaigns are often organized in the fall and all totals add up to the final achievement. Once contributions are officially reprted and confirmed by United Way, the achievement is announced to volunteers and the general public at the Annual Celebration Breakfast.
