Sponsored Employees

Not sure how your workplace can help United Way, and your community? Sponsored employees are one fantastic way to make a change and earn some good will in your community. With the sponsored employee program one (or more!) of your employees are able to temporarily join the United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk team, in order to make your community a better place.

By providing an employee for a short period of time, they are able to contribute to United Way and the various funded programs in your community. A sponsored employee is paid by their regular employer, while assisting with the day-to-day activity of United Way. This allows the employee to receive training in order to assist on a campaign, as well as build experience. All while making connections with other agencies and sponsored employees.

If you can’t spare an employee, but still want to make a contribution, your business can provide funding for United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk to hire a short term employee in your name. By providing a sponsored employee you are helping United Way make a change. Another way you can make a difference is by conducting a workplace campaign, which can get all of your employees involved with United Way!
