Workplace Giving Campaign



Leading the Way graphic

Everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive. That's why United Way mobilizes the caring power of neighbors, businesses, and community partners to lead transformational change here in Yellowstone County. From strengthening local resilience to advancing youth opportunity, and financial security, we're working towards a future where everyone can reach their full potential. 

Join us in LEADING THE WAY to a better future for all!

What is a Workplace Giving Campaign?

In recent years, many working families have faced difficult choices between essential needs like medical care, housing, utilities, and childcare. Numerous essential workers- cashiers, waitstaff, childcare providers, and more- earn just above the Federal Poverty Level, yet still struggle to afford the basics. Together, we are addressing these challenges head-on, helping our neighbors move from surviving to thriving. 

Each year, local businesses come together to raise funds that stay right here in Yellowstone County to enhance lives. Last year, our annual campaign raised more than $900,000 to support vital community programs. More than $4 million was given back! Learn how here. Thanks to supporters like you, we can expand our programs and respond effectively to those in need. 

United Way’s Workplace Campaign runs annually from September to December (or whenever suits your organization best)!

Collaboration and partnership are key to bridging the gap for working families. We can't do this alone. The United Way of Yellowstone County Workplace Giving Campaign is focused on enhancing the quality of life across our community. By Leading the Way, we can continue to make a significant impact and ensure that everyone in Yellowstone County has the opportunity to thrive. 

Participating in the Workplace Giving Campaign positions your organization as a philanthropic leader in Yellowstone County, and we hope you will join us!
