Businesses are central to United Way of Mesa County’s success. Local companies provide key leadership on our board, insight on community issues, volunteers who take a hands-on role on projects, and the financial resources to make progress towards building strong families, promoting health and increasing self-reliance.

How can my business help?

United Way of Mesa County has the capability to bring philanthropy to your business in many forms. One of the most popular ways to get involved are what we call workplace campaigns. These bring people in local companies together to take on our community’s most difficult issues. Whether you’re a small business, a major corporation or even a nonprofit, you can join nearly 100 other local businesses and organizations that run workplace campaigns each year.

A workplace campaign allows an employee to give through their paycheck. Even $1 per pay cycle can go a long way towards impacting an individual’s life here in Mesa County.

Every campaign is different and can be shaped around your organization’s culture. Setting up and running a campaign is simple and we can help you every step of the way.
