Involve Your Company
Successful United Way campaigns are a mixture of fun, enthusiasm, broad-based participation and careful planning. But the best campaigns have something else in common: a thorough understanding of the United Way of Fort Smith Area—serving western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma.
A guide, Steps for a Successful Campaign, will introduce you to information and materials for an educational, fun and successful campaign. It’s a quick study in how to plan and organize your campaign. The United Way has posters, pledge cards, promotional items and brochures. In addition, the United Way staff can help set up presentations with volunteers or agency directors and arrange for on-site agency tours. Click here to see campaign materials.
We are looking forward to working with you. Thank you for investing in what matters. For more information on becoming a company that makes a difference in our community, please contact Maggie Henson, Resource Development Director at 479-782-1311 or click here to send a message.
