We Value Our Corporate Partners

Our community trusts United Way Blackhawk Region as its philanthropic partner because we have a unique finger on the pulse of our region’s needs.

Thanks to our donors’ investment, we help ensure children get a strong start in school, youth are equipped to thrive in the job market, and people of all ages have an opportunity to improve their economic status and live a healthy life.

We work with partners to go beyond temporary fixes and single-issue solutions. We steward generosity and direct dollars where they’re needed most, to achieve the greatest impact.

Partner With Us

When you partner with United Way, you create opportunities to engage your employees more deeply in their communities. You activate the process of permanent, positive change. And you connect your brand to a unique, trusted nonprofit.  

United Way is one of the few remaining not-for-profit vehicles to pool investments in order to create a greater return on the individual investment. Your investment is unique because of our ability to mobilize resources, individuals, and institutions in a combined effort. Leveraging our relationships with such a diverse group of players produces greater results for all.

Our promise to you is that we will invest in the efforts that achieve the greatest results. We will evaluate and reward results, not just effort. We will govern ourselves at the highest degree of accountability and transparency. And, finally, we pledge to efficiently steward your dollars, putting the maximum amount of resources into the work that changes peoples’ lives and communities.

Together, we can help you boost employee engagement by:

  • Hosting an annual United Way workplace campaign 
  • Helping your Team GET CONNECTED to local volunteer opportunities  
  • Sponsorship of a community impact-related product
