The United Way St. Croix & Red Cedar Valleys (UWSCRCV) workplace Campaign Champions are invaluable partners. By engaging their organizations, Campaign Champions help lead the fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Western Wisconsin. Our Campaign Champions are helping rebuild the future of our community – a better future for each of us.

GETTING STARTED

If you would like to start a campaign at your workplace, UWSCRCV will provide the tools that you need for planning and implementing a campaign. With the help and guidance of the staff, you can run a successful campaign even if you have never participated in the past.  To get started, contact Steve McCarthy, Executive Director for an overview and consultation. You will be most successful by offering employees the option of having a modest amount deducted from their check each pay period. Most businesses then send payments to us on a monthly or quarterly basis.
