Key Dates and Contacts 2012 Campaign Kickoff Monday, August 27 Bell Auditorium 12:00 - 1:30 pm Loaned Professional Program August 20 - November 9 United Way Campaign Department 706.724.5544 Rina Powell ext. 8928 Stef Frickey ext. 8930 Kim Grimes ext. 8929 www.uwcsra.org


10 STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN Call your United Way representative or Rina Powell at 706.724.5544 with any questions about your campaign. We’re here to help! 1. RECRUIT YOUR TEAM 

Find co-workers to help you. Be sure to include people who are enthusiastic and have a good relationship with their colleagues. Try to make the sure the team represents the diversity of the work force (i.e. gender, ethnicity, job responsibilities, etc.). Don’t overlook retirees-they would enjoy being included.

Include representatives from your management team to assist in soliciting management; communications department to help promote the campaign through company communications, newsletters, and events; payroll department to assist in processing the pledges and providing up-to-the minute results and reports on your progress.

2. SET YOUR GOAL 

Reviewing last year’s results is always helpful to determine your campaign’s greatest area of potential. If the average gift amount was low, encourage more employees to give through payroll deduction. If participation has been low, an emphasis on recruiting new donors might be wise.

Understanding your campaign’s untapped potential will help you set a goal that is challenging, yet achievable. Remember to structure incentives and contests— such as donated gift certificates or merchandise for a raffle—to encourage the desired results for giving.

Increasing the number of leadership givers will also cause your totals to soar.

Consider setting a separate goal and providing incentives for contributions to the Community Impact Fund.

6


3. INVOLVE YOUR CEO 

Discuss your campaign plans with your CEO, obtaining necessary approval for ideas such as day-off incentives for giving.

Schedule a company-wide kickoff and a leadership-giving meeting. Encourage your CEO to attend and address employees. His or her attendance will provide a strong endorsement.

Ask your CEO to send a letter, voicemail, or an email message to all employees. When he or she invites them to join in a response to the needs of the community, the message is a powerful one (see sample letter on pages 13-14). Also consider having the CEO recognize your donors giving 25-years plus.

4. TRAIN CAMPAIGNERS 

Recruiting colleagues who are willing to ask co-workers for their pledges is a critical part of every successful campaign. Be sure to meet with and train campaigners, providing the information and inspiration that will motivate them. Enlist one campaigner for every 30-40 employees.

At the meeting: *Show the United Way Campaign video. *Familiarize campaigners by taking a virtual tour t h r o u g h United Way of the CSRA’s web site. (www.uwcsra.org). *Lead a short question-and-answer session with your United Way representative. *Feature a speaker from United Way’s network of program speakers showing the impact your contribution makes on our community. * Tour a local funded program by the campaign.

7

Give, Advocate, Volunteer!


5. TOURS & SPEAKERS 

Tours are a great way for employees to experience Agency programs firsthand. Not only are employees impacted by seeing personally how their contributions are making a difference locally, but they also gain invaluable insight about the agencies’ goals and outcomes, which are critical to understanding the purpose of each program.

Tour participants have the opportunity to meet people who have been given a ―handup‖ from the programs, not a ―hand out‖, and who are once again productive members of society.

Those who take tours return to the office inspired once they observe how the needs in our community are being met by United Way funding. Encourage them to share their experiences with other staff members during your internal campaign meetings.

If employees are unable to easily get away from the work site, another option is to have a United Way or Agency representative speak to employees about the programs that United Way supports.

6. ORGANIZE A LEADERSHIP MEETING 

A strong campaign begins with strong leadership giving. Ideally the leadership campaign should run in advance of your general United Way campaign. Announcing the results during the campaign kickoff generates excitement, builds momentum, and inspires others to give.

Start the campaign with a meeting of management-level employees during which the CEO asks employees to support United Way with leadership gifts of $500 or more. Be sure that your leadership chair is a leadership giver, and that he or she plans a separate event for potential leadership level donors.

Encourage your campaign team to talk about the campaign with co-workers to create awareness and build excitement for your upcoming kickoff.

8


7. START THE COUNTDOWN WITH PROMOTIONS 

To build excitement and create awareness, use our resources. Some great ideas for two or three weeks before kickoff are: *Distribute the communication from your CEO to announce the campaign company-wide. *Compile stories about co-workers who benefited from—or volunteer for—United Way funded programs. If employees are willing, share their stories and feature them on some of your flyers, on voice and e-mail mes sages, and/or on your company intranet. *Listen. Then encourage questions. If you don’t know the answer, say so, and call your United Way representative for help. Respond promptly.

8. ASK FOR THE PLEDGE 

Do you know the number one reason people don’t give? THEY WERE NOT ASKED!

Present your colleagues with pledge forms, along with a brief reminder of United Way’s values to the community and the thousands of people receiving help each day.

Emphasize again that payroll deductions are the easiest way to give.

Ask employees to make a pledge.

Ask your co-workers to sign the pledge form and return it to you or take a moment to complete the E-pledge, if applicable.

Remind employees that pledge forms and pledge amounts are confidential.

Don’t forget to ask those employees who will be away from the workplace on the day of your event, so they can be included in campaign totals and drawings, if applicable.

9


9. IMPORTANT LAST STEPS 

Thank your supporters. One of the most important things you can do as a campaign coordinator is thank all of the people who helped make the campaign a success. A letter from your CEO to all employees and a personal note from you to your campaign team will let people know their efforts are appreciated. Additional thank you ideas are located in this guide. (See page 23.).

Report your results to your employees and to United Way. Knowing the results helps employees feel good about the amount they’ve raised together.

Prompt, complete reporting to United Way also ensures that your company will get the recognition it deserves, as we include your company in community campaign totals.

Talk to your United Way representative about ways to complete your campaign results so they can be reported promptly and funds can be disbursed to network of local programs. Don’t forget to include Caring Club Members, Leadership Givers and Designation information.

10. THEN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR... 

Familiarize new hires with your company’s caring culture and explain your company’s participation in the United Way Campaign. Ask for a pledge at the time of hire. (New Hire packets are available through your Campaign Representative.)

Use your company’s email, employee newsletters, Intranet, or bulletin boards to share stories about people who benefited from United Way’s network of funded programs.

BEST PRACTICES How to Increase Participation 

A 10—15 minute presentation by United Way at already scheduled group meetings is the number one way to raise awareness, educate, inform, and inspire your associates. These can be coordinated through your United Way representative by calling 706.724.5544. We can do multiple presentations during any shift at any area workplace.

Have a special event or ―fun‖-raiser to supplement your payroll deduction pledges, raise awareness and build camaraderie.

Provide incentives and prizes. Sometimes we all need a little dangling carrot to allow us to take action.

FOOD ALWAYS DRAWS A CROWD. Provide refreshments at your United Way meetings. Coffee, doughnuts, or fruit for morning events; pizza at lunch; and cookies or brownies at afternoon meetings.

Communicate the support and endorsement of CEO / upper management.

15

Establish friendly inter-department competitions, such as an office pizza party for the department that raises the most or has the highest participation.

Have a pot-luck luncheon, office pool or casual dress day to benefit United Way.

Find an associate who has been personally affected by a United Way program (either in receiving assistance or in volunteering) who is willing to share his/her experience. Personal testimonials, especially from peers, go a LONG way.

Incorporate United Way pledge forms into your new employee orientation packet and allow new hires to complete a pledge form when they sign on.

In addition to presentations, conduct an e-mail blitz throughout your campaign highlighting the impact their United Way gift makes. Post United Way announcements and stories on bulletin boards, in employee publications and staff lounges.


How to Increase Participation 

Stress giving via payroll deduction. It is the easiest way to give.

Encourage donors to increase their gift by 10% or $1 a week over last year’s pledge.

Promote giving at Leadership level when and where appropriate.

Structure incentives so they are based on giving levels.

Easy Incentives & Prizes Sometimes the best incentives or prizes don’t cost much. Here are some low-cost/no-cost raffle items you can use if you’re working on a shoestring budget. Get them from your vendors, your own company, or local businesses.  Casual dress days  Extra paid vacation day  “Sleep-in” or “Long lunch” passes  T-shirts, sweatshirts, company gear  Shares of company stock  Special parking spot  Restaurant gift certificates  Sports/Show/Movie tickets  Free oil changes  Lottery Tickets  Open/FREE vending machines  Unused corporate frequent flier miles or hotel stays

EDUCATING & SHOWING THE IMPACT FEATURE A VIDEO These days, it’s easy to create a short 30-second video with an iPhone or a FlipCam. Consider recording the CEO asking for support or featuring an agency tour that you have been on. You can also ask a fellow employee to share their reasons for supporting United Way.

ADD MORE STORIES Request that a speaker from a United Way agency attend your kickoff event. Consider asking someone who has directly been helped or even an employee who has been impacted by United Way speak during your campaign. SHOW THE IMPACT OF A GIFT Give employees the opportunity to tour a United Way agency or participate in a volunteer project so they can see first-hand where their gift is going.

INCLUDE STORIES People love stories about people. When you send an email, newsletter, thank you, etc., include a short story about how a gift to United Way is helping someone in the community. Visit us online to find stories to include in your communications (see a sample below).

YEAR-ROUND EDUCATION Show your employees how a gift to United Way is helping throughout the year. Communicate volunteer opportunities and current news through the company newsletter, intranet or by email.

SAMPLE STORY A local restaurant hostess shared her testimony of how United Way of the CSRA 2-1-1 made a significant impact on her life. She had a co-worker named ―Kate‖ who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. With no family or known resources in the area, Kate was distraught about her future. Luckily, the hostess and other workers rallied around Kate to help her find respite. This desire to help led the hostess to the American Cancer Society who referred her to United Way of the CSRA 2-1-1. Accurately assessing her situation and needs, the Information and Referral Specialist directed the caller to The Lydia Project where she received much needed resources and services. Ultimately, Kate’s health deteriorated and she was no longer able to work. She moved home to Florida where she could be cared for by her family. Because of her experience with 2-1-1 in Augusta, the hostess was able to advise Kate’s family to contact their local 2-1-1 in Tampa for the resources and help she needed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS When should our campaign take place? Most campaigns take place between early August and mid-November, but they can happen any time of the year when a company’s employee base is largest. How long should our campaign last? Most campaigns can be wrapped up in two weeks or less. The goal is to distribute and collect pledge cards while United Way’s message is still fresh in employees’ minds. When does payroll deduction start? Payroll deduction usually runs from January 1 through December 31. Some companies use their fiscal year as their schedule for payroll deduction. United Way does not set your payroll schedule; it is a company decision. I am limited on time to devote to a campaign. How can I work it into my busy schedule? Use your United Way representative extensively. He or she is there to help you every step of the way. Let him or her know your limitations and come up with a plan together to make it easier for you. Another way to ease the strain is to recruit a committee. Assign tasks and assume a management role. Most importantly, start planning early. The earlier you start, the less you will rush at the last minute.

21

How can I reach employees with multiple shifts and/or multiple locations? Bring the campaign to them. Try using emails, voicemails and letters from the CEO to get the word out. Bring balloons with a United Way message to their desks or consider having a competition between locations. Designate one room as the ―United Way room‖ and have participants play games on their breaks and turn in pledge forms for prizes. Use your company’s intranet to provide information and results. How can I make the campaign fun with little to no budget? There are many fun games and activities to make the campaign interactive and educational. Ask employees to bring in food for a potluck; use ―flee at three‖ or ―sleep in late‖ coupons; parking spots; or even lunch with the CEO as incentives. You can also show the impact of United Way by inviting a speaker to your kickoff or encouraging employees to visit an agency. Finally, icorporate games and contests like bingo, United Way trivia, tricycle races hula hoop contests or office putt-putt. Who decides where the donors’ dollars go? Local volunteers — people like you — invest the money United Way receives. Every year, United Way recruits and trains community volunteers who strategically invest donated funds to our member agencies. These volunteers learn the agency’s mission, assess the impact of their programs and organizational strength and makes sure United Way dollars are invested wisely.


MANAGING OBJECTIONS Your potential donors may have questions or concerns regarding United Way or your campaign. Your sincerity and personal commitment are the best tools to use when responding to an objection. I already give directly to XYZ charity. Why should I give to United Way? Giving is a personal decision, and it’s great that you’ve found an organization/cause with which you identify. One thing to keep in mind is United Way works across hundreds of causes, so when you make a gift to United Way, you are not only supporting one agency or one cause, but a variety of needs. I encourage you to take a look at United Way’s brochure to see the vast array of nonprofits United Way supports. Nobody I know uses these services. With so many people receiving help through United Way, we’re all bound to know someone who has been assisted through United Way. United Way agencies work across a broad spectrum of services including services related to health, children and seniors. When we give to United Way, we’re often helping people closer to home than we think. Take a look at United Way’s website, uwcsra.org, for a complete listing of United Way agencies and services. I can’t give a lot so my donation won’t have an impact. Every dollar really does make a difference. The great thing about United Way is with so many people choosing to help, when we each give a little, it has a huge impact. I hope you will consider supporting our region through United Way in a way that makes sense for you.

22

I’m concerned about scandals. Every United Way is local and independent, including United Way of the CSRA. Our United Way has a local board of directors that makes decisions that are right for our region, and United Way of the CSRA has never experienced financial abuse. Another safeguard is the wide range of volunteers who give their time to help keep United Way so efficient. These volunteers monitor the management and performance of United Way and the agencies United Way funds.

My spouse gives at his/her company. Why should I give to United Way? Thank you for your spouse’s donation! Many couples choose to give at both workplaces because they want to participate with their coworkers. It’s also a great way to support your individual companies.

United Way supports an organization or a cause that I don’t like. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your decision to donate. Although you may not care for one agency, United Way supports more than 40 programs that serve people in our region. These programs help meet the needs of our community—from child abuse prevention to elderly care. Without the support of the community through United Way, many of these programs would not exist.


SAYING “THANKS”! Saying “thank you” is one of the most important pieces of your campaign. People want to feel appreciated when they have done something positive. Here are a couple of ways to show how important they are to the success of the campaign. * Candy Gram - Pack of gum: Thanks for ―chewzing‖ to give! - Chocolate chip cookies: Thanks for ―chipping‖ in for United Way! - See more examples on next page.

* Leave a balloon at desks/chairs * Ice cream social * Thank you letter from the CEO or management * Pizza party * Send an ecard

THANK YOU,

* Hold a special thank you breakfast

Employee Campaign Coordinator for going above and beyond to make your campaign successful. Your tireless efforts are appreciated. You are helping to make our community stronger and healthier through United Way. Thank you!

SETTING AND ACHIEVING GOALS BE PREPARED That’s the motto of the Boy Scouts. Develop a plan of action that ensures all associates are educated about what United Way does and are asked to give. The plan should include obtainable goals for your workplace to achieve and to measure the success of your efforts.

Understand your campaign’s untapped potential. Find areas where improvement is possible in your workplace campaign.

Set a participation goal. To ensure that associates do not feel pressured, it is not recommended to set a 100% participation goal. Set a dollar amount goal by reviewing last year’s average gift and set a realistic monetary goal. Increasing participation will help you reach the monetary goal.

Set a goal of 100% ask. Make sure that everyone receives a pledge form. The most effective way is through distribution of pledge forms and brochures during United Way presentations at staff meetings. .

Set a goal of 100% pledge form collection. This ensures that everyone has at least CONSIDERED a gift to United Way and made a decision. It DOES NOT mean they should be forced to give. Set a deadline for forms to be returned and ensure that all pledge forms, even if not filled out, are collected.

Establish your campaign dates and develop a realistic plan to achieve your goals. It is recommended a workplace campaign runs and wraps up within two weeks. Choose which of the best practices and ―fun‖ raisers works for your company. Schedule United Way presentations in advance and plan the publicity efforts that will surround your campaign.

An increased high school graduation rate means people who are better prepared to join the work force and an increase in the people who are self-sufficient. With an annual gift of $1,000 or more, members of The Quill Society and The Tocqueville Society recognize the many needs in our community and are committed to strengthening United Way’s ability to meet those needs.

SURVIVAL TOOLS

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT UNITED WAY OF THE CSRA 35


QUESTIONS & ANSWERS Q: What does United Way do? A: United Way of the CSRA raises funds to support over 40 health and human service programs through our 23 partner agencies. With your help, United Way brings together the resources of our community – volunteers, funds, knowledge, and YOU – to help those most in need. Q: I’ve never been helped by an agency. Why should I contribute? A: While it is true some of the services provided by United Way funded programs are for the poor and those in need, there are many programs that provide necessary community services such as the afterschool programs of agencies like the Boys and Girls Clubs or the emergency services provided by the American Red Cross. Q: I already support my favorite charity. Why give to United Way too? A: The needs of the community are much broader than any one agency can handle. United Way partner agencies offer a comprehensive mix of programs and services to meet the diverse needs of our total community. Also, many contributors like the option of making one donation and having it spread among many diverse programs in the community. Q: Why do some agencies charge a fee for their services? A: United Way funds various programs offered by our partner agencies. Since we do not fund the entire operating budget of an agency, most seek other sources of revenue to cover their costs. United Way partner agencies operate without discrimination with most using fee scales based on ability to pay. By allowing some individuals to pay for the services, United Way partner agencies are able to stretch their United Way dollars to serve more people. Q: Why doesn’t United Way include all organizations? A: Although we work closely with 23 partner agencies, many organizations receive funding through our donor choice program. Not all nonprofits want to be part of a single, community-wide campaign. United Way only sends funds to agencies that provide health and human services and are 501(c)3 tax exempt as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. This does not include agencies that are primarily academic, animal welfare, cultural, grant making, political, recreational, or religious in nature. Q: Can I designate to my favorite organization? A: United Way honors designations to a number of local organizations but does not encourage them. We believe that our citizen review panels do an effective job in allocating funds to our partner agencies from annual campaign funds. However, if you choose to designate, United Way will honor your wishes. An administrative fee is charged to process designated funds to agencies that are not partners with United Way. A $150 minimum designation per agency is necessary for an individual to designate. Anything under $150 will be directed to the Allocations Process. Q: Is my contribution tax deductible? A: Yes, however there are some guidelines. Please consult your tax advisor for information on your specific situation. 36


UNITED WAY OF THE CSRA COMMUNITY IMPACT PROGRAM FUNDING ALLOCATIONS Using contributions to the Community Investment Fund, United Way of the CSRA distributes funding to 42 health and human service programs at 23 partner agencies. Program allocation requests are made bi-annually and include budget information as well as proposed impact of funds. Quarterly success stories, outcomes logic models, and annual total service reports are required under United Way’s partnership agreement. Partner agencies also submit annual IRS Form 990s and audits as per UW policies. These funded programs are reviewed annually by groups of community volunteers to ensure appropriate usage of funds. Volunteers complete site visits and in-depth reviews of program accomplishments. Funding is targeted towards programs demonstrating an impact on the community. United Way’s funding policies are designed to ensure the greatest accountability for donors’ funds and the greatest impact on individuals in our local community.

AMERICORPS*VISTA (VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA) United Way’s AmeriCorps VISTA program, Project UNITE, is part of the national service program designed specifically for the purpose of fighting poverty. United Way serves as a regional intermediary agency and is assigned up to 22 AmeriCorps VISTA members and AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates who serve full-time for up to one year with area nonprofits in need of capacity building. AmeriCorps VISTAs help build nonprofit human capacity, financial capacity, and social capacity in nonprofits where they are assigned. Expenses provide support funds necessary for regional program supervision and oversight. In 2011, this program served 21 nonprofit agencies, engaged more than 4,225 volunteers in more than 36,800 hours of community service, raised over $482,250 dollars of cash (grants, donations and fundraising) and non-cash resources (in-kind goods and services) to support community nonprofits, and identified numerous partnerships. The organization’s vision is to keep abreast of community needs and identify resources and funding streams that assist in strengthening and building nonprofit capacity to deliver quality programs and services to persons and families experiencing poverty in our service area. 37


2-1-1

INFORMATION

AND

REFERRAL

PROGRAM

The concept of 2-1-1 – an easy to remember 3-digit dialing code that connects people with professionally-delivered information and referral to health, community and human services – was born in Atlanta in 1997 through the leadership of the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta. Locally, 2-1-1 has significant impact on the quality of life throughout the community. In 2011, United Way of the CSRA’s 2-1-1 information and referral specialists assisted 24,741 callers. In addition to assisting those callers, 2-1-1 provided support to specific agencies that offered direct service in the areas of free tax preparation, and homeless prevention programs (rent and utilities). An important contribution by the 2-1-1 program is Community Voicemail (CVM). CVM helps low-income and homeless citizens in Richmond and Columbia counties without phones by providing them with a free phone number and voice mail service. This allows them to re-connect to the community for employment, housing, education and their support system. Another important contribution is ―2-1-1 On the Go‖. This program takes information and referral directly to those most in needthe homeless. 2-1-1 works closely with local homeless shelters to provide backpacks containing information, hygiene products and free local bus transportation passes to assist with seeking employment, accessing mental health treatment and pursuing other needed services. Providing a database of wide-ranging volunteer opportunities assists non-profit agencies in every sector of the community in maintaining a supply of dedicated, enthusiastic workers and donors to fulfill the mission of their organization. It is there when people need it, a vital, proven part of the human service infrastructure.

BORN LEARNING United Way’s Born Learning is a public engagement campaign that helps parents, grandparents and caregivers explore ways to turn everyday moments into fun learning opportunities for children from birth through age 5. It is built on three cornerstones: awareness, education and action, and includes nationwide advertising, a wide array of research-based parent education materials along with community impact tools to help galvanize communities around early learning. Born Learning focuses on ―everyday moments‖- things that parents and caregivers can do every day to encourage early learning. The upbeat radio and TV ads are designed to capture the attention of busy parents and direct them to the Born Learning website or United Way’s 2-1-1 line where they will receive user-friendly tools, tips and answers and referrals to many of the excellent parenting programs already available in our community. Additionally, parent education materials are available in pediatrician’s offices, hospitals, child care centers, and other agencies that serve small children.

CHRISTMAS CLEARINGHOUSE As co-administrator of the CSRA Christmas Clearinghouse, United Way collaborates with over 40 local non-profits, churches, schools, government entities and civic groups to provide holiday assistance. The mission of the Christmas Clearinghouse is to fairly distribute holiday assistance so that no family is helped by more than one agency until all needy families have been helped. Through the use of an online system, local nonprofits, faith-based, government and civic organizations check the names of their applicants to ensure they are not being served by other organizations. By reducing duplications, more individuals in need can be assisted with toys and food. The clearinghouse simultaneously reduces duplication and increases the resources available to serve individuals and families that are in the greatest need in our community. The project includes coordinating efforts to reach eight outlying counties. In 2011, over 16,000 individuals in the CSRA received assistance through clearinghouse partners.

FAMILYWIZE PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD United Way of the CSRA has partnered with FamilyWize to distribute free prescription discount cards to help people living and working in the CSRA save money. These free cards can be used by everyone in the community, not just people without insurance. They can even be used by people with health benefits, including Medicaid or Medicare. The FamilyWize card lowers the cost of medicine by an average of 30% or more for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. It’s easy. It’s just like a coupon you can keep using every time you need to fill a prescription. The FamilyWize card provides immediate savings on prescription medicines with no paperwork or forms to fill out. All you have to do is present a FamilyWize card at a local pharmacy to get the savings. Nearly 1,000 United Ways in all 50 states have helped to save more than $100 million on prescriptions in their communities. Individuals with internet access can go to www.uwcsra.org or to www.FamilyWize.org to print a card, look up drug prices and obtain a list of participating pharmacies.

39


PROJECT SERVE DAY-OF-CARING Every spring, through United Way’s efforts, volunteers from local companies go out to local non-profit organizations to complete projects ranging from painting and landscaping to playground installation. Without the help of these generous volunteers, most of these agencies could not afford to have this much-needed work done. Volunteers walk away with an increased awareness of community needs and an enhanced commitment to United Way’s work in the community. In 2012 nearly 300 volunteers completed projects at 18 local nonprofit agency sites, saving these agencies countless dollars and allowing them to have an enhanced focus on program delivery.

OTHER GRANTS AND INITIATIVES Through other special grants, initiatives and collaborations, United Way positions itself as a community leader in addressing needs. These projects include additional federal, state, and local grants, special assistance, community engagement and a host of other projects. United Way seeks out collaborations with the corporate, nonprofit, faith-based, government, civic and educational communities and continually engages new partners and strategies.
