More than Money. More than a Movement.
How We Do It
Time, talent and treasure. Change doesn't happen alone, which is why we have developed unique ways to contribute to the Central Minnesota community we love. People can give, advocate or volunteer — as individuals or organizations. Whatever works best for you is great, because it all works toward the betterment of the place we proudly call home in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Everyone has a distinct reason why he or she feels compelled or drawn to support philanthropy and causes. We think we embrace that philosophy for the greater good of our organization.
We’re in Good Company in Central Minnesota
We're immensely proud of the Central Minnesota businesses who have participated in workplace giving efforts and recognize the irreplaceable backbone those employee contributions create on behalf of our impact. They support our local mission to improve education, financial stability and health in countless ways. Join them at YOUR business, big or small, traditional or next generation-style, and unite your staff around a noble effort that will boost morale, idea sharing and good vibes within your organization. Now that’s a culture perk.
Doing Good Together
For corporations, governments, nonprofits and other organizations who partner with United Way of Central Minnesota, the support is neither an expense nor a gift. It is an investment, and an invitation to share ideas and volunteer to build a stronger community using the platform we’ve been given. That ultimately benefits every corporate partner in our region.
Caring Power, Mobilized
As a recognized United Way of Central Minnesota donor, you inherit special opportunities to volunteer and attend events to connect with like-minded professionals. Many of our recognized givers have volunteered on committees and other initiatives, and by so doing have received a boost in business or career opportunities, not to mention the irreplaceable spirit of giving that just makes a person feel good.
The Gift of a Lifetime
The old saying "You can't take it with you" is true indeed. So, as individuals plan their legacies to take care of loved ones for generations to come, it's also important to consider the well-being of the community people spent decades loving, serving, and supporting. That's where our Planned Giving opportunities really shine. Our gracious donors' light shines every day on those we help and there’s no greater honor than helping tell that story on their behalf.
