Social Responsibility

They say it takes a village. They may be known for fundraising activities focused on individuals and families, but United Way organizations also benefit greatly from our partnerships, and vice versa. In fact, with the growing interest in corporate social responsibility and employee engagement, it's becoming more of a valuable partnership than ever.

Our partners contribute
more than money.
Period.

Here’s our list of corporate partners whose contributions and support fortify our efforts and enable us to bring change to more and more people across our community:

Bernick’s
A family-owned distribution company whose Bernick Family Foundation supports endless programs and initiatives in the communities it serves. Its support of United Way of Central Minnesota dates back decades.
Coborn’s
In 1967, former Coborn’s President and CEO, Dan Coborn, along with his wife, Mabel, were charter members who helped get United Way of Central Minnesota off the ground. Now, 50 years later, the family-owned business continues to support our organization annually.
Costco
For 32 years and counting, Costco has hosted United Way month across its organization supporting its longstanding philosophy to support the communities where they work and live.

Corporate Event Sponsor

Sponsoring UWCM events feels good, but it also makes good business sense. Studies show that consumers are more likely to support organizations that are involved in the local community. Community support also helps build a positive brand image in the eyes of the consumer. Your company will be highlighted as a community leader in front of thousands of potential customers - both individuals and organizations.

Sponsorship Benefits

Your partnership with UWCM is a sound investment that empowers you to meet your company's philanthropic goals as well as create real change in our community. Sponsorships can enhance your company's image and visibility in the community, set you apart from competitors, help develop closer relationships with current and prospective customers, showcase products and services, and help stretch your advertising budgets.

In addition, we design each event sponsorship with the details you want. We go above recognition and marketing and give your team a great experience that they couldn’t find anywhere else. Giving should be fun and we make sure to do that!
