How can local and state United Ways help?
Ways your local United Way can provide support:
- Consider an ongoing investment in UWRA through a gift to our annual campaign*
- Help get the word out about UWRA to your staff and retirees. Post UWRA’s website link www.UWRA.org on internal United Way websites and mention UWRA at exit interviews. We have recently rebuilt this website around the Give, Advocate, and Volunteer theme in a concerted effort to more effectively communicate our work - please pass it along. Keep your retirees/alumni involved and engaged with each other and in the United Way mission.
- Join the Gold Standard United Ways by sponsoring alumni/retirees’ dues ($20) in UWRA, or at a minimum their first year. This way more people can get to know about us, become exposed to what we do and choose to join our efforts. Keeping that connection to colleagues and United Way is the number one reason United Way alums join UWRA – help foster this connection by sponsorship.
As Rob Reifsnyder noted in his letter when reaching out to United Way of Greater Cincinnati retirees, “We hope that you will find the many benefits of this membership valuable…. You devoted many years of your career to UWGC and the United Way system. With access to the UWRA, we hope to provide you with the resources that will help you stay connected to United Way and continue to enjoy retirement.”
