Welcome United Way of Metro Chicago Campaign Leaders!

The Campaign Leaders Guide is a key resource for new and repeat workplace campaign leaders, providing insights and best practices, along with outlining the steps to take in order to execute a successful workplace campaign.
The Donor Guide is an all-encompassing brochure that provides a high-level overview of United Way of Metro Chicago’s impact in the community and how your financial contribution supports our work. Use the compact, tri-fold piece to provide team members with key information about how they can help build a stronger Chicago region.
The Frequently asked Questions (FAQs) one-pager is your guide to answering questions about United Way. The FAQs answer questions from “What does United Way do?” to “How do I get involved or help someone in need?”
This one-pager answers the question, “does my donation really make a difference?” by providing tangible examples of the types of programs and support United Way provides to individuals, households and entire neighborhoods.
The United Way Brochure provides a detailed overview of United Way’s work across our region. Different from the donor guide, this brochure provides more specific information about “why United Way,” along with some of the results that we have achieved.
The United Way Campaign Video provides a visual interpretation of our impact work across the region and why it matters. The video is approximately three minutes and is conveniently shareable via email and usable anywhere there is a screen, without taking up a lot of time or diminishing the content!
Use the “United, We Fight” and “United, We Win” campaign posters to visually show the challenge we are fighting to solve and the positive outcomes achieved through our collective approach. Place two posters in a highly trafficked area to help provide a visual story of United Way’s impact in the community. (Note: the posters are not self-adhesive)
