Invest in Finney County

Thank you for your commitment to Finnney County United Way and for helping to create lasting change in our community. An investment to United Way is an investment in our future.  Our work, in conjunction with Partner Agencies, improves lives and strengthens Finney County. The benefits also extend indirectly to our corporate partners, who reap well-earned rewards for nurturing community growth and change. Run a workplace campaign, volunteer, and communicate how you are helping to advance the common good.

Workplace Campaign

Having a workplace campaign is a great way to get your employees involved in philanthropy. Finney Coutny United Way holds its annual campaign starting mid-August.  

The workplace payroll deduction is the most convenient and efficient way to give to United Way.  It's the workplace payroll deduction system that allows United Way to keep its overhead exceptionally low for the dollars that we raise.  It's the system that allows 12 people, 50 people, 200 people, or more to give a little from each pay period.  The employer collects these contributions and then sends a check to Finney County United Way for processing.  Some employers send their checks bimonthly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. This system allows us to keep staff to a minimum and administrative overhead very low. To enroll in easy payroll deduction contributions, see your employer for the enrollment form. 


Help your employees stay motivated to LIVE UNITED year round!  Not sure how to get your employee giving campaign started or how to keep it going strong? Contact Deb Oyler to see how we can help you.
