Platinum & Gold Pacesetters

Workplace Campaigns are the cornerstone of the Heartland United Way Campaign. The relationship with businesses in our community are so important and deeply appreciated. The key to successful campaigns are a result of business leadership who offers a company match or a corporate gift, engages employees in planning the campaign, educates employees about the UW, and then adds some incentives and competitions for fun.

We are grateful for all the businesses who support the Heartland United Way!
