Since our beginning, we have relied on the generous support of corporations and small businesses to help meet community need. We could not do what we do without our Corporate Partners.

AFL-CIO Partnership

The AFL-CIO and the United Way have had a partnership in community service for decades. The basic premise of the partnership has always been to improve community life by working cooperatively to ensure everyone has access to the quality health and human services they need and deserve.

Throughout the country nearly 200 union members serve as liaisons between their central labor councils and their local United Way.

Liaisons coordinate volunteer projects, provide strike and lockout support, help the unemployed and work to build allies in the nonunion community.

You can visit the Northwest Indiana AFL-CIO Webpage for more information. 

Workplace Campaigns

Workplace campaigns are a simple and effective way to get the whole team involved in making a difference! Organizations can help employees give back and make a impact on the community through easy payroll deductions. Campaigns are led by an Employee Campaign Manager, with the support of United Way of Porter County.
