Campaign Managers

Thank you for being a leader and advocate for our campaign! Our contributions make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors in need, and as leaders, you set and maintain the tone of our campaign. Whether you have been a campaign manager for several years or this is your first time, the resources below will give you helpful tools and tips to engage your fellow colleagues around our goals.

Participation Rate Contest

As an additional incentive to contribute – and to have a little fun – your campaign areas will once again compete to win cash prizes for those with the highest participation rates. Campaign areas have been split into three competitive categories based on the number of employees: small, medium, and large. The campaign area with the highest participation rate in each category will win a $1,000 prize. In past years these prizes have been used for staff celebrations, departmental purchases, or additional donations to community organizations of your area’s choice. Standings will be updated to campaign managers and listed on this page at the end of the contest. Good luck!
