The Yale-United Way campaign is so successful year after year thanks in large part to the faculty and staff who volunteer to be champions in their departments. Department champions are responsible for educating their co-workers about the work and mission of United Way of Greater New Haven and encouraging them to make a donation to support the annual campaign. Champions use a variety of strategies, such as face-to-face conversations, email reminders, and fun events to raise awareness about the campaign and generate excitement in their department.
Champions should have a passion for improving the lives of children and families in Greater New Haven and inviting their peers to learn more about this work. Champions are needed at all levels and in all departments; the more champions there are, the more individuals will be reached.
If you are interested in serving as a champion for your department or if you would like more information, please contact Steven Gogliettino at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203.691.4212.
