4 Where do the dollars come from? United Way is able to help improve lives and build potential because of the generosity of our community. Individuals, companies, unions, governments and foundations choose to invest in their community through United Way as it understands the significant needs and challenges within the community and is committed to work with service providers, residents, and donors, to respond in ways that will have an impact in London and Middlesex County. Campaign United Way s largest source of revenue - representing approximately 90% of overall revenue - is our annual Campaign, including: Individual and corporate donations (includes payroll deductions, direct mail and major gifts) Special events Sponsorships The annual United Way Campaign is a team effort, led by the volunteer Campaign Cabinet. Hundreds of volunteers, led by Employee Campaign Coordinators, run their own campaigns at over 800 workplaces in London and Middlesex County. These employees receive training and support from United Way staff and Sponsored Employees. Sponsored Employees are individuals who are loaned by their employers to work exclusively on the Campaign Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 4

7 Community Investments This year United Way London & Middlesex made its largest investment ever to provide ongoing support for a network of 81 services and programs delivered through 50 agencies that help hundreds of people in our community. This helped provide training and skills development to build strong social service agencies and foster community partnerships that draw together people and organizations from across our community to tackle complex issues such as poverty and mental health stigma. The power of these donations enables United Way London & Middlesex to speak out with a strong voice for social change. Strategic initiatives & special projects Working to respond to ever-changing needs in our community United Way provides strategic funding to projects that address new and emerging issues. Some examples of this work include: 211, the New Beginnings Loan Fund, Women & Philanthropy scholarships, Microloan and Matched Saving Program and the Middlesex County Needs Assessment Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 7

Plan your campaign Identify strengths and opportunities for growth from your previous campaign. Set participation and financial goals for your campaign. Work with your Campaign Team to develop a detailed timeline and calendar of events using this guide. Order campaign supplies from your United Way Staff Partner. Visit to obtain logos, graphics, stories, and other useful materials. Recruit your Campaign Team Your team should include members from all departments, levels and locations of your organization. Remember to include team members to represent second and third shift employees as well as union members. A Leadership Chair to be responsible for initiating the Leadership Giving Campaign in your workplace ($1,000+/annually). Campaign Ambassadors for peer-to-peer solicitations, which is the most effective method of fundraising. Strive to recruit one representative for every employees. A GenNext Ambassador who can create buzz and promote the campaign with employees in their 20 s & 30 s. A United Way Staff Partner who can offer ideas, provide support, order supplies, request community speakers, and make presentations. Target Completion Date Train your Team! Educate your team members on United Way s role in the community Register your team for an Employee Campaign Coordinator orientation session. Energize your Campaign Team by sharing United Way s work in the community. Hold a Campaign Ambassadors training session at your workplace; your United Way Staff Partner can facilitate this. Launch your campaign Announce your goal(s) for the campaign, activities and incentives Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 9

10 Initiate Leadership Giving campaign ($1,000+/annually) Meet with your Leadership Chair to coordinate your Leadership Giving Campaign plan. Review your organization s list of past Leadership Donors. Contact United Way for this list and confirm the donors are still employed at your organization. Encourage donors of $500-$999 to join the Leadership Giving Program. Be sure to explain the benefits of this program. Explain and promote the Challenge Grant and its benefits. (see page 18 of this manual for more information) Make the Ask Strive to ask 100 percent of your organization s employees and retirees to donate to United Way. Do a one-on-one, peer-to-peer ask with personal follow-up. Ask selected employees (based on salary grade or title) to give at the Leadership level with gifts of $1,000+. Report Results Schedule a mid-campaign update meeting with your committee and your United Way Staff Partner. At the mid-point of your campaign, dollars should be close to 70 % of your campaign goal. This meeting is an opportunity for problem solving, motivating your team, and thanking them. Submit donations and reports at mid-campaign and again within two weeks of the end of your campaign. Early submission ensures your colleagues gifts are processed and Leadership Donors are thanked in a timely manner. Deliver all forms for payroll deduction gifts to your payroll departments. Keep your employees informed on campaign progress. Follow up. Ensure all previous Leadership and pre-leadership Donors have been given the opportunity to give by doing personal check-in reminders. During your campaign, regularly submit your Employee Campaign Report and share final results with employees. Say Thank You! Thank all donors and volunteers who have made your campaign a success. Hold a thank you event for employees. Invite United Way to report back to staff on the impact of their gifts. A presentation or community partner tour in the months following your campaign reinforces the value of donors gifts Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 10

11 What Works! The strongest campaigns have a number of things in common. Incorporating these elements into your campaign can dramatically increase your success. Obtain management support It is essential to have visible support from your senior management team. Getting involved in a United Way campaign is a great way for management to interact with employees and demonstrate their commitment to our community. Here are some suggestions: Identify a mentor from the senior management team. This person serves as your link with senior management and may sit on your Campaign Committee. He/she is helpful conveying your campaign plans to the senior management team, canvassing, trouble-shooting and securing management support for campaign events. Include United Way on the agenda of all senior management meetings. Request time to share the campaign plan, for staff volunteers, and other resources. Share all relevant campaign information with senior management, including your campaign plan, results of your Mid-Campaign Meeting, and conclusions from your final evaluations. Ask senior management to play an active role in the campaign by supporting volunteers in their individual areas and asking them for regular campaign updates, offering assistance and providing appropriate recognition. A visible senior management representative can: Announce your role as Employee Campaign Coordinator to the workplace. Attend the first committee meeting to give a personal endorsement. Send a letter to all employees asking for their support and inviting them to campaign activities. Attend a group presentation and give a personal endorsement. Arrange for and attend a wind-up event for the committee. Recruit a union representative United Way has a strong partnership with Labour. If your workplace is unionized, please ensure unions are represented on your committee and as Campaign Ambassadors Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 11

12 Include a Leadership Giving campaign This United Way program is for individual donors who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more. Leadership Giving is the number one campaign growth strategy. A Leadership Giving Campaign allows employees to have a greater impact in London and Middlesex County and sets your organization as a leader. A Leadership Giving Campaign promotes and recognizes annual personal contributions at the level of $1,000+/annually: Recognition Name Giving 000 or more Set a participation goal By focusing on participation, you substantially increase your campaign dollars. By setting a participation goal, employees can rally together to encourage more people to give. Remember, every gift counts. Ensure every employee is personally asked to give. People do not give if they are not asked. Inform and inspire employees When employees hear about the impact United Way makes in their community, and see the evidence first-hand, they are more eager to play a part. Give employees the opportunity to learn about United Way by offering a variety of educational events. Speak to your United Way Staff Partner for assistance and scheduling. Encourage employees to visit to read a variety of community success stories. Offer employees a glimpse into the impact of their donations by bringing a community speaker to share the United Way message at your workplace. Distribute personalized pledge forms Use personalized pledge forms to ensure everyone has the opportunity to give. Get help from your Human Resources or payroll departments. Your organization may be using an on-line pledge form. If so, discuss the follow-up procedures with your United Way Staff Partner. Ask for all pledge forms to be returned Request all employees return their pledge forms whether or not they are donating. This simplifies tracking; helps maintain confidentiality (if returned in an envelope) and may result in some additional donations. It ensures all employees make a decision and lets Campaign Ambassadors know they no longer need to follow up Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 12

13 Year-round communications Take advantage of non-campaign months to educate employees about United Way. Many organizations use intranet, , and community speakers to educate employees and to grow future campaign participation rates. Stay in touch with your United Way Staff Partner and visit periodically to keep informed. Institute a New Hires program When new employees start with your company, make sure to give them a pledge form and discuss your organization s commitment to supporting the community through United Way. Most new employees are happy to start their giving right away and will continue to give when you run your campaign. Establish a Retiree Campaign Retirees represent a pool of potential donors who may not be captured in your current campaign. With more people retiring every day, a Retiree Campaign is also an excellent way to ensure existing donors stay connected. Your organization may already be communicating with this group. Your Retiree Campaign may be as simple as including a pledge form with an existing mailing, sending a separate mailing to this group, or arranging for a presentation at a retiree gathering. Better still, involve an active retiree in the effort - the message is more meaningful when it comes from a peer. Special events An ideal campaign includes one or two events to create enthusiasm and build momentum. These may include a launch and a wrap-up event. They should not take away from the employee pledges and are best scheduled after the pledge forms have been distributed. To help with your special events, United Way has supplies available through your Sponsored Employee. Special Events should be: Limited in number Special events can be time consuming, labour intensive and they often result in low returns on participation. Having fewer, more engaging events is always a better choice. Employees do not wish to be asked to donate repeatedly throughout the campaign. Events that cost money, e.g. silent auctions should always be held at the end of your campaign. Awareness builders The best special events help raise awareness about United Way and your employee campaign Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 13

14 Campaign Tools To convey a consistent, accurate message we encourage you to use United Way s campaign marketing tools. Your United Way Sponsored Employee can assist you to select items to best serve your needs, or check out the campaign tool kit at Pledge form Make sure each employee receives a United Way pledge form. Many organizations offer their employees an opportunity to donate through an online pledge form. United Way London & Middlesex is providing an online giving tool which will be available to many organizations in Posters Posters create awareness and reinforce United Way s message. Hang them throughout your building and incorporate them at special events and meetings. You can also download them at Videos Show United Way s campaign video at employee meetings to inform and inspire everyone to support the campaign. The United Way video is available at Stories Donors need to know the impact of their generosity. Our impact stories provide real-life accounts of people in London & Middlesex who have benefitted from a United Way funded initiative. Download our impact stories from and distribute them via newsletter, , internet, as desk drops or in pay cheques Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 14

15 GenNext Ambassador A GenNext Ambassador is the voice of young philanthropists in your workplace. You will collaborate with your workplace s campaign committee and be responsible for ensuring that your organization delivers a United Way message relevant to employees in their 20s and 30s. You will also encourage your peers to learn more about their community by participating in GenNext s year-round calendar of events and volunteer activities. As a GenNext Ambassador, you have three things to do: 1. Share GenNext activities and events: Use your workplace s internal communication channels to share GenNext events, Pop-up Volunteering opportunities and other activities with your peers in their 20s and 30s. 2. Captain the StairClimb team Be part of United Way s biggest annual fundraising event. Team up with your co-workers, conquer the stairs at One London Place and raise funds to create lasting change in London and Middlesex County. 3. Be part of the United Way workplace campaign Be a member of the committee, contribute ideas and get your co-workers talking about giving to United Way. There s support! You will receive training and information about what you need to do and ideas about events and communication strategies. Best of all, you will be connected to a network of GenNext Ambassadors from other workplaces, will be supported by United Way staff, and will be invited to GenNext Ambassador networking events. What s in it for you? A chance to do something in London and Middlesex County to address poverty, mental health and beginnings & transitions, the United Way impact areas Demonstrate leadership, communication and organization skills Network with other, like-minded young people within your organization and within the United Way GenNext Ambassador network Inspire your peers to make a difference in London and Middlesex County Get training and experience planning and leading events Interact with people in your workplace outside your department/area Benefits to the Company: Engage employees in their 20s and 30s in your corporate social responsibility program Provide young employees with corporate volunteer opportunities Give employees in their 20s and 30s an opportunity to use their leadership, organization and communication skills to contribute to the community and your company Increase the United Way giving rate of the GenNext demographic at your workplace 2014 Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 15 Use the knowledge of young employees on how to best reach GenNexters with a motivating United Way message

16 Canvassing Ambassadors Ambassadors are a vital extension of the Employee Campaign Coordinator. They are part of the campaign from start to finish, helping with meetings, boosting participation by encouraging employees to give and, perhaps most importantly, communicating United Way s messages while having fun! The most responsive donors are informed and involved. An effective communications program, supported by committed Campaign Ambassadors and a well-planned Workplace Campaign always encourages an enthusiastic response from donors. Who is an Ambassador? The ideal Campaign Ambassador is someone who is: Community-minded and excited about United Way`s impact in London & Middlesex. A committed United Way donor. Enthusiastic and respected. Organized and flexible. A self-starter and team player. Well respected by their peers. Giving Levels Leadership Donation $1,000 ($38.50 bi-weekly for 26 pay periods) Friend Level Giving $500-$999 ($19.23 bi-weekly) Everyday Hero Giving $365 ($1/day, $14.03 bi-weekly) 2014 Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 16

17 What is Leadership Giving? At United Way, Leaders are people who are driving change, willing to set a powerful example, and able to inspire action. It begins with a personal annual gift of $1,000 or more. Leadership Giving is an important part of United Way employee campaigns in all organizations. United Way relies on the volunteer Leadership Chairs to spearhead the Leadership Giving Program for their organization, and provides training, ongoing support and fundraising materials to help ensure the success of the Leadership Giving Program. Leadership Giving is the fastest growing area of United Way s annual Campaign, currently representing 36% of the overall annual Campaign achievement. Donor benefits Leadership Giving provides donors with the personal satisfaction of making a significant contribution to the quality of life for everyone in the community Leadership Donors are seen as positive role models for their organizational peers and other employees Leadership Donors are listed in the Leadership Honour Roll, which is widely distributed to individuals in the London & Middlesex area Employer Benefits Improve the positive image of the organization - participating companies are seen as community leaders because of the high level of commitment and increased giving. Improved employee morale - Leadership Giving activities build teamwork and strengthen employee commitment by linking Leadership Donors in a common cause of caring for their community 2014 Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 17

18 Increased support to the community through United Way - a well-run Leadership campaign guarantees that your company will increase its overall United Way achievement, resulting in a sense of pride and accomplishment for the employees Community benefits Access to new resources - new dollars from Leadership Campaigns enhance United Way s ability to respond to community needs with funding increases Recognition of new community Leaders - as Leadership Donors and volunteers gain recognition for their charitable activities, they are recognized as potential community leaders Increased community spirit - Leadership Donors have increased pride in their community and desire to participate in community activities Challenge Grant Thanks to the generosity of a small group of local donors, United Way London & Middlesex is proud to announce the 2014 Leadership Challenge Grant. What is it? The Leadership Challenge Grant provides matching funds for all new Leadership Level Gifts or increases to Leadership Level Gifts to the 2014 Campaign (a Leadership Gift is any donation $1,000 or more). How it works: Any new Leadership Level Gift (i.e. have not given at this level in the past) pledged for the 2014 Campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar, thus doubling the impact of your gift in support of the community.* If you supported United Way at the Leadership Gift Level ($1,000 or more) last year, and increase your gift this year, the increase in your gift will be matched.* To learn more about the 2014 Leadership Challenge Grant, please visit our website at or call us at *Note: Matches will be made for qualifying gifts from the beginning of the campaign year until the fund has been exhausted. Pledge early to double your impact in the community Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 18

19 Leadership Giving levels The Leadership Campaign, promoted by many United Ways, encourages and recognizes those individuals who invest in their community with a gift of $1,000 or more using the levels outlined below: Philanthropists Circle $25,000 or more Community Circle $10,000- $24,999 Leaders of Excellence $5,000- $9,999 Leaders of Distinction $2,000- $4,999 Leaders of the Way $1,000- $1, Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 19

20 Finance and Administration Tax Receipting Always check to ensure a donation is receiptable under Canada Revenue Agency tax receipting regulations before promising a tax receipt to a donor. This applies to any donation lottery tickets, goods for an auction, casual day donations, etc. One of the most unpleasant tasks a volunteer can face is telling a donor they will not be receiving a tax receipt after all. Please remember, these are Canada Revenue Agency tax regulations. United Way must follow them to retain our charitable status. There can be no exceptions. GIFTS THAT ARE RECEIPTABLE Direct cash, cheque and credit card donations of $20 and over are automatically issued a tax receipt. Donations of less than $20 will be issued a tax receipt on request. Direct cash, cheque and credit card donations are receiptable for the tax year in which they are received. Monthly donations will be receipted at the end of the calendar year. Payroll enquires/receipt requests should be directed to United Way s Finance Department at Payroll deductions Employees who donate through Payroll Deduction Plans are entitled to a tax receipt at the end of the year, reporting total charitable donations for that year. This can be provided in one of the following ways: Either your company has an agreement with United Way to show the annual contribution on the employee s T4 slip. Or if your payroll system cannot report charitable donations on T4s, United Way will issue tax receipts after we have received your final payroll remittance for the year. Your Payroll Administrator will need to provide us with the name of each payroll donor and amount donated through payroll deductions for the year, as well as the total amount remitted by you to United Way for the year Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 20

21 Event Pledging The pledging of company-run sponsorship events such as bowl-a-thons, dance-a-thons, etc. are receipted under the same guidelines as direct cash and cheque donations. This category does not include corporate event sponsorship. A listing on pledge sheets must include full name, home mailing address and postal code, and be legible. The forms can be found in our campaign toolkit at Donations of goods and merchandise by individuals and businesses Donations of physical goods (not services) for use during an employee campaign may be receiptable. The receipt issued is referred to as a Gift in Kind tax receipt and is different from the tax receipt issued for cash donations. Receipt Requirements: Amount must be over $100. Receipt value cannot exceed the proceeds received for the specific donated item, regardless of the fair market value or appraisal value. For example: value of item - $175; proceeds from the item - $150. Receipt would be issued for $150. Items created to initiate donations (e.g., cookbooks) must have any costs incurred deducted from the funds raised before submitting to United Way. Canada Revenue Agency requires that businesses donating items out of inventory or goods they are in the business of selling must supply an invoice to support the value of the donation (at cost). Neither the organization putting on the special event nor United Way will be required to pay the invoice, but the company donating the items is required to include this amount in their sales revenue. Requests for Gift in Kind receipts should be submitted with the special event money and supported by the following information: Detailed description of the donated item. Fair market value and documentation supporting the amount, i.e., appraisal, catalogue, independent third party, etc. Proceeds received for the item donated. Date item was donated. Name and address of the donor. Letter from the Employee Campaign Coordinator stating that the item was used for the benefit of the campaign and the manner in which it was used Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 21

22 GIFTS THAT ARE NOT RECEIPTABLE Auctions and raffles A charity cannot issue tax receipts to people who buy items at a charity auction, even if the price they pay exceeds the fair market value of the item. This is because they are receiving something in return and therefore there is no gift. Contributions of services Contributions of services may not be acknowledged by issue of an official receipt. A gift must involve property. Contributions of services (that is time, skills, effort) are not property and do not qualify. How to use incentive prizes You can offer an incentive to make a donation only if you ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to win the prize. For example, as everyone hands in their pledge form (completed or not), they become eligible for a draw. GIFTS THAT ARE PARTIALLY RECEIPTABLE Admission cost to a meal or entertainment event Canada Revenue Agency regulations permit the issuing of a receipt for the donation component of the admission price to a meal or entertainment event. For example, if a lunch costs $30 per person (including HST) and the admission price is $100, then a receipt can be provided for the $70 difference. This partial receipting rule applies to dinners, shows or the like. **Please do not promise anyone a receipt. Please check with your United Way Staff Partner if you are not sure about receipting rules Employee Campaign Coordinator Guide Page 22

23 Licenses and Permits In order to hold some special events, such as raffles, casino nights and bingo, you are required to obtain a permit or license. To obtain a license, an application form must be filled out in the name of United Way London & Middlesex. If you are planning to hold a special event that requires a license, please get in touch with your United Way Staff Partner or call It may take up to six weeks for you to receive your license, so plan early. When holding a raffle, you must include the Ontario lottery license number on each raffle ticket. Keep in mind that you cannot print or sell your raffle tickets until you receive a lottery license. If you are planning a raffle, please build approximately six weeks time into your plan to apply for the license, print your tickets with your license number and sell the tickets.
