Creating leaders who care
United Way Simcoe Muskoka’s Sponsored Employee Program is a unique volunteer engagement opportunity for potential leaders in your organization. This 16-week full-time program engages a broad cross section of candidates to provide support, guidance and inspiration to scores of United Way Simcoe Muskoka workplace campaigns across the region.
Build a better business
By supporting the Sponsored Employee Program, your organization will enjoy the following benefits:
• Professional coaching and training for your employee
• Public recognition as a committed donor and community supporter
• Positive exposure to your organization in the community
While working under the supervision of a professional United Way fundraiser, all participants will have the chance to develop or enhance valuable skills that may include:
• Sales and customer service skills
• Teamwork and interpersonal skills
• Public-speaking skills
• Leadership skills
• Time and project-management skills
• Organization, facilitation and analytical skills
Get involved in two different ways
Sponsor an employee to the program for 16 weeks from September to December. The employee will assist with the annual workplace campaign on a full-time basis. Their salary and benefits continue to be paid by the employer. The Sponsored Employee Program can help your employee develop professional skills while teaming up with United Way Simcoe Muskoka to build a better region for everyone.
Provide financial support in lieu of a Sponsored Employee. Your organization’s financial support of $10,000 gives United Way Simcoe Muskoka the flexibility to hire an individual with specific skills to support our fundraising efforts. This is an ideal option for organizations looking to support the program, but that are not in a position to second an employee for the requisite 16-week period.
