What is a Pacesetter?

Pacesetters are organizations that conduct their United Way workplace campaigns before the annual Day of Caring and campaign kickoff. They begin their campaigns in late summer and serve as model companies and organizations for the overall Community, setting the pace for the entire campaign.


Benefits of being a Pacesetter:
  • Exclusive invitation to Pacesetter Kick-off Breakfast
What do we have to do to be a Pacesetter?

We have a very simple two-step process for our Pacesetters:

  • Start your workplace campaign in July or August.   
  • Have everything wrapped up and turned into the Resource Development team before the Day of Caring in September.  

It’s that easy!
