Expanding Your Campaigns
Conducting a side-by-side campaign that includes Community Shares requires minimal additional work. Studies show that employers who offer multiple options in workplace giving see an increase in employee participation and an increase in total dollars raised for the community. Employees appreciate the broader choice.
No one federation can represent the entire community. But each federation brings the knowledge and resources of the organizations it represents. Adding Community Shares brings a variety of community-based organizations that address issues of social and economic justice and work to create and sustain a healthy environment.
Our member organizations use a variety of strategies that range from advocacy to address the root causes of social problems to direct services. Our member organizations understand that sometimes substantial change simply can’t happen by working within society’s existing framework. They realize that to achieve justice, they need to alter the framework itself. While other members focus on individual change as the stepping stone to larger societal change. We bring multiple strategies together toward a larger common goal of strong, healthy and inclusive communities with justice and equity for all.
When your workplace campaign choices reflect s the diverse interests and values of your employees, they appreciate the opportunity, become more engaged in the campaign, and become more engaged in their community.
The organizations represented by Community Shares provide diverse and necessary services in their communities and are a great addition to your traditional campaign.
