      2012 Campaign
   Coordinator’s Guide
Thank you for the job you are about to undertake. There are two things you should know right off the bat.
First, you should feel proud that you have been asked to serve in this capacity. Not everyone has the
opportunity to directly help their community and serving as a Campaign Coordinator for your company
allows you to do just that! Second, the Schuylkill United Way is here to help you. If there is anything you
need, please do not hesitate to call us anytime at 570.622.6421.

Here are some ideas and instructions that will make your Schuylkill United Way employee campaign a success. At
the end of this list is a checklist you can use to help you keep track of these proven practices.

    Set a goal for your campaign and announce it to your employees. This does not necessarily have to be a
     dollar goal – you can raise the bar for increased participation.

    Dedicate a meeting to the United Way campaign. Announce the date in advance and give the employees
     examples of what is supported by their donation by providing information from our brochure or by sending a
     link to our website (www.schuylkillunitedway.org).

    Create a fun theme for your campaign and carry it throughout all of your communications. For example, if
     you selected a football theme, you could send messages in the days leading up to the employee campaign
     meeting that use football references. This is an easy way to add a little fun to your campaign!

    Obtain support from the management team. A word of support from the person in charge or a note they
     provide to employees usually works well. The word of support or the note should not make the employee
     feel like they have to give in order to please the boss, but instead should simply tell the employee this is
     something the employer supports and that he or she wants the employees to consider supporting it as well. A
     sample letter can be provided if needed.

    Invite a representative from the Schuylkill United Way to attend your campaign meeting to tell employees
     what the Schuylkill United Way is all about. If you would also like a representative from a United Way
     partner agency to address employees, please ask someone at the Schuylkill United Way office to coordinate
     this for you. All partner agency speakers have been trained to give their talk in five minutes or less.

    Available upon request, the Schuylkill United Way can schedule the grand prize vehicle to make an
     appearance during the employee meetings. In some cases, the vehicle can be left on company grounds for an
     extended period of time. This is a great opportunity for donors to see what is up for grabs! Also, keep in
     mind that the Schuylkill United Way does have a short campaign video that can be presented during the
     meeting or borrowed and shown at your own convenience.

    Send a group of employees on a tour of a couple different Schuylkill United Way partner agencies.
     Complete lists of the agencies that the Schuylkill United Way helps to support are on the back of this guide.
     This is a great way to expose employees to see what programs and services are offered by each of the
     agencies. Have them share their experiences at an employee meeting.

    Try to find employees who have personally benefited from the services of a Schuylkill United Way partner
     agency. If someone has used a partner agency to help them at one time or another, and is willing to talk about
     their experience in a positive way, ask them to speak at the employee meeting. This is the MOST effective
     way to get employees to give.

    Offer incentives to employees who give. See the list of incentives later in this guide for ideas. Incentives
     offered by the company and given internally are above and beyond those offered by the Schuylkill United
     Way prize giveaways.
 Distribute brochures and pledge cards to all employees whether they plan to give or not. The pledge cards
  provide valuable information that can be tucked away for future reference.

 Set a deadline for the pledge forms to be submitted. Some employees will undoubtedly want to think about it
  before deciding whether or not to give. Others will fill out their pledge form during the meeting and submit
  immediately. Ideally, you should give employees no more than two weeks to complete and submit their

 At the employee meeting, help introduce the Schuylkill United Way staff and partner agency representative.
  Also, remind employees of the deadline, your campaign goal, and of any incentives you are offering.

 After the meeting/deadline, collect completed pledge cards and separate the prize stubs by $1, $3, and $5. If
  the employee chooses payroll deduction, keep the pledge card for the human resources department. Please
  note: Payroll deduction for pledges made during the 2012 campaign (in the year of 2011) starts in January of

 At the end of your employee campaign, send all non-payroll deduction pledge cards along with the cash or
  check in the amount of the donation and all separated prize stubs in an envelope and either mail or call for
  pick up no later than 2 PM on Thursday, November 17, 2011:

Schuylkill United Way
Attn: Kelly K. Malone
91 S Progress Avenue
Pottsville, PA 17901

 Share your final total with your employees and compare it to the goal you set at the beginning of your
  campaign kick-off. Even if you did not hit your goal, you still want to thank employees for their support and
  make them feel proud that they gave what they could.

 Attend the Appreciation Breakfast on Friday, November 18 at Penn State Schuylkill at 8:00 AM. This event
  serves as the wrap up event for the campaign and the total raised in Schuylkill County is announced. Awards
  are given to the top campaigns as well as all prize incentives are raffled off including this year’s grand prize,
  the ALL NEW 2012 Chevy Cruze, courtesy of Bob Weaver Chevrolet!

 Invite the Schuylkill United Way back next spring to thank employees for their donations. United Way will
  bring an agency speaker along to again share a success story illustrating how donations are helping people in
  need right here in our community.

Prize Incentive Ideas -

Here are some fun ideas for incentives you can provide that help to encourage employees to give.

    An extra day or half-day off for a certain level of donation. Most companies set the minimum donation for
     this incentive equal to one day’s pay for the employee. If you would like the formula for “Give-A-Day, Get-
     A-Day” please contact the Schuylkill United Way office for the worksheet.

    Give a small gift of appreciation to all employees who turn in their completed pledge card. A company t-shirt
     or hat go a long way.

    Hold a drawing for all employees who donate. Usually bigger prizes result in more donations.

    Hold an ice cream social or pizza party after the campaign is complete for all who participated. Do it on a
     Friday as a way to get the weekend started early.

    Offer free food at employee meetings where employees are asked to give. If the employee isn’t there to be
     asked, most likely they will not give. Free food is a proven method to boost attendance at these meetings.

    If your boss is willing, consider setting a challenge for employees that if met would result in the boss having
     to do something embarrassing. For example, the boss could dye his/her hair a funny color for a day if the
     employees meet a dollar goal or a participation goal. Or, the boss could take a pie in the face if the goal is
     met. Anything that is harmless and fun is a way for the boss to show the employees that he/she supports the
     Schuylkill United Way on a personal level.

    Offer a “Sleep-In” or “Long-lunch” pass

    Raffle off lottery, sports, or movie tickets or give away a special parking spot closest to the building.

    Hold an auction. Encourage employees to donate unique items of value or plan a yard sale. Have employees
     clean out their closets and set up a company-wide garage sale to benefit the Schuylkill United Way.

    Host a chili or kielbasa cook off contest. Employees cook their favorite recipe and enter it into the contest.
     Participants pay to sample all of the entries during lunch.

    Pet or baby picture contest. See who can match the most staff members with their pet or baby pictures. With
     the pets, co-workers can pay an amount to vote for the cutest, most unusual, and funniest.

The Schuylkill United Way staff has TONS of other ideas. Please touch base with Heather Delp before you begin to
plan your campaign. Remember, we are always here to help!

Mini Articles

One Is Not Like the Other
The Schuylkill United Way is governed by its own individual bylaws, constitution, and code of
ethics. While United Way Worldwide and United Way of Pennsylvania provide branding and
support services, it’s the 31-member Board of Directors who are dedicated to providing
funding, guidance, and encouragement to the 15 partner agencies that provide programs and
services to residents of Schuylkill County for little to no charge. Board members and officers
are comprised of businessmen and women who live and work in Schuylkill County and the
immediate surrounding area. All board members volunteer their time and are elected for a
term of three years with the option to serve two consecutive terms. Regular meetings are
held the second Monday of each month at 4:00 PM in the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce
building, Pottsville.

What’s Raised Here Stays Here
When donating to the Schuylkill United Way campaign, each and every dollar raised stays
right here in Schuylkill County. Need proof? Available upon request is the current Financial
Statement which lists allocation amounts to each of the 15partner agencies who provide
programs and services to residents of Schuylkill County. Monthly allocations are decided
uponby the Schuylkill United Way Budget Committee. Members of the committee are
appointed bythe Schuylkill United Way Board President and with approval by the Board of
Directors. The committee meets once a year to review the funding requests of each agency.
An extensive ten-page packet requests various information including; the number of
residents, income, and age of those within the community who are served by the agency.
This information is a good indication and helps the committee decide which programs and
services need additional funding and support in the year to come.

Your One Gift Does It All
Corporate, employee, and individual donors in Schuylkill County are able to give to several
different agencies in one convenient contribution through the Schuylkill United Way. Your
onegift does it all! Donations can be split up among any number of agencies as designated by
a three digit number to signify the desired agencies. Every dollar that comes into the
Schuylkill United Way office, located in Pottsville, is tracked and carefully handled as to
respect the wishes of the donor. Keep in mind, by giving to the Schuylkill United Way; you are
supporting programs in many different service fields whether it’s providing emergency
shelter, health care, family counseling, youth programming, drug prevention, or disaster
relief. This wide array of programs helps to solve the challenges that one agency alone may
not be able to meet.

No One Wants to Deny Services
In most cases, agencies are multi-faceted organizations that provide a large number of services
   touch a multitude our community. Members of the board,
to meetwith the needs ofof needs. Funding from the Schuylkill United Way can only fund a small
   committee, and volunteers are focused on meeting the
          of those services, so programs and
portionby supporting and providingcosts must be met elsewhere from other sources. Agencies may ask
   services to member of meet those who need help
their clients to help our community expenses so that no services are lost. No one wants to deny a
service to–anyone in need. Unfortunately, in many cases, the total cost for those services well
   the most whether
exceeds the dollars that the Schuylkill United Way can provide. This means that sometimes a
service cannot be provided as often as needed, unless there is another funding source to cover
the costs. Usually, those additional funding sources come in the form of federal and state
funding, but with local cutbacks, even that source is oftentimes limited.

Rules are Rules
In order to be a participating agency of the Schuylkill United Way, agencies must adhere to strict
rules and regulations as set by the Board of Directors. Each year, every agency must submit a
copy of their annual report, most recent audit, list of current board of directors and officers, IRS
990 Form, and the Bureau of Charitable Organizations Certificate. Agencies must be compliant
with all requests so that the Schuylkill United Way can be assured that residents of Schuylkill
County are properly being taken care of and appropriate programs and services are being
offered. When one agency comes up short and is unable to offer a certain program or service,
rest assure there is another agency that is able to offer you a program or service that meets your
needs. The Schuylkill United Way is proud to have a hands on relationship with each partner
agency and that each agency works well with one another to conquer a common goal…serve the
community at large. its emergency shelter, health care, family counseling, youth programming,
drug prevention, or disaster relief.

We Went Down In History
In January of 1936, a small committee met to discuss the possibility of starting a Community
Chest here in Schuylkill County. Several years later, the first Community Chest campaign
was held raising $72,000 for the community and used to support various local human service
agencies. In the early 1970s, the Community Chest became the Schuylkill United Way and has
since raised more than $22 million for the residents in our community. Today, the Schuylkill
United Way is independently run by a volunteer 31-member Board of Directors. Board members
and officers are comprised of businessmen and women who live and work in Schuylkill County
and the immediate surrounding area and allows the Schuylkill United Way to stay in touch with
the needs of our community. Members of the board, committee,and volunteers are focused
on meeting the needs by supporting and providing programs and services to member of our
community who need help the most – whether its emergency shelter, health care, family
counseling, youth programming, drug prevention, or disaster relief.

Separate but One
Because of the overwhelming support the community of Tamaqua has shown over the last few
years, Tamaqua has its own campaign goal which is counted towards the overall county goal.
For the 2012 Campaign, Tamaqua Area is set to raise $100,075 which is part of the overall goal
of raising a total of $1,000,075 for Schuylkill County agencies who offer programs and services
to residents in our community. While the Tamaqua Area has its very own Kick-Off and         13
Campaign goal, they are very much a part of the Schuylkill United Way.
