Get Your Company Involved

Show Charlotte your true corporate values by making a difference in the neighborhoods where you live, work, and play.

Hands On Charlotte is one of the ways United Way brings people together to solve our most difficult problems and build a stronger community. When your company partners with us, you’ll be sharing your time and talents with those who need it most.

Deloitte’s 2017 Volunteerism Survey results indicate that creating a culture of volunteerism in the workplace may boost morale, workplace atmosphere, and brand perception. Findings from the survey—which was aimed at working Americans who have volunteered in the last 12 months—also support the idea that employees may volunteer more if they have a better understanding of the impact their efforts are making.


Benefits of Corporate Volunteerism

  • Increase Leadership and Skills Development
  • Enhance Team Building, Loyalty, and Retention
  • Improve Reputation and Consumer Loyalty

Additional Opportunities
