Nevada County Businesses and Employees Give Back to the Community

United Way campaigns are starting to happen all across the United States and the local United Way of Nevada County Campaign is currently under way. In September, United Way Global Corporate Leaders such as JC Penny’s, Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America, Texas Instruments and AT&T started encouraging their employees to give back to the community through the United Way annual payroll pledge process. Local campaigns such as Telestream, County of Nevada, B &C True Value, the City of Grass Valley and The Union Newspaper generally start their workplace giving campaigns and special events in the month of October.

Many businesses and government agencies across the county are participating in the United Way work place giving campaign for the campaign year 2015-2016. Some of them also host events such as Soup-a-thons, Friday Jeans Day, and used book sales to raise money for United Way of Nevada County. The money raised from events and the payroll pledge process goes into the local United Way Community Impact Fund or employees can designate through payroll pledging to any specific 501 (c)(3) non-profit of their choice.

This year, United Way of Nevada County’s local campaign motto is “Growing our local impact through the Power of Ten”. United Way is looking to the community to increase its impact by ten dollars more, ten percent more or by increasing their campaign by ten more people.

The United Way of Nevada County is currently focusing their efforts on the Basic Needs of the community, specifically in the impact areas of Food, Access to Health Care and Emergency Shelter. United Way of Nevada County’s mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. United Way of Nevada County envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their desired potential through healthy lives, education and income stability.

Any business that is interested in getting involved with the 2015-2016 United Way campaign should contact the United Way office at (530) 274-8111. This is a great way to encourage employees to give back to the community either to United Way or to a 501(c) (3) non-profit of their choice. All monies raised from the United Way campaign for the community impact fund stay local.
