The Emprise Bank United Way 2017 Campaign was both a financial & physical opportunity to give back to our communities. We reached our company-wide monetary donation participation goal, and we had 55 of our teams at 100% participation through payroll deduction and/or one-time donation gifts. United Way supports programs and initiatives within the following community building blocks: education (nurturing children's potential), income (fostering financial stability), and health (improving people's wellness). Gifts to United Way will fund programs at local agencies, United Way's "Be There" school attendance initiative, the United Way 2-1-1 helpline, the United Way Volunteer Center, Give Items of Value Program and other community initiatives.
Another aspect of the Emprise Bank United Way 2017 Campaign was participation in the Loaned Executive Program. Each year, companies step forward and offer United Way one of their own employees or sponsor an employee to help with the campaign. Loaned Executives help companies strategize and develop their campaigns, present at employee campaign meetings and help companies wrap up and report their results. Companies and employees were recognized for their participation at the United Way Kickoff Breakfast held in September.
We also used our campaign week to focus on volunteer opportunities in our communities. Photos of our Emprise Empowers volunteers at the different events are highlighed below. Learn more about our Emprise Empowers community involvement initiative by clicking here.
