Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital
Thank you to all of our wonderful companies who support United Way with workplace campaigns, including the Top Ten donors!
NAUW benefits the Nacogdoches area by pooling donations and resources. Large or small, all donations and resources count. We transform individual lives and bring long-lasting, systemic change to tough issues, like family financial stability and academic success.
Annual Live United Campaign
United Way’s Workplace Campaigns are about bringing people together where they work to tackle our community’s most challenging issues – because no one person or organization can do it alone.Whether a small business, a major corporation or even a non-profit organization, you can join the numerous local businesses and organizations that run United Way campaigns each year.Participating in a United Way campaign will give your organization the opportunity to learn firsthand about the needs in our local community as well as provide rewarding team building experiences through volunteerism .Every workplace campaign is different and can be shaped around your organization’s culture. Setting up and running a campaign is simple, and we can help you every step of the way.
Our Cornerstone Partners
Commercial Bank of Texas
Nacogdoches Area United Way (NAUW) invites you to partner in the Cornerstone program in efforts to more effectively serve our community. Through the Cornerstone program, local business donors are funding the business expenses of the United Way office, ensuring funds raised through Workplace Campaigns go directly to our partner agencies. Our goal is to find support for 100% of this budget item. Each year we are reducing the gap between what is funded and the total cost. Last year we covered 50% of our total business expenses and each year we hope to close that gap with new donors.
Because your company demonstrates philanthropic leadership, we believe this program is a great fit for your community branding and want to encourage you to consider becoming one of our Cornerstone partners. The process could not be simpler; you select a giving level and NAUW will send you a periodic invoice. There are four investment levels and each receives placement in our banner advertising in our printed media, social media and on our website.
Thank you NIBCO for hosting the annual Turkey Trot
In addition to knowing that you are a valuable member of our mission, NAUW will provide the following benefits of recognition and placement commensurate with each giving level:
SFA Student United Way
The SFA Student United Way is a community service organization on the Stephen F. Austin State University campus that partners with various NCAW agencies to make a difference in the Nacogdoches community through a focus on service while impacting, leading and uniting. These students organize several strategic events during the year:
Coat Drive and Art Supply Drive
Fun Day and Fall Festival in partnership with Solid foundation
Breast Cancer Awareness: In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October members wear pink as they #KissCancerGoodbye
Live United Chain Link Sale: During the week of Homecoming SUW Members sell links with encouragements on them which are joined then displayed at the Homecoming game.
Flamingo Flocking: This fundraiser is always the most popular. Students, staff and individuals in the Nacogdoches Community pay $20/Yard to have SUW members flock a home of their choice. Late at night, members travel to the destination and place life size flamingos in the individual’s yard. It’s always interesting and fun to see!
