Join our campaign teamEvery year, United Way recruits 40 people to help support our fundraising campaigns at workplaces across the Lower Mainland. Campaign Associates are an extension of our fundraising team and help manage our 775 company accounts.
The Campaign Associate program triples our fundraising staff at no extra cost to United Way and allows us to provide outstanding service to our donors.
What is a Campaign Associate?
A Campaign Associate is an employee who is loaned (seconded) from their organization or sponsored by an organization to work for 16 weeks during United Way’s annual fundraising campaign from September to December to help raise funds to support over 450 programs and initiatives that prevent poverty, bullying and social isolation. Associates gain valuable professional development during this fun, action-packed work term.
Loaned employees apply through their workplace and continue to be paid by their employer. A sponsored Associate is an individual who is hired by United Way, whose bi-weekly honorarium is paid for by a sponsoring organization.
Campaign Associates earn academic credits with BCIT.
Thanks to an innovative partnership with BCIT participants in United Way’s Campaign Associate Program will be awarded academic credit for hours worked, volunteer time and training towards two Associate Certificates.
