As a United Way campaign coordinator, you change more lives and offer more hope to our neighbors in need. Our work wouldn’t be possible without your voice and talents. Thank you for joining our fight to help those in need. Below we provide pledge forms, success stories, logos, templates and more to guide you through this year’s campaign. Please don’t hesitate to contact your United Way representative with any questions.
United Way of Central Maryland’s Designation Policy
A minimum donation of $100 is required for each designation, or it will revert to United Way of Central Maryland. Designation must be to a 501c(3) organization or another United Way. A 5% fee will be deducted on designations, subject to a $5 minimum and a cap of $500. There is no fee to designate to UWCM, our six community funds, 2-1-1 Maryland United Way Helpline, our Family Stability Initiative or our Access to Healthy Food Initiative.
If you have not provided sufficient information for your agency designation, your designation will be redirected to United Way’s Community Impact Safety Net.
If the agency you choose is ineligible and your designation is $100 or more, United Way will notify you so that you may redirect your investment. If we do not get a response, then it will revert to United Way’s Community Impact Safety Net.
If an agency you choose is eligible, but becomes ineligible at any point in the distribution schedule – such as when an agency’s non-profit status is revoked or the agency goes out of business – United Way will direct the remaining portion of your gift amounts to the United Way’s Community Impact Safety Net.
