Sponsorship Opportunities

Become a United Way of the Lakeshore Sponsor!

Sponsors allow us to invest in what our community tells us matters most - helping working families meet their basic needs through the attainment of income stability, good health, and educational achievement. Your generous sponsorship ensures that every dollar received from individual donors is able to go directly to support local programs that build a thriving community for us all.
 

There's something in it for you too! Your partnership with United Way is recognized through our online and print communications, at community events, and through more than 400 United Way campaign presentations that take place with over 45,000 employees throughout the year.
 

Through a United Way sponsorship, whether it's a specific event or as a signature sponsor, you can align your company with the strength of the United Way brand, while demonstrating your generosity and a commitment to improving lives and strengthening our community.
