Our Sponsors

Fox Valley United Way does not like to think of sponsorship as simply a donation; we prefer to think of it as a partnership. A partnership is not one-sided, while we certainly benefit from the arrangement, we want you to benefit as well. Partnering with us is a great way to gain media exposure. United Way events are high profile events with wide media coverage. We do not participate in these events alone; we have businesses, leadership givers and individuals working alongside us. Your business exposure is a cost effective way to advertise, recruit and network.

For more information on how you can be a sponsor contact Denise Blettner.
