On Wednesday, August 13, the Resource Development team from United Way of Salt Lake was spotted at Fat Cats enjoying a lovely day full of bowling and pizza. What was the cause for such celebration? Well, the RD Department (Rebenue Rousers) raised the most money from TeamRaiser during UWSL’s Internal Campaign! Congrats Rebenue Rousers! And many thanks to all those who contributed and made the celebration possible!
For those that do not know what TeamRaiser is, it is an online tool that allows companies to reach beyond its employees when running a workplace giving campaign. Employees set up giving pages, explaining what LIVING UNITED means to them. Employees are then able to share those pages with their networks through social media and email in order to have others participate in the giving! Through TeamRaiser, the friends and families of employees are able to understand our important work here at UWSL and it gives them an opportunity to make an investment to help us change the odds so that all children and their families – even in our toughest neighborhoods – have the same chance to succeed both in school and in life.
Overall, United Way of Salt Lake was able to raise almost $8,000 just from TeamRaiser alone! We had 163 total contributors. Great job everyone! Thank you to the friends and family members of the UWSL staff for showing us how to LIVE UNITED!
