wHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

“When I was first asked to come up with a volunteer plan for our company, I was completely lost, then I found Karissa and United Way! United Way has all the connections and creates a yearlong, volunteer plan based on the interests of your company. We have partnered with United Way since January of 2018 making it simple for our employees to team build and engage, while making an impact on the community.” - Tami Fahey, InvestCloud

 

“Planning our year-round volunteerism is so easy with United Way. They customize a plan specific for our company, and our employees, to ensure we’re doing the greatest good in the communities we serve. Having this calendar helps us to keep focus on our volunteer efforts throughout the year.” - Melissa DiCicco, Landmark Credit Union

 

"Circa's experience with the United Way has exceeded our expectations! They have been a tremendous help by us develop a Year-Round Volunteer Plan that was specifically tailored to help us achieve our own DEI initiatives as an organization. Karissa and her team have been very supportive and patient along the way. We look forward to continuing our partnership with United Way in 2022!"  - Drake Collins, Circa
