The United Way of Northeast Louisiana Workplace Campaign unites and inspires your employees, giving them a unique opportunity to donate to and volunteer for causes that matter most to them.

Last year, we raised more than $4 million through partnering with over 170 companies during the annual Workplace Campaign, strengthening our community by investing dollars to improve the lives of the people who live and work here.

A partnership with United Way of Northeast Louisiana provides your company and employees with these and many other opportunities:


Opportunities to give back and make a difference, including customized employee and individual volunteer opportunities coordinated through our VolunteerUNITED Volunteer Engagement Center.


Our giving options, including payroll deduction, electronic pledging, and online giving options, make giving easy, convenient, and affordable


United Way of Northeast Louisiana’s Community Impact is driven not only by our volunteers' passion, but also their knowledge of the community, ensuring contributions are invested into solutions that make the biggest impact.


Opportunities for direct contributions to any 501(c)(3) non-profit human services organization


Enhance your company’s image in the community by meeting Campaign Best Practices and qualifying for community-wide corporate recognition through our annual Celebrating Excellence Community Awards Program honoring outstanding United Way of Northeast Louisiana Workplace Campaigns, Volunteers, Community Partners, and Leadership.

Leadership Giving

At the heart of United Way of Northeast Louisiana is a dedicated group of people with strength, character and sense of purpose who inspire others to help meet the needs of the community. We are thankful for the generosity of our leadership givers who are committed to helping people and improving our community.

A leadership gift of $500 or more to United Way of Northeast Louisiana is an investment in more caps and gowns, stronger, financially stable families, healthier children and seniors, and increased access to basic needs such as food, shelter, medicine, transportation, and disaster relief. Your gift is strategically invested in local programs, initiatives, and community collaborations that aim to meet United Way’s community impact goals.

Our community’s future rests with leaders like you—people who see the big picture and are willing to share part of themselves with their neighbors. We ask you to join the fight, make the commitment, and set a leadership example for others to follow by becoming a member of one of three United Way of Northeast Louisiana leadership societies:

Tocqueville Society: Annual Gift of $10,000+
Steamboat Society: Annual Gift of $1,000-$9,999
Bayou Society: Annual Gift of $500-$999
