EMAIL SUBJECT: You can still help


Dear [employee name],

Our United Way Campaign ends on [campaign end date]. If you haven’t yet had the chance to pledge, I want to share a little bit with you about why I support our community through the campaign.

As you may have heard during the campaign, 44% of families in Madison County are not able to earn enough to provide for their families despite working hard. That number skyrockets to 80-90% for single-parent households. No family should struggle to make ends meet - having to make choices like "should I put food on the table or pay my utility bill?" The good news is that you can make the difference. Together, we can break this cycle, by giving families the chance all of us deserve.

By supporting United Way's efforts, we can provide families in need with the tools and resources they need to not only survive but to thrive. When we help families in our local community overcome poverty and improve financial stability, we can prevent much more costly consequences that affect our entire community.

[share a personal anecdote about why you choose to give]

That is why I choose to give — because I know that when kids and families succeed, we all succeed. Together, we can create healthy, well-educated and financially stable kids and families.

Will you join me in being a part of the change?

You can give through [campaign end date]. Please turn in your pledge form to [name] or fill out the your pledge information online here {insert link to company's online pledge form - your United Way can provide this information}.
