Each year, United Way’s Women in Philanthropy
program collects holiday gifts and stockings for foster youth.
This year, Women in Philanthropy is teaming up with United Way’s
Emerging Leaders program to provide holiday
gifts and stockings for foster youth.
Stocking Drive – All Stockings Have Been Purchased!
Our stocking drive will benefit the foster teens in United Way’s
$en$e-Ability project. A donation of $30 will provide a stocking
for a teenage foster youth who is close to emancipation. Each
stocking will include a $25 gift card to Target, snacks, a first
aid kit, a yearly planner, socks, a hat and a blanket.
United Way California Capital Region will open the 2014-15

improved and will streamline the application whether your
organization is applying for United Way, Combined Federal
Campaign (CFC) or California State Employees Charitable Campaign
(CSECC), or all of the above! Please check back soon for
additional information and instructions.
If you have any questions about the certification process, please

The community where your business is located is most likely also
the neighborhood where you and your employees live, meaning that
when you support the nonprofit organizations in the community,
you are also giving back to your neighbors. Corporate
philanthropy most frequently comes in the form of office giving
campaigns. These campaigns can be pledge drives for fundraising
or collecting donations of goods for a local nonprofit.
Volunteering your time for a community service project or to
advocate for those who are less fortunate is another way to
engage with those in your area.
No matter how it is presented or which options management
chooses, any type of corporate philanthropy program helps your
bottom line. According to several studies of consumer practices,
a company who is dedicated to serving nonprofits in its community
reaps many benefits. In fact, the company receives as many
benefits from its philanthropy as the people who live in the area
do. Partnering with a charity can help to raise brand awareness
for your company, making it a strategic business move as well as
a philanthropic investment.
As part of a national initiative to increase financial aid
awareness, the United States Department of Education’s Office of
Federal Student Aid (FSA) is collaborating with the United Way
California Capital Region, Sacramento State University and
Sacramento A.C.T to provide an in-depth financial aid Roundtable
discussion and a financial aid Train-the-Trainer session for
community-based and college readiness organizations in the
Sacramento area on January 7th.
Another hardworking team of employees from Allied/Nationwide
recently volunteered their time at United Way certified nonprofit

Allied/Nationwide was presented with the “Full Plate Funder”
Award by Dave Martinez, Executive Director, before the group got
to work sorting food to be distributed.
