OSWEGO, NY Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The United Way of Greater Oswego County is offering its donors the opportunity to be rewarded for helping their community.
Chris Fitzgerald, owner of Stability Fitness in Oswego, recently presented the United Way with a donation for the agencyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Donor Incentive Program.
The program offers those who donate to the United WayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2009 / 2010 annual campaign the opportunity to win special prizes as an incentive for supporting the United Way.
Resource development director for the United Way, Lois Luber, said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“We established our incentive campaign last year in response to a suggestion by our Campaign Cabinet, due to the feedback we received from our donors and our campaign coordinators, we have decided to once again partner with a number of area business to offer our supporters the opportunity to win some great prizes. With many workplace campaigns still active, I would like to remind everyone that those pledging a minimum donation of $1 per week for one year to the United WayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2009 / 2010 campaign through their workplace payroll deduction will be automatically entered into the drawings, which will take place in February. These incentives are a nice way for us to do something for our donors and hopefully increase the number of first time pledges.Ã¢â‚¬Â
