FULTON, NY – As it has for the past four years, the United Way of Greater Oswego County’s Donor Incentive Program is proving to be a worthwhile addition to many companies’ employee campaigns in support of United Way.
The Donor Incentive Campaign allows those who donate to the United Way’s 2012 / 2013 Annual Campaign the opportunity to win special prizes as an incentive for supporting their United Way.
“We have received positive feedback from both donors who appreciate the opportunity, and campaign coordinators who are happy to be able to offer the incentive to the employees,” said resource development director for United Way Lois Luber. “This year we partnered with a number of area businesses so that those pledging a minimum donation of $1 per week for one year to the United Way’s 2012 / 2013 Annual Campaign will automatically have a chance at winning some great prizes, which will be awarded in the spring. These incentives are a nice way for us to do something for our donors and hopefully increase the number of first time pledges.”
According to Luber, this year United Way is focused on having gift cards to area restaurants, grocery stores and gas stations as the prizes that donors to the United Way’s 2012 / 2013 Annual Campaign will be eligible to win.
“We are pleased to be able to offer these prizes to our donors and are appreciative of the support we have received from those who helped make these prizes available including; Burritt Motors, Constellation Energy Nuclear Group’s Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, Entergy, and Planned Results,” said Luber.
