Fort Collins Coloradoan Wins Inaugural Campaign of the Year Award
United Way of Larimer County presented its inaugural Campaign of the Year award to the Fort Collins Coloradoan at a celebration event on Thursday, February 5th at the Agave Room in Fort Collins.
Campaign of the Year is a point-based competition among businesses that host a United Way employee giving campaign and implement United Way of Larimer County best practices, including giving back through corporate volunteerism, hosting special events, and increasing employee participation. Of United Way's 150+workplace campaigns, 23 participated in the competition.
The Coloradoan team increased total employee participation by 17% and increased total dollars raised by nearly 12%. They also hosted the 4th Annual Coloradoan Shred-A-Thon benefiting United Way, participated in a Make A Difference Day flood recovery project in Drake, and led do-it-yourself "Service-To-Go" volunteer projects in their office.
"The passion and active participation shown in The Coloradoan campaign reflects the heart of the employees who care deeply about helping people in our community,” said Gordan Thibedeau, President & CEO of United Way of Larimer County. “From special events to raffles, incentives, and more, their team went above and beyond. Thank you to The Coloradoan for inspiring us and helping change more lives in Larimer County.”
In addition to the Campaign of the Year, United Way also awarded three Spirit of Giving Awards and the Campaign Coordinator of the Year award. The Spirit of Giving Awards recognize companies that have done an outstanding job during their employee giving campaign and demonstrate a high level of community engagement.
