Sample CEO Endorsement Letter

Dear (Employee Name):

It’s that time of year again when we have the opportunity to LIVE UNITED.  When we come together under the umbrella of our local United Way we have the chance to give, advocate and volunteer. In doing so, we share our blessings with those less fortunate here in our community.

Being a good corporate citizen is a core value here at (organization name). It makes me proud of our team year after year to see so many of you participate in our annual United Way Employee Campaign, putting into action the “give” portion of the LIVE UNITED theme.  This year, however, I’d like you to consider being “one more.”  It’s simple really.  One more dollar, one more donor, one more life changed.

For me, giving to our local United Way makes sense.  It’s appealing as it impacts so many different organizations and helps people with a variety of different needs.  The helping hand up that our gifts provide can mean the difference between a quality life and desperation.  I encourage you to learn more about how incredibly effective and efficient our local United Way is by visiting online at www.unitedwaynorman.org.

Thank you for being a part of our (organization name) team.  I appreciate your thoughtful consideration in joining me this year in support of United Way of Norman.  Let’s continue to LIVE UNITED and change lives for the better!

Sincerely,

(CEO Signature)
