Sponsored Executives, loaned by companies and organizations across the city, make our fundraising campaign possible.

Sponsored Executives join our team to make our fundraising campaign possible!

United Way Winnipeg raises millions to invest in a city-wide web of essential services that helps thousands of people in our community.

An important part of the fundraising effort is the Leadership Development program. Employees from the public & private sectors are loaned by their employer for a 16-week period to help with the campaign, joining us at our office on Main Street as effective & efficient fundraisers.

Sponsored Executives bring energy & critical people-power to organizing hundreds of workplace campaigns across the city, from setting up campaign meetings, to managing events & creating awareness about how United Way is working to build a strong, healthy & safe community for all.
