Leaders in Corporate Giving
United Way of Central Alabama celebrates and recognizes local companies and their employees that exemplify the spirit of philanthropy through generous corporate and employee gifts, special events, volunteer activities, and providing or sponsoring a loaned executive.
Top Five Workplace Campaigns:
Regions Financial Corporation has been United Way’s largest workplace campaign since 2006. More than 100 employees serve on a visiting allocation team or as loaned executives.
BlueCross and BlueShield of Alabama are long-standing partners, participating in the annual Day of Caring, visiting allocation teams and loaned executives.
Jointly Alabama Power Company, Southern Company Services and Southern Nuclear Operating Company have been a leader in United Way’s corporate giving. Last year 45 employees volunteered on a visiting allocation and eight served as loaned executives. Gordon Martin and Mark Crosswhite are serving on the board.
Publix has rapidly grown to 20 stores in Jefferson, Shelby, and St. Clair counties. Their reach has spread beyond supporting the annual campaign to funding UWCA initiatives like Success By 6 and participating in Hands on Birmingham’s Back to School Backpack Drive. District Manager James Mowery serves on the board and several employees have served as loaned executives.
EBSCO Industries Inc.’s dedication to improving Central Alabama runs deep within the company’s history. The company’s leadership has set a remarkable example of giving to United Way.
