Circle of Excellence Awards
The United Way Circle of Excellence award winners in the categories of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum have gone above and beyond in more ways than one. While total pledge dollars are important, the criteria for the United Way Circle of Excellence awards take other important factors into account including community involvement. This involvement includes engaging in a certain number of United Way events per year such as Days of Action, Stuff the Bus, Hometown Huddle, the Community Baby Shower, Employee Campaign Manager Training, or a United Way program tour. Other factors include employee per capita, participation, total dollar increase, a corporate gift, sponsorship, or special event. Those award winners include:
