As our information and communication ambassadors, Department Representatives are more important now than ever in the support and success of our United Way Campaign. Plus, you’ll get access to special opportunity drawings.

Email to sign up as a Department Rep!


Department Reps have five easy but very important responsibilities during the campaign:

  1. Attend the Kickoff Breakfast and Training: Wednesday, January 17, 8:30 AM.
  2. Display, publicize, and share campaign information with your department.
  3. Schedule an informational presentation by United Way for your department for your chance to be entered into a prize opportunity drawing. We’ll keep the presentation short and sweet. Hosting a department presentation is the number one way to share communications about the campaign across campus.
  4. Encourage your colleagues to participate in the Bean Bag Tournament and the Campus Store Round-Up.
    • Get some fun competition going and sponsor a department team to participate in the Bean Bag Tournament!
    • It’s a great time for some new office swag from the Campus Store, and it can benefit the campaign! Win-win!
  5. Advertise Candy Gram sales and pick up your department’s Candy Grams and distribute them to your co-workers just in time for Staff Appreciation Day!


Some of the benefits of participating as a Department Representative include:

  • Involvement in a campus-wide effort to help your Santa Barbara Community.
  • Opportunity to engage and network with colleagues across campus and in different departments.
  • Bragging rights at being the most informational one in the office for all things United Way and the opportunity to educate about Santa Barbara’s non-profit community, while offering everyone the chance to give.
  • BONUS: You’re automatically entered in weekly opportunity drawings for super cool prizes from campus and the community!
