Awards

United Way of the Midlands recognizes many outstanding individuals and organizations throughout the year. 

2017 Pacesetter and Advanced Campaigns: Pacesetters are a select group of companies and organizations that choose to complete United Way campaigns before the official launch of campaign season. They “set the pace” for the upcoming campaign, helping to ensure at least 40% of the campaign total is secured when the campaign kicks off.
 
Alyce Kemp DeWitt Award:  This award recognizes a volunteer whose creativity and passion have made a measurable impact on United Way of the Midlands.
 
2017 Campaign Awards:  These awards recognize companies running outstanding workplace campaigns. Awards given out include Best of Class, Division Chair Award, Merit Awards, Premier Awards, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards and the Community Champion Award.
 
Community Impact Awards: These awards are presented at the United Way of the Midlands volunteer awards ceremony to recipients for their outstanding contributions to helping people in the Midlands.
 
Humanitarian of the Year Award: This award is given each year to an individual who clearly demonstrates extraordinary leadership in philanthropic and human services. Highly selective criteria make it the single honor of philanthropic achievement in the Midlands. Among other criteria, nominees must provide outstanding leadership working with others over a sustained period.
 
LIVE UNITED Volunteer Award: Wondering what it means to actually "LIVE UNITED?" It's a credo. A mission. A goal. But more than that, it is a call to action to give, advocate and volunteer in order to improve the lives of everyone. LIVE UNITED Awards are presented to United Way volunteers who not only understand what it means to Live United, but demonstrate it every day.
 
The Spirit of the Midlands Award for Corporate Leadership: This award is presented to a corporate partner that embodies an overall spirit of giving through contributions of time, leadership and resources in support of United Way’s work in the priority issues of student success, financial stability and health access.
