Across the country, leadership giving is the fastest growing segment of company workplace campaigns. Recent surveys suggest companies with a leadership giving program have a 20 percent higher employee per capita giving than companies not using this technique. In the 2010 campaign, leadership giving at United Way of Northeast Florida represented nearly 56 percent of the total employee contributions.
