Small Business Circle

While United Way of Ontario County has been bringing business, individuals, and organizations together to enhance the quality of life in Ontario County for the last 50+ years, a new initiative is starting in an effort to make philanthropy easier and more rewarding for small businesses in Ontario County.

We are inviting small businesses to become SBC Members and investors in United Way of Ontario County.

WAYS TO INVEST - How could your business be involved?
For an annual gift of at least $365, independent contractors or small businesses (generally, those with fewer than 40 employees) will become members of the LIVE UNITED 365 Small Business Circle. Gifts can be a combination of a:

  • Business Owner Contribution
  • Business Owner Contribution & Employee Gifts
  • Business Sponsorship for a UWOC event or project

Those with combined gifts over $1,000 will be recognized at the SBC Leadership level.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT - What are the member benefits?
In addition to knowing that your investment is strengthening Ontario County, members receive special marketing benefits for their gift(s) including:

  • Small Business Circle Member decal sticker and logo in a format for online or print media
  • LIVE UNITED yard sign
  • Listing and link on UWOC’s website
  • Listing in annual report and other relevant publications
  • Thank You ad highlighting SBC members in local newspapers
  • Recognition at annual Campaign Finale networking event
  • Individual or team volunteer projects
  • Opportunities for additional networking, social, and philanthropic activities

Thank you to 2018 Small Business Circle Members:
