Ways to Win:
1. Shopping is Grand Challenge*:
Purchase the winning ticket for a one night stay at Grand America with their Shopping is Grand package which includes a pool side Executive Suite, complimentary Grand Spa access, Grand America pool towel, $50 Hotel America credit and a $50 City Creek Center Gift Card.

2. 1 year Reserved Parking Space and Payroll Deduct Challenge*:
Sign up to donate $2 per pay period or $52 through payroll deduction and you will be entered to win one of our 4 available 1 year reserved parking spaces. If you win you will receive a reserved parking space in front of or near your building. By donating through payroll deduct, giving is easier and less painful on your pocketbook; however, we will accept checks and cash as well. This challenge is so easy, you won't miss just $2 per paycheck, and your donation will impact someone less fortunate in our community. To enter simply fill out your donation form for payroll deduction or attach a check or cash and give it to your team captain. You will be receiving donation forms soon.
Please call us if you don't get one or click donation form to print one.
3. $100 or More Club Challenge*:
Donate $100 or more to get your name into this challenge to win one of 2 available Apple iPads. This donation can be made by check, cash or payroll deduction. The odds of winning an iPad are pretty good with this challenge!
4. Division Challenge*:
The Top 2 Divisions with the highest dollar amount per capita of giving will win an Apple iPad to raffle off in their division! How does your division win? If everyone in your division gives $1, your per capita amount will be $1. So, to increase your chances of being the winning division, encourage everyone to give a little bit more this year! Not only will it help your division win, but every individual that gives increases their chances to win by every dollar they give. We are encouraging our Division chairs and team captains to come up with fun ways to encourage donating to the ISU United Way Campaign and to help their division win! *Only those who donate to the ISU United Way Campaign will be eligible to win an Apple iPad.
5. The More You Give Challenge*:
This year, for every dollar you give, you get an entry to win one of many great prizes. Give $10? You'll get 10 chances to win. Give $50? You'll get 50 chances to win. So give more this year! We have a Kindle, One night Yurt Rental, Performing Arts tickets, Athletic Tickets, Massages, Car Detailing, ISU Bookstore Gift Cards, and much more.
The current economic climate, recent layoffs and ongoing needs for Southeast Idaho makes this year's campaign important. Because of corporate sponsorships 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to area programs the United Way sponsors or you can designate eligible 501(c)3 organizations. Contact us for more information.
