Employee Fundraising

At JEA we’re building community because its our community. This is just one of the reasons our employees raise funds for United Way and Community Health Charities. 

United Way Employee Campaign

Since 1924, United Way of Northeast Florida has been the leading organization on the First Coast improving lives of one of every three Northeast Florida citizens by addressing today’s immediate, basic needs while focusing on long-term solutions.

JEA began hosting United Way employee campaigns more than 20 years ago.  JEA employees have raised over $8 million dollars through employee pledge contributions, donated vacation and safety leave time and funds raised at special events coordinated by our employees.  For more information about United Way and their local agencies, please visit United Way of Northeast Florida.
