What is a Pacesetter? The campaign pacesetters are companies that elect to run their United Way campaign prior to the public campaign kick off. These companies are not required to meet goals or donate more than they have in previous years. The successful campaigns of these organizations are combined together and used throughout the public to “set the pace” for the upcoming campaign and excite the general public!
