Our Campaign supports our 28 agency partners that help 1 in 2 (or 109,000+) people in our community every year. Hosting a workplace campaign not only supports our very own neighbors, friends and family; but also boosts workplace morale and develops a caring, philanthropic culture. United Way remains committed to helping you develop a customized and personalized workplace campaign that fits your organization's situation and needs. Visit our Campaign page to learn more!

Thanks to our Mid America Bank partners, we unveiled our new volunteer platform in 2021 to provide a one-stop shop for posting and finding volunteer opportunities in our community.

Over 1,100 volunteers share their time and talent to fight for a brighter future for everyone in our community.

United Way has many committees that are the muscle behind our organization. With just 6 staff people, we could not do this important work without our dedicated committee members. Check out our list of committees and let us know if you'd be interested in joining one...or more!
