How You Can Help

You likely realize we are in the season of our Annual Fundraising Campaign. The Campaign officially kicked off on September 5 and the goal for this year’s campaign is $2,935,000. This year’s campaign Co-Chairs are Pat & Terri Modlin, owners of Room 108 and Felix Street Specialty. The Annual United Way Campaign is how we raise funds to support United Way, our seven Initiatives, our 17 Partner Agencies and special projects throughout that year that address emerging or emergency needs. Through your support Partner Agencies, Initiatives and United Way interact with thousands of area residents each year with a goal of improving lives through the caring power of community.

You can contribute to the advancement of education, health and financial stability in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas in several ways:
